Since my previous post about Qumran Cave 12, a few other noteworthy articles have cropped up, including on:
- FoxNews (HT: Jordan Sekulow via Craig Evans),
- NPR (HT: Andreas Köstenberger), and
- Times of Israel (HT: Douglas Estes).
Much of what is in these articles about the new find is also in other reports. But, the Times piece confirms that
Experts at the Dead Sea Scroll Laboratories in Jerusalem … plan to carry out multispectral imaging of the [apparently blank parchment fragment] to reveal any ink invisible to the naked eye.
Such plans weren’t entirely clear from what I’d seen thus far, though it would seem to be a logical step for the sake of thoroughness. Kudos to Jim Davila for his correct prior speculation about how to interpret some of the previous and seemingly more ambiguous comments touching these plans.
