The Dead Sea Scrolls: What they say to people of African Decent and the Black Church, In Particular?

Since late spring, the Dead Sea Scrolls have been on exhibit in the Los Angeles area. Many churches and other groups have viewed these ancient finds (along with related archaeological discoveries) first hand. The exhibit here in Southern California has generated a new buzz among people of African descent, but what exactly do the scrolls say as relates to race, ethnicity and the role of women during this time, in general, and ethnic Blackness, in particular?

Besides answering questions about how the scrolls shed light on the Bible, the teachings of Jesus and the person of Jesus in relation to early and modern Christianity and Judaism, the Dead Sea Scrolls convey vital information regarding the symbol of ethnic Blackness and the place of Africa and African-oriented people within ancient Judaism and Christianity.
