The Biggest Find Since The Dead Sea Scrolls?

"70 Seventy metal books found in cave in Jordan could change our view of Biblical history"
For scholars of faith and history, it is a treasure trove too precious for price. This ancient collection of 70 tiny books, their lead pages bound with wire, could unlock some of the secrets of the earliest days of Christianity.Academics are divided as to their authenticity but say that if verified, they could prove as pivotal as the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947.
Here is the Fox News report on this too. I don't know what to think of this yet, I still remember that blasphemous ossuary box: "The Lost Tomb of Jesus", they made a big deal of several years ago which definitely was a giant hoax.

I think it is ridiculous. They don't even know what the pages say, yet are inferring everything under the sun. For sure, there was no secret tradition that Jesus passed on to the disciples. He himself said that he did and apoke nothing in secret. What code does the Book of Revelation need when the symbols of prophecy are explained by the prophecies themselves and well enough for a child to understand. Whoever is trying to make this a revolutionary Christian document that would change the historical understanding of Christianity is a hater of Christianity with intent is to deceive. And there have always been a world full of those starting even before the Apostles were gone.

And this is the first time I've heard of any book being written on metal in those times. If the book is not a fraud (which I currently suspect it is), it gives itself away as being gnostic to the core. But then, that's what we are seeing a revival of even in the churches today. Hmm. Should raise a big red flag for all true Christians. Those in the churches that have fallen for the current popularity of gnostic mysticism will grab onto this as further 'early' proof that they're on the right road. (There are alrady a ton of others of the same general ilk from that era). I wouldn't be surprised if this 'book' was intended to do just that.

I don't trust it, not at all so we are in aggreement. I think the Dead Sea Scrolls could have been a scam of some sort though I am not well versed on them. You are right Jesus said He spoke nothing in Secret. The nonsense about this book "intrepreting revelation" also goes against the biblical edit, NOT to add to scripture.

18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Check this picture out, they are claiming this book has the "seven seals"

Scripture always answers our questions.

They think they can break these seals? LOL, this book, a bolt cutter could do it, by any human. Pay attention to 5:3

This is what scripture says about the real 7 seals..
Rev 5:1 ¶ And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

Rev 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

Rev 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

I read somewhere online that making "new archeological discoveries" was a part of the NWO disinformation plan.

I wouldn't doubt it. Now I wouldn't put anything past them. Sometimes I think of the nutty stuff they could come up with a la Dan Brown.
