Episode: “Shadows from the Past”
A chamber of tombs, near the Garden Tomb but dated to the time of the First Temple, help us understand the burial customs of that day. We visit the Qumran cave where the first Dead Sea Scroll was found.
Series: “The Stones Cry Out (2012)”
In recent decades, many marvelous, new archaeological discoveries have greatly illuminated and validated the biblical record. In order to film the archaeological sites and interview the experts, Zola Levitt, Thomas McCall, and the production crew of Zola Levitt Presents journeyed to Israel and Jordan. We found that, just as our Lord said about this remarkable Land, indeed The Stones Cry Out. (Luke 19:40) Myles and Katharine Weiss host this encore presentation, examining the archaeological discoveries that shed light on the Bible.

  • 00:57 UNEARTHING THE TREASURES
  • 01:00 THAT GOD'S ORDAINED US
  • 01:01 TO FIND IN THIS TIME.
  • 01:03 Myles: YES, REALLY,
  • 01:04 ARCHAEOLOGY VERIFYING THE TRUTH
  • 01:05 OF THE BIBLE.
  • 01:06 AND, IN FACT, OUR RESOURCE
  • 01:07 THIS WEEK IS THIS VERY SERIES,
  • 01:10 THE ORIGINAL SERIES,
  • 01:11 "THE STONES CRY OUT."
  • 01:12 WE'LL HEAR MORE ABOUT THAT
  • 01:13 LATER IN THE PROGRAM.
  • 01:15 THIS PROGRAM IS GOING TO TALK
  • 01:16 ABOUT THE FIRST TEMPLE,
  • 01:18 GO BACK THAT FAR AND ESTABLISH
  • 01:20 THE JEWISH PRESENCE IN THE LAND.
  • 01:22 SO LET'S GO ON LOCATION
  • 01:23 RIGHT NOW
  • 01:24 AS DR. TOM McCALL INTERVIEWS
  • 01:26 ARCHAEOLOGIST GABRIEL BARKAY.
  • 01:31 Tom: MOST OF US ARE FAMILIAR
  • 01:32 WITH THIS TOMB, REFERRED TO
  • 01:33 AS THE "GARDEN TOMB."
  • 01:35 IT WAS DISCOVERED
  • 01:36 BY CHARLES GORDON IN 1883.
  • 01:40 WHAT FEW PEOPLE HAVE SEEN,
  • 01:41 HOWEVER,
  • 01:42 LIES JUST 100 YARDS AWAY.
  • 01:45 THIS MAGNIFICENT BURIAL CAVE
  • 01:47 IS CARVED 43 FEET DEEP
  • 01:49 INTO THE BEDROCK
  • 01:51 OF A DOMINICAN MONASTERY.
  • 01:53 ACCORDING TO ARCHAEOLOGIST
  • 01:54 GABI BARKAY, DATES TO THE TIME
  • 01:57 OF THE 1st TEMPLE.
  • 02:00 Gabi: TOMBS IN GENERAL
  • 02:01 AND BURIAL CAVES, THEY GIVE US,
  • 02:05 I THINK, THE BEST REFLECTION
  • 02:07 OF SOCIETY IN ANTIQUITY,
  • 02:09 AND THEY GIVE US A VARIETY
  • 02:12 OF FIELDS OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 02:14 THEY TEACH US A LOT ABOUT
  • 02:16 DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF LIFE
  • 02:18 IN ANTIQUITY.
  • 02:19 FOR EXAMPLE, THIS CAVE
  • 02:21 IS LOCATED ABOUT HALF A MILE
  • 02:23 DISTANCE FROM THE CITY
  • 02:24 OF JERUSALEM.
  • 02:26 THE QUESTION IS WHY WAS IT
  • 02:27 PUSHED THAT FAR?
  • 02:28 WE CAN COME TO THE CONCLUSION
  • 02:30 THAT THERE WERE EXTRAMURAL
  • 02:32 SUBURBS FILLING IN THE GAP
  • 02:34 BETWEEN THE LOCATION OF
  • 02:35 THIS CAVE AND THE ANCIENT CORE
  • 02:39 OF THE CITY OF DAVID.
  • 02:41 THE BURIAL CUSTOMS HERE,
  • 02:42 THEY SHOW US THE IMPORTANCE
  • 02:44 OF FAMILY IN THE LIVES
  • 02:45 OF THESE PEOPLE.
