Exam Overview



Greetings and felicitations.


We have gone through some of the lore of the Dead Sea Scrolls and sampled a few as well.  What of the acts and beliefs of the people of the Scrolls?  There are several ancient witnesses to the Essenes and the their sects, for there were several.  In this lesson we'll discover some.


If you haven't sent in your $25.00, please do so now.  This is a lot of work for me too, and the little I am asking is for supplies I need to produce this course.  Paypal or send a check to Jackson Snyder, 3495 1st St.  Vero Beach, FL 32968.  I know you will be blessed.


As for the exams - They are not meant to be hard, and you do not need to write a book.  Just answer the questions as best as you can.
