JD: Randy, your knowledge and your background as an archeologist digging in the caves down there at Qumran would you say that the original Dead Sea Scrolls which are there protected in the shrine of the book, are they authentic?

RP: Yeah, I’ve seen these. I was one of the privileged few to be taken into the vault and shown the original scrolls from Isaiah a to Temple scroll to the Genesis, all of the original scrolls found in cave 1. I don’t think there’s any doubt of the authenticity of them. If they were found in the caves they say they were they’re so inaccessible and they were blocked; it would just be impossible for someone to carry out this kind of a massive forgery of things. So I would say those we don’t have as much question about.
