The Museum of the Bible on Monday said it was removing five Dead Sea Scroll fragments from display after tests found they were forgeries. Third-party analysis performed by a German-based company found five of the museum’s 16 fragments showed “characteristics inconsistent with ancient origin,” according to a statement by the museum. Earlier studies raised questions about the fragments’ authenticity.
