The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in November of 1946 by three Bedouin shepherds in a cave on the northwest shore of the Dead Sea some thirteen miles from Jerusalem. Since that time, in eleven caves found, there have been close to 870 scrolls recovered.

Some of these are texts included in the Bible, with several other religious texts that, for some reason,Dead sea cave were removed or never put in. The Book of Enoch is one that had been removed from the Christian Bible by the 4th Century. According to the Bible, Enoch was a very important figure but is only mentioned briefly. Why has it been buried over the years?
