According to Eibert Tigchelaar, a theologian from Groningen, at least thirty fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls are being offered for sale at the moment. He was shown pictures during his last visit to Israel in August.
He says that all items belong to the descendants of antique dealer Kahlil Iskander Shahin Kando who in the past century amassed a fortune from the sales of the Dead Sea Scrolls. His family commissioned renowned scientist Emile Puech from the Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Française, an authoritative research institute in Jerusalem, to write a concise description of every fragment. Tigchelaar states that as far as their content is concerned the fragments are hardly revolutionary. "But the idea that there are more items out there is interesting."
I wonder if anything exceedingly significant will turn up, or even if we'll ever get our hands on all the dead sea scrolls.
