An Israeli Museum has for the first time in history featured a 2,000-year-old copy of the Ten Commandments dated between the years 30 B.C. and 1 B.C. The scroll was discovered along with the other Dead Sea Scrolls in the mid-20th century in Khirbet Qumran, an archaeological site near the shores of the Dead Sea where the oldest known versions of the Hebrew Bible was also discovered.

Marking the museum?s 50th anniversary and because of the delicate state of the parchment document, the scroll will be shown for about four weeks, after which the museum will return it to a more protected environment and display a duplicate copy.
