Biggest Find Since Dead Sea Scrolls?
Could this be the biggest find since the Dead Sea Scrolls? 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. – UK Daily Mail
Dominant Social Theme: This is really interesting, even if it's not entirely clear what's going on.
Free-Market Analysis: Here at the Daily Bell we mostly cover the workings of the top elites that are trying to build world government. Most of what we discuss has some connection to this larger theme.
And we discuss the drive to world government within the context of dominant social themes – the fear- (and greed-) based promotions that drive Western middle classes to give up power and wealth to globalist facilities.
Religion is surely such a dominant social theme, or at least organized religion on a large scale. So it seems to us.
Yet we do not focus a lot on religion as an elite manipulation.
• Spirituality and religion are endlessly intermingled; each person's faith and belief surely has personal elements not subject to larger manipulations.
• It is difficult to know where the organized themes of religion leave off and one's personal spirituality commences. Attack one and you may attack another by mistake.
• All the major religions inherently are repositories of human wisdom and history intermingled with other thematic elements of elite control.
• We are never sure what parts of a religious experience are merely manipulative and what parts are credibly profound.
We wish we could take religious texts literally, at their word, but there is so much evidence of historical manipulation of major religions that we simply cannot.
As trackers of elite memes we do follow various obvious elite manipulations of religious configurations. Some we grow more sure of over time; some not so much.
We have definitely noticed a surge of religious reporting in the past decade as the elites struggle to ward off what we call the Internet Reformation – while attempting to further expand their goal of world government.
The top dynastic families that control the world's central banks are surely using religion in numerous ways.
But we are not sure how this new discovery fits into it. It surely is a fascinating one. Here's more from the article above:
The metal tablets could change our understanding of the Bible ... On pages not much bigger than a credit card, are images, symbols and words that appear to refer to the Messiah and, possibly even, to the Crucifixion and Resurrection.
Adding to the intrigue, many of the books are sealed, prompting academics to speculate they are actually the lost collection of codices mentioned in the Bible's Book Of Revelation.
The Dead Sea Scrolls, counted among the most important archaeological finds of the modern era, were discovered in a cave (pictured) by a Bedouin shepherd in the West Bank.
The scrolls consist of 30,000 separate fragments making up 900 manuscripts of biblical texts and religious writings from the time of Jesus.
The fragile parchment and papyrus fragments have been the subject of intense study for more than half a century by an international team of scholars who are still trying to understand the significance of some 30 per cent of the texts which are not included in the Bible or any other previously known religious writings.
The scrolls include the earliest known copy of the Ten Commandments, an almost complete Book of Isaiah and many of the Psalms.
If the dating is verified, the books would be among the earliest Christian documents, predating the writings of St Paul.
The prospect that they could contain contemporary accounts of the final years of Jesus's life has excited scholars – although their enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that experts have previously been fooled by sophisticated fakes.
