Summary, etc.: Gaining exclusive access to the recent investigation and restoration of the Dead Sea Scrolls, this compelling program reveals the amazing secrets behind these 2000-year-old texts from the Judean desert. It shows how science has not only proved their authenticity, but also established their authorship and geographic origins. The program uses these findings to raise some tantalizing questions. For example, had some of the Essenes, the Christian-like sect that apparently wrote the scrolls, met Jesus Christ before they abandoned Jerusalem for the desert? This video unfolds like a great real-life mystery, intriguing you with its theories, fascinating you with its truths, and providing you with new ways of looking at Judaism and early Christianity.
