Reading a Scroll Without Opening It

An amazing technological advancement was announced today.  Researchers found that they could read a fragile Biblical scroll without opening it.  The technique is “virtual unwrapping,” which they describe as a 3D digital analysis of an X-ray scan.

Their discovery showed a section from the book of Leviticus that is identical to what is read today.  Fascinating stuff!
