Prophecy Alert™:
What the Dead Sea Scrolls can tell us about the next 100 days!

Publication: Sun
Date: 12 Dec. 2011
For those of you keeping score at home, the Dead Sea Scrolls are re-discovered texts, most of the them of Old Testament books, probably written in the centuries just before the birth of Christ.  I haven't seen anyone serious say they are prophetic, but that has never stopped the Sun before.  They give us a few tidbits of 100 prophecies that are supposed to come true in the next 100 days, so let's call that March 10 of next year.
  • Miracle turnaround in the economy
  • Another sex scandal in the election
Let it be noted that the drop in unemployment from 9.0% to 8.6% happened after these prophecies were published, so that was pretty good news.  I'm gonna get all arbitrary and say unemployment under 8.0% is good news and 7.5% or under would constitute a miracle.
As for another sex scandal, if Cain, Perry and Gingrich stay in the race, the odds of that one are pretty good as well. I'm again going to be arbitrary and say Ginger White came forward before this hit the stands, so any sex scandal has to be after her.

I'll report back on March 10.

It's always amazed me how much concern the authors of these ancient texts had for a nation yet to be established in a continent they didn't know existed. The twentieth and twenty-first centuries meant much more to these Sages, also. Too.

You would know better than I, Padre, since your scholarship of tabloid eschatology predates mine by decades and is far more detailed. Is it a popular belief that the Dead Sea Scrolls are prophecy? Was it believed to be the case back when they were discovered in the 1940s and 1950s?

Enquiring minds want to know.
