The Copper Scroll

The Copper Scroll (3Q15)

“In the fortress which is in the Vale of Achor, forty cubits under the steps entering to the east: a money chest and it [sic] contents, of a weight of seventeen talents.” So begins the first column of the Copper Scroll, one of the most intriguing, and baffling, scrolls to be found among the collection known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. Sounding like something out of an Indiana Jones movie, the text of the Copper Scroll (3Q15) describes vast amounts of buried treasure.

A Section of the Copper Scroll

I transliterated the Greek characters on Megillat HaNechoshet into Hebrew. The characters in Hebrew reveal a message for Sukkot: Ken Chag Hen Ta’ah Day Toph Sook – Yes, (Establish it) Their Festival in Booths/Rooms – It is Enough (to play on) Tambourines (for) Anointing!!!
