Scrolling

In the computer age, most of us read by "scrolling" through the information we're seeing.
The fact is “scrolling” has been around for centuries!

The Bible says that in Nazareth, Jesus took the scroll of the prophet Isaiah, unrolled it and read what was written. And when he finished, he rolled the scroll back up!
Having a Bible in Jesus’s time would have meant literally an armful of scrolls, and having one the length of Isaiah would have been unusual.
Likely, Nazareth had an Isaiah scroll in its synagogue, and perhaps a Torah scroll that Jesus may have read from.
One of the most important discoveries in the 20th century was the Dead Sea Scrolls—scores of biblical and religious texts used by Jews around the first century BC—a preserved “scrolling” of the Bible!
