Dead Sea Scroll, Pontius Pilate Stone on Tour

Thanks to Targuman, I noticed NPR is running an article about a touring exhibit currently in Chicago which includes a Dead Sea Scroll, the ‘Pontius Pilate’ dedicatory stone (literal proof of Pilate, literally in stone,) as well as ossuaries and other items.

What I love about this is the “bringing history alive” aspect, something I try to do in my own home (however with much less precious historical items.) This would be quite an exhibit to see, I can only hope for a west coast tour! The NPR website has some nice pictures with both audio and text.
