The final five are the glorious mysteries: the resurrection (virtue of faith), the ascension (virtue of hope), the assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (devotion to Mary), the descent of the Holy Spirit (love of God), and the crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary (eternal happiness).
Five was the number of parts of the body, virtues, clerical degrees, vices and elements of light (ether, wind, water, fire, light).

The scroll known as 4QpaleoExod m is significant in that it witnesses to an expanded textual tradition that formed the foundation of the Samaritan Pentateuch.
Fourteen of the manuscripts were unearthed in five of the eleven caves in the vicinity of Qumran : one in cave1, one in cave 2, nine in cave 4, one in cave 6, and two in cave 11- while two were discovered in the ruins at Masada.
The circumstances surrounding this scroll’s discovery by the Bedouin in 1947, its transportation to the United Stated by the Metropolitan Samuel (head of the Syrian Orthodox Church), its clandestine purchase by the Israeli scholar Yigael Yadin, and its return to Israel in 1954 form a gripping tale.

 The Gemstone Scrolls
Like the other five arks, the An is also an electro-magnetic capacitor, but far more advanced than modern scientists are speculating, for these arks have the ability (when connected to a quill-scroll) to interface the electro-magnetic currents of the earth with the human DNA – and further, specific points or crystalline fields in that DNA.
The five lesser arks listed above are now dispersed around the world, and are all connected to the An, that acts as a main terminal for the entire 'unit' of arks.

 Publishing's new sensation: Dead Sea Scrolls
The scrolls are believed to have been written by a Jewish sect sometime between 200BC and early in the 1st century AD, and the first were rediscovered in a cave by a shepherd boy in 1947.
Now the completion of the scrolls' publication coincides with an admission by the Vatican that it is to revise parts of the Bible accordingly, a task likely to take five years.
It was not only the religious significance of the work that the scrolls questioned but also their historical truth, for they revealed that the writers would have coloured their accounts with their prejudices too.

They are five relatively short biblical books that are grouped together and known collectively in the Jewish tradition as "The Five Scrolls" (Hebrew: Hamesh Megillot or Chamesh Megillos).
All five of these megillot ("scrolls") are traditionally read publicly in the synagogue over the course of the year in many Jewish communities.

 The Five Megilloth
These five scrolls form a constituent part of the Hagiographa, and in the most ancient manuscripts, as well as in the early printed editions, are given in the following order.
Five Scriptures are pointed out as thus commencing, but to these we may add the fact that though events associated with sadness are to be related, yet they are in each case followed by other events which end in blessing.
Genesis 14:1 begins with the war between the four kings and the five, and the troubles of Lot; but ends in the blessing of Abraham by the priest of the Most High God.

 The Dead Sea Scrolls
The source of this excitement is what these Dead Sea Scrolls reveal about the history of the Second Temple period (520 B.C.E.-70 C.E.), particularly from the second century B.C.E. until the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 C.E.-a time of crucial developments in the crystallization of the monotheistic religions.
Professor Sukenik, after initially defining the time span of the scrolls as the Second Temple period, recognized their special significance and advocated the now widely accepted theory that they were remnants of the library of the Essenes.
The scrolls are viewed as an eclectic collection, neither necessarily inscribed in the Dead Sea area nor sectarian in nature, perhaps even remains of the library of the Temple in Jerusalem.

 Secrets From the Desert - The Discovery at Qumran
What continues to make the Dead Sea Scrolls so momentous and so controversial is their absolute uniqueness, not only as an archaeological discovery but as an unmediated literary link to a profoundly important time and place in history.
The Roman legions burned and leveled Qumran in 68 A.D. How the long-forgotten scrolls eventually found their way out of their dark desert depository to be studied by a new generation of devoted readers is a fascinating story, and one that still deserves to be told.

 Bible Summary - THE SONG OF SOLOMON
Last of the 5 poetical books of the OT in the English canon, and one of the Megilloth, or Five Scrolls, of the Hebrew canon.
The Five Scrolls constitute the 2nd section of the Ketubim, or Hagiographa, the 3rd division of the Hebrew canon.
The Hebrew title, Shir Hashshirim, "the song of songs" (Song 1:1), may mean the greatest or sweetest of all songs in the same way that "King of kings" means "supreme king." The name Canticles, sometimes given to the book, is derived from the title in the Latin Vulgate, Canticum Canticorum.

 Sefer Torah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The text of the Torah is also commonly printed (for non-ritual functions) as a (non-scroll) book, known as a Humash ("five", for the five books of Moses), often accompanied by commentaries or translations.
According to the Talmud (the oral law of the Jewish People), all scrolls must also be written on gevil parchment that is treated with salt, flour and m'afatsim (a residual of wasp enzyme and tree bark) in order to be valid.
During cantillation, following the often dense text is aided by a yad ("hand"), a metal or wooden hand-shaped pointer that protects the scrolls by avoiding unnecessary contact of the skin with the parchment.

 Straight Dope Staff Report: Who wrote the Bible? (Part 1)
The five scrolls or books of the Pentateuch tell the history of the Israelites from the creation of the universe, through the exodus from Egypt and the revelation at Mount Sinai to their entry into the Promised Land.
Mosaic authorship would mean the five books were written around 1280 to 1250 BC, the most commonly accepted range of dates for the exodus from Egypt, give or take 30 years.

 Discoveries by the Dead Sea
Recent findings are forcing archaeologists and historians to revise earlier theories that Qumran served as a "scriptorium" (a large writing room with benches) and communal center for the sectarians such as the Essenes.
One of the control samples -- a sample of the Book of Isaiah scroll from Qumran Cave 1 -- previously had been radiocarbon age dated at ETH-Zurich in 1990-91, and its identity, too, was unknown to the UA scientists during their tests.
Texts similar to the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in the mountaintop fortress of Masada, most likely brought in by refugees fleeing Jerusalem during the Jewish War (66 C.E. to 70 C.E.).

Like this scroll or not, and I’d advise anyone who reads it to heed the warnings placed upon it by the authors, it has an engaging plot, the harsh realities of the bard and warriors relationship, and enough emotion to make even the toughest reader flinch.
The Xena and Gabrielle XXX Scrolls is a series of writings which cover the same issues from both the Warrior Princess and her Bard's point of view.
