Editorial Reviews

It has been over 50 years since the first of the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in the caves in the Judean desert near Wadi Qumram in the Holy Land. This documentary, which traces the history of the journey from that earth-shattering discovery to today, is part of A&E's "Ancient Mysteries: New investigations of the unsolved. The video traces historically how the various scrolls were located, disbursed and brought back together for all scholars to study and share their interpretations and translations. I recommend this for congregational libraries needing a balanced look at this 20th century revelation of Bible related study in their collections.

- Very informative

This video may not be filmed with the latest heart pounding techniques, but the information is interesting and well researched. I found that the struggle among the powers that be, the scholars, and religious leaders very intriguing. In fact, my research has led me before watching this film to inquire beyond what modern conservative scholars and teachers have concluded about the "pseudo" book called the Book of Enoch 1. When biblical authors like Jude the brother of Jesus directly quote a book that modern scholars claim was written by a fake someone who claimed to be Enoch, the seventh from Adam, but really was just a 3rd century BC Jew, then some important implications and questions begin to arise. Add to that the hundreds of allusions in the New Testament that are undeniably related to the teachings of this "pseudo" book that predated Christ and the Apostles, and the Enigma gets deeper. My faith in the Scriptures can never waver. It's the Christian consensus that comes under question in this well made, revealing film. I recommend it.
