No. The Dead Sea Scrolls in themselves do not prove The Bible to be incorrect. They do allow us to confirm the accuracy of some of the earliest biblical texts that we already knew of. The Scrolls contain a pre-Christian copy of the Book of Isaiah. This confirms that the Septuagint, an early Greek translation of the Bible that Matthew had relied on to 'prove' that Isaiah had prophesied that Jesus was born of a virgin, did contain a mistranslation. The early Christians claimed that the Jews had altered their version of the Book of Isaiah so as to discredit the Gospel According to St. Matthew. We now have evidence that this was not the case and that there was no such prophecy.
