Scrolls 2000 Years Old Prove the Bible

Dr. Patton is the staff Geologist for the Qumran Plateu excavation in Israel, the site that produced the Dead Sea Scrolls some 2,000 years ago. These scrolls, perhaps the most significant archeological discovery of all time, have changed the way we view the Bible.

Many have been led to believe that the original text of the Bible has deteriorated over years of copying and recopying. The Dead Sea Schrolls provide a test of that hypothesis, allowing us to compare modern versions with recently discovered manuscripts written over 2,000 years ago.

Dr. Patton will take you to the same scene of the original caves where the scrolls were discovered with one of the Bedouins who made the discovery. This is a fascinating story with eternal implications.

Dr. Patton has a broad educational background; four years at Florida College, Temple Terrace, FL (Bible); two years at Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, TN (Geology); two years at Indiana Univ./Purdue Univ., Indianapolis, IN (Geology); two years, Pacific School of Graduate Studies. He has worked as Geologist in US, Canada, Australia, England, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Cambodia, Israel, and Jordan. Dr. Patton has participated in dinosaur excavations in Colorado, Texas, Utah, Wyoming and Canada. He is credited with excavating the longest consecutive dinosaur trail in North America, totaling 157 tracks, extending over 500 feet. He is a member of the Geological Society of America and was a speaker at their 1997 annual convention. Dr. Patton lectures at universities across the United States. He has conducted up to twelve Creation/Evolution Seminaries a year for twenty five years. He has participated in numerous public debates on creation/evolution including radio and TV debates. He has testified three times before Texas State Textbook Committee, Austin, TX. Presently, Dr. Patton is consulting geologist & partner in Mazada Corporation, Dallas, TX. He is a staff geologist of the Creation Evidence Museum, Glen Rose, TX, staff geologist for the Qumran Plateau excavation in Israel, an area supervisor at the City of David excavation in Jerusalem and chairman of the Metroplex Institute of Origon Science. He preaches for the Melrose church of Christ in Richardson, Texas.

Self-evidently if Peter the Apostle wrote this epistle then it must have been written prior to his death in c 6567AD. The letter refers to the Pauline epistles and so must post-date them, regardless of authorship, thus a date before 60 is not probable.

Many scholars generally consider the epistle to be written between c 100150AD[5]

None of the early Fathers definitely quoted 2 Peter and it was not even mentioned in the second century.

Apostle Peter did not write 2nd Peter it is not inspired

I know your gone, but Im sure you check in occasionally. Something i just learned today and it isn't widely known and i think you can see why. In Cave 7 at Qumran they found fragments of New Testament texts. Now Qumran was completely wiped out by 68 AD by the Roman 10th Legion. And they camped there for 2 years. So every thing found in the caves are before 68 AD. And guess what they found? A fragment of 2 Peter. That's right, so that places it being written well before 68 ad in order for it to be disseminated. And NO ONE disputes the ages of the documents found at Qumran, so that places 2 Peter well within his lifetime.

At least 18 passages are found in the Dead Sea Scrolls for the New Testament and are a MUST before 68 AD because the Essene community at that location were wiped by that time. The passages are from Mark, Acts, Romans, 1 Timothy, 2 Peter and James. Not enough time for legend to develop or he said, she said.

How can these scholars say that 2 Peter was written after 100AD?? That's absurd.

The New Testament was written 49AD to 95AD which is 46 years. Revelation was written 95 AD. 46 is the number of chromosomes in the human body. I just thought i would throw that one in there too.
