When a Roman Catholic scholar involved in the Dead Sea Scrolls Project discovers a heretical message contained in one of the Scrolls he hides it. Decades later, a prominent archeologist discovers reference to the scroll in an archeological dig. This discovery spurs the world religions into a dangerous game of cat and mouse, in which all who seek the hidden scroll are mysteriously silenced, leaving the salvation of humankind to a father and son, who must either find the hidden scroll … or die trying.

The Dead Sea Scrolls: Biblical Significance


The Ten Commandments Scroll is the oldest known text of the Ten Commandments on parchment, as well as the most complete and the best preserved. The Nash Papyrus, which is in the Cambridge University Library, is less complete, is in fragments, and dates to 150-100 BCE. They are the only surviving texts of the Ten Commandments dating from before Christ. The next earliest manuscript of the Commandments dates back to around 1000 AD, a 1,000-year gap that highlights how fragile and perishable texts on parchment or papyrus are.
