Early Christian Texts Discovered in Jordan

In a startling discovery, over 70 small books of ancient Christian writing has been unearthed near Jordan, in a find similar to that of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947, and the Nag Hammadi codices in upper Egypt in 1945. Scholars suspect that the new discoveries may have an equal amount, even more to offer to the world’s understanding of how early Christianity grew than those earlier discoveries, which tremendously shook the foundations of what we assumed to be the accepted truth of the origins of Christianity, revealing a deep, magical, Gnostic tradition of direct contact with the divine that completely predates—and was suppressed—by the early mainstream Church.

Shockingly, the newly discovered books actually appear to have been written a few decades after the crucifixion—and may yet prove to be the most primary source we have going.

Sky News reports:

A mini library of 70 little books has been discovered in Jordan, with experts saying they may be thousands of years old and may hold as much significance as the Dead Sea Scrolls. According to the BBC, the small books (about the size of a credit card) were found in a cave after floods.

Reports say metallurgical tests suggest the books could have been around since the first century AD. A carbon dating test on piece of leather found with them suggested it was 2000 years old.

Jordan’s Department of Antiquities director, Ziad al-Saad, told BBC the books might have been made a few decades after Jesus’ crucifixion. ‘They will really match, and perhaps be more significant than, the Dead Sea Scrolls,’ he said. Israeli archaeological sources have reportedly dismissed the discovery as a hoax and claim the books are forgeries.

What do you think—are the new books legitimate? What might they tell us about the early Christians? And should Dan Brown be notified?

    When I read the Dead Sea Scrolls, 20 years ago, I realized and felt there was so much more out there that we did not know about-I felt there would be more finds, in later days. I so believe this. I also feel we will find more in the future. Once again, however, I believe it all has power-Every faith has power.
    Treat people the way you want to be treated, have a good heart and know that no matter what your faith is, you are a good person and soul! However, I have been blown away by some of the Old and New Testament stories and miracles. Huggies, Blessings and much love-Keep the faith 🙂
