Jerusalem, Israel, April 18, 2008—Tourists examine pieces of the Dead Sea scrolls displayed at the Shrine of the Book, a wing of the Israel Museum.

The museum will put one of the most important scrolls—part of the text of the Bible's Book of Isaiah—on rare display starting this week.

The museum decided to put the scroll back on show for three months for Israel's 60th anniversary celebration, according to the Associated Press.
