Modern Scholarship Claims that the Shapira Scroll Is Actually the Oldest-Known Copy of the Hebrew Scriptures (c. 957 B.C.E.)

It was presented by Moses Shapira in 1883 as an ancient Biblical artifact and was the focus of a major archaeological controversy. Modern scholars are saying that it is 700 years older than the oldest Dead Sea Scrolls that date to about 250 B.C.E.
