“Jerusalem Jones” and the Dead Sea Scrolls with Ken Hanson, Ph.D.
Thursday, March 21
A scholar of Hebrew language and literature, history of biblical lands, Jewish and early Christian culture – and a natural storyteller, Ken Hanson, also known as “Jerusalem Jones,” takes you on an engaging journey to uncover the secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Hanson set out on an odyssey to Jerusalem to find these mysterious ancient parchments written by an unknown Judean sect. Studied by only a select few, the scrolls revealed the life and hopes of an ancient group of people.
While living in Jerusalem, Hanson studied Hebrew and earned his master’s degree in International/Inter-Cultural Communications. He also worked for a TV station in Southern Lebanon and served as the company liaison with the Israeli Army while living in Galilee. Hanson has appeared on syndicated radio and national television including The History Channel.
