Josh McDowell in his presentation told us that it is important for us to know about the Torah, how the sacred text was written, what objects and materials were used.
The guests shared amazing facts, incredible discoveries, and research experience in the study of sacred texts. “We love God’s word very much!” – they said. “For us, the Torah scroll embodies the work, love, knowledge and craft of generations of scribes who painstakingly kept the scriptures so that future generations not only knew their content, but also could see the beauty of God’s word in their beautiful handwritten lines.”
The Torah scroll is an important addition to understanding of the language and history of the Old Testament.
