The Psalmist declared the necessity to store the Word of God in a safe place: the mind. This was necessary because even stone tablets can break and be scattered. The early use of papyrus (ancient paper) made the more permanent clay tablets obsolete for everyday use. Such a find is rare because of the fragile nature of papyrus. As attractive as it might be to dream of finding something from the pen of an Apostle, the nature of the medium makes this .practically impossible.

Experts and Bias
The secular news magazine Newsweek presents coverage of what secular experts claim may be fake documents among the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls.

Under the divine influence of God, Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible in the Old Testament, commonly called the Pentateuch and historically known as the Torah. These books are: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.
Moses was the third child of Amram and his wife Jochebed, both of the tribe of Levi in Egypt, after the Israelites had become enslaved by the Egyptians, because Egyptian government feared the growing Hebrew population would eventually overtake them.The hard labor, however, had not kept the Hebrew population from growing rapidly. This lead to the Egyptian government ordering all newborn Hebrew males to be drowned in the Nile.
