The hi-tech cameras have rendered visible sections of parchment that were previously indecipherable. Scientists were stunned at the accuracy that has been preserved. God made sure that His Word could be trusted! Photos of the actual scrolls can be found here.

He said he will keep travelling and telling others about the Gospel for as long as God enables him to.
