The Dead Sea Scrolls
were discovered between 1947 and 1956. They were hidden in eleven caves near Qumran on the shores of the Dead Sea. The scholars have identified  almost 870 separate scrolls. Majority are written in Hebrew and some in Aramaic. The scrolls contain previously unknown stories of Noah  Enoch and Abraham as well as not found in the Bible prophecies by Ezekiel, Jeremiah and Daniel. It is speculated that the scrolls most likely were written by Essenes, the Messianic Jewish sect, between 200 B.C. and 68 C.E.
