About this product
- DescriptionIn March 2011, The Sunday Times ran an article on the discovery of a mysterious cache of palm-sized, ring-bound books made of engraved lead plates that appeared to have a connection with the Kabbalah. Several experts stepped forward to claim the lead codices to be forgeries. Almost from the beginning, Egyptologist David Elkington and his wife Jennifer were brought in as religious experts to help the book's owner understand their message better. At the same time, the books were quickly becoming an international hot potato as the Israelis and Jordanians began a very public dispute over the location of the site where they were discovered. Convinced that the codices were t fakes, but in all likelihood the earliest Christian documents ever found, the Elkingtons put their reputations on the line as they raced to authenticate the find amidst an array of vested interests which sought to suppress them. Thought to be the earliest Christian writings ever discovered, the Lead Codices can be dated to 30-40 AD - prior to the New Testament and after the Death of Jesus.
