FACT

These are scrolls that have been discovered along with thousands of others and this combination of scrolls (and pieces of scrolls) are what make up the bible.

Here is a quote from an article found at:
http://www.equip.org/free/DB011.htm

Hope this helps!

"We have more than 14,000 manuscripts and fragments of the Old Testament of three main types: (a) approximately 10,000 from the Cairo Geniza (storeroom) find of 1897, dating back as far as about AD. 800; (b) about 190 from the Dead Sea Scrolls find of 1947-1955, the oldest dating back to 250-200 B.C.; and (c) at least 4,314 assorted other copies. The short time between the original Old Testament manuscripts (completed around 400 B.C.) and the first extensive copies (about 250 B.C.) coupled with the more than 14,000 copies that have been discovered ensures the trustworthiness of the Old Testament text. The earliest quoted verses (Num. 6:24-26) date from 800-700 B.C. "

In Christ,

Lee
