Scholar explains earliest biblical find to full UNC Charlotte audience

The tiny Silver Scrolls are the oldest known fragment of Bible verses, predating the Dead Sea Scrolls by at least 500 years. They contain the Priestly Blessing found in Numbers 6:24-26: “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
