Fifty years ago this year, the first translations were made of the Dead Sea Scrolls, which have contributed massively to the understanding of the Bible and Christian teachings.

The translations were done by a man who has gone on to be called the most important Jesus historian ever, Geza Vermes.

The BBC's John McCarthy meets Vermes, who has devoted his career to the historical examination of the Bible and the life of Jesus.
