The Dead Sea Scrolls and Apostolic Succession


The Dead Sea Scrolls have been called “the greatest archeological find of the twentieth century.” Yet, controversy and confusion continue to swirl around these ancient writings.

In this clip from Dr. Bergsma’s The Jewish Roots of Jesus and the Church: Light from the Dead Sea Scrolls, he takes up the question of apostolic succession. Do we find evidence for apostolic succession in the Bible and the early Church? Dr. Bergsma tackles this question that continues to be a subject of debate between Christians by turning to various passages from the Bible and the early Church.
