ASHTAR is the Assyro-Babylonian goddess of Love, Beauty, Health and Fertility whose domain embraced all nature which the Dead Sea is one of its miracles. The Dead Sea is a unique body of salt water formed during a great natural-up heaval just over three million years ago. In salt water springs erupted, forming a valley and lake 400 meters below sea level - the lowest spot on earth. A natural evaporation process continued for thousands of years, resulting in increased levels of minerals and salt in the atmosphere, which is in turn absorbed back into the Dead Sea and deposited on the Dead Sea's bed. This is where we harvest the in mineral composition of the Dead Sea, containing the highest levels of naturally formed Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium. Since ancient times, travelers visited the region to experience the healing, beautifying and rejuvenating powers of the Dead Sea, soaking in the famous waters and coating themselves in the famous waters and coating themselves in t

"No, some lady tried to talk my friend and I into buying some at the mall and she was selling this masque for like $200.00! And a lot of the other stuff was that expensive! I'm not going to pay that much for something to "enhance my skin tone" or "improve my complexion" that's just plain crazy and selfish."

Please read before commenting. this is one writing about the dead sea scrolls. no comparisons please just how it effected you. I am glad if some wants to "dig into" the scrolls an read the original Hebrew, then under stand the environment to come to a conclusion of what they mean. I started my study in 57. No, I don't want a dissertation. only a simple paragraph on how it effected you. here is a generic place to start it is strange I ask a simple question and no one answered it they gave me exactly what I said I did not want. Apparently no one, even the knowledgeable, know how this effects them personally.

"I like the gnostic messages. They make alot of sense. Much more sense then the Christianity we have now. To bad they didn't win the war, the world would have been a better place today."
Sapere Aude :
"Do you honestly expect me to read all that, and then give you a commentary on it? But without comparison. First of all, the link, just brought me to a page that explains how one person interprets the Dead Sea Scrolls. Let me read the Dead Sea Scrolls for myself, without someone else's commentary."
Bibs :
"I believe the Essenes were a heretical Jewish sect. What is most valuable about the scrolls. is that they are a modern discovery of some ancient Hebrew texts of the Old Testament. They confirm most of our present day versions of the bible. There are only a few conflicts with present day translations. Of course the scrolls are damaged and many parts are missing or have not been reconstructed. It is a valuable find. There has been some speculation that they were Nazarites (as was Sampson, and John the Baptist)."
imacatholic2 :
"The Dead Sea Scroll are wonderful. The Dead Sea Scroll contain: - All of the books of the Old Testament (Hebrew scriptures) except Esther - Several books that never became part of the Hebrew Scriptures - Numerous commentaries on the Scriptures - Books having to do with .....- Community life .....- Rules for living .....- Temple worship .....- Other matters There are many duplicates. Fourteen copies of Deuteronomy have been found and two of Isaiah. The scrolls are important because they: - Testify to the accuracy of the people who copied and recopied the Scriptures over the centuries. Despite minor errors, they show us that the Old Testament has not changed since it was compiled. - Throw light on beliefs and customs in Palestine during times between the Old and New Testamants. There was far more diversity among the Jews than had been thought. For more information, see: With love in Christ."

stillbrooke, in regards to the question you answered about the dead sea scrolls I would like to say please forgive me for getting confused. You are absolutley correct the Dead Sea scrolls are all OT. However there was another find in the caves of Egypt in 1945 called the Nag Hammadi scrolls. Which would be classified as New Testament if they were in the Bible. They are viewed as largley Gnostic gospels which is an early sect of Christians. The Nag Hammadi Library, a collection of thirteen ancient codices containing over fifty texts, was discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. This immensely important discovery includes a large number of primary Gnostic scriptures -- texts once thought to have been entirely destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define "orthodoxy" -- scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth. Several of the major texts in the Nag Hammadi collection have more than one English translation; where more than one translation is available, we have listed the translators' names in parenthesis below the name of the text. Texts marked with the {*} had more than one version extant within the Nag Hammadi codices; often these several versions were used conjointly by the translators to provide the single translation presented here. •The Acts of Peter and the Twelve Apostles •Allogenes •The Apocalypse of Adam •The (First) Apocalypse of James •The (Second) Apo The Apocalypse of Adam •The (First) Apocalypse of James •The (Second) Apocalypse of James •The Apocalypse of Paul •The Apocalypse of Peter •The Apocryphon of James: o(Williams translation) o(Cameron translation) •The Apocryphon of John* •Asclepius 21-29 •Authoritative Teaching •The Book of Thomas the Contender •The Concept of Our Great Power •The Dialogue of the Savior •The Discourse on the Eighth and Ninth •Eugnostos the Blessed* •The Exegesis on the Soul •The Gospel of the Egyptians* •The Gospel of Philip •The Gospel of Thomas: o(Patterson & Meyer translation) o(Lambdin translation) o(Patterson & Robinson Translation) o(Grondin interlinear translation) •The Gospel of Truth:* o(Grant translation) o(Attridge & MacRae translation) •The Hypostasis of the Archons •Hypsiphrone •The Interpretation of Knowledge •The Letter of Peter to Philip •Marsanes •Melchizedek •On the Anointing •On the Baptism A •On the Baptism B
