    Mysterious Dead Sea Scroll deciphered in Israel

    Sixty tiny fragments were pieced together over a period of a year, identifying the name of a festival marking the changes between seasons.

    It also revealed a second scribe corrected mistakes made by the author.
    These included festivals of New Wheat, New Wine and and New Oil, which were related to the Jewish festival of Shavuot.

    The researchers also discovered the name used by the sect for a festival observed four times a year that marked the transition between the seasons - Tekufah. The same word in modern-day Hebrew means "period".

    So... Ancient Hebrews only had 4 periods a year. Sounds peaceful.

    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.
