Rarely segment of Dead Sea Scrolls to be displayed for Israel's 60th

A rarely displayed segment of the Dead Sea Scrolls are part of an exhibition for US President George W. Bush and other dignitaries attending Israel's 60th anniversary celebrations next month.

 

The ancient manuscripts date back over 2,000 years and contain almost the full text of the Jewish Bible, as well as early Christian texts. The segment on display will be from Psalm 133. It reads: ''Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.'' (AP)
