Two of the world’s greatest archeological finds, The Gabriel Revelation Stone often called the Stone Scroll, and a facsimile of the Scroll of Isaiah, the only almost complete version of any biblical book among the Dead Sea Scrolls, went on display in Hong Kong and China for the first time, on loan from the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
