Author, speaker, researcher and editor of the Dead Sea Scrolls, I devote my work to educating the public about the Bible, religion and the origins of Judaism and Christianity.  Through a variety of media and educational settings, I am available to share a scholarly but accessible view on the background to the biblical text, origins of Israelite and Western religions, as well as to the meaning and importance of the Dead Sea Scrolls for us today.
