I love being a mentor! - a Scholar Mentor!

Dr. Hal A. Cauthron, Chair of the School of Theology and Ministry announced an exceptional opportunity for select students at SNU in work with a not-yet-published Dead Sea Scroll (DSS). 

Discovered in the Judean Desert not far from Jerusalem, the Dead Sea Scrolls are some of our oldest copies of the Bible. Their discovery, translation and examination have significantly shaped what we know about Judaism just before the time of Jesus. While most of the scrolls have been researched and published by Biblical Scholars, a few portions have yet to be fully examined. Students who have the ability to work on this DSS are working with SNU Professor, Dr. Marty Alan Michelson in connection with the Green Scholars Initiative. This unique opportunity for SNU students emerged in conjunction with the Green Scholars Initiative when Executive Director Dr. Jerry Pattengale discovered Dr. Michelson’s work. This initiative is the research arm of the Green Collection, over 40,000 Bible artifacts and Biblical texts made available by the owners of Hobby Lobby.
