How can we learn about people that lived long ago?
You have probably been to a museum where old things are kept. We can see them and learn the history of the people who used them long ago.
In school you have read history books that tell the true stories of people long ago.
The Bible is a history book too. In it is written the true stories of people that lived in real places long ago. It is an extra special book, or course, because it contains God's words to us, to teach us and to encourage us!
God told his ancient prophets to write down His words. Since paper had not yet been invented, the prophets wrote on heavy slabs of clay. Later they wrote on animal skins that could be rolled up into a scroll.
Not too long ago, someone found some old scrolls way up high in a cave on a mountain side. Scientists studied them and found that they were over 2000 years old. They had parts of the Bible written on them!