  • 02:47 IT SHOWS US THEIR CONCEPT
  • 02:49 OF AFTERLIFE.
  • 02:50 EVEN SPIRITUAL ASPECTS ARE
  • 02:52 TAUGHT BY THE BURIAL CUSTOMS.
  • 02:56 WE CAN UNDERSTAND MUCH BETTER
  • 02:58 BIBLICAL VERSES WHEN WE STUDY
  • 03:02 THE BURIAL CUSTOMS AND WHEN WE
  • 03:03 STUDY THE ARCHITECTURE
  • 03:05 OF THESE CAVES.
  • 03:06 THIS BURIAL CAVE, FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 03:08 SERVED A NOBLE FAMILY
  • 03:09 OF JERUSALEM
  • 03:10 WHO LIVED MOST PROBABLY
  • 03:12 IN ONE OF THOSE EXTRAMURAL
  • 03:14 OUTER SUBURBS OF THE CITY.
  • 03:17 AND NO DOUBT THAT THEY WISHED
  • 03:20 TO COPY FOR THE DECEASED
  • 03:23 OF THE FAMILY THE CONDITIONS
  • 03:25 THAT THEY HAD IN THEIR LIFETIME.
  • 03:29 THIS ELABORATE BURIAL CAVE
  • 03:31 IS NOTHING BUT A COPY
  • 03:33 OF THE PALACE ARCHITECTURE,
  • 03:36 WHICH WAS THERE IN JERUSALEM.
  • 03:39 YOU CAN SEE IT VERY CLEARLY
  • 03:40 BY THE FACT THAT WE ARE STANDING
  • 03:42 HERE IN THE HALL, WHICH IS--
  • 03:45 THE HEIGHT OF THE CEILING
  • 03:46 IS TWICE OUR HEIGHT.
  • 03:49 OF COURSE, THE ORIGINAL DWELLERS
  • 03:51 OF THIS BURIAL CAVE, THEY
  • 03:52 ENTERED IN A HORIZONTAL POSITION
  • 03:55 BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 03:56 PRETTY MUCH DEAD.
  • 03:58 SO, THEY DON'T NEED THIS HEIGHT.
  • 04:00 THIS HEIGHT IS SOMETHING WHICH
  • 04:02 REFLECTS THE CUSTOMS OF BUILDING
  • 04:08 IN PALATIAL ARCHITECTURE.
  • 04:11 Zola: THIS FLOOR PLAN OF
  • 04:12 THE TOMB SHOWS HOW PALATIAL
  • 04:13 THE FAMILY HOME MUST HAVE BEEN.
  • 04:16 THE GRAND ENTRANCE CHAMBER
  • 04:17 IS SURROUNDED BY SMALLER
  • 04:18 BURIAL CHAMBERS DESIGNATED
  • 04:20 FOR VARIOUS FAMILY MEMBERS.
  • 04:23 ONE OF THE ROOMS
  • 04:24 TOWARD THE ENTRANCE WAS USED
  • 04:25 TO PREPARE THE DEAD FOR BURIAL.
  • 04:27 GABI TAKES US INTO
  • 04:28 ONE OF THE BURIAL CHAMBERS.
  • 04:32 Gabi: WE ARE HERE
  • 04:33 IN A TYPICAL BURIAL CHAMBER
  • 04:36 OF THE 1st TEMPLE PERIOD.
  • 04:37 THERE ARE SEVERAL OF THIS TYPE
  • 04:40 INSIDE THIS LARGE BURIAL COMPLEX
  • 04:45 IN WHICH WE ARE RIGHT NOW.
  • 04:48 THE CHAMBER IS SQUARE IN SHAPE
  • 04:52 AND IT IS SUBDIVIDED BY
  • 04:55 A CENTRAL PASSAGEWAY WHICH
  • 04:56 HAS STEPS AT ITS END AND
  • 04:58 IT IS FLANKED ON BOTH SIDES BY
  • 05:01 ELEVATED BURIAL BENCHES,
  • 05:04 ONE OF WHICH,
  • 05:05 UPON WHICH I SIT RIGHT NOW,
  • 05:07 IS AT THE BACK OF THE CHAMBER.
  • 05:09 SO WE HAVE
  • 05:10 THREE ELEVATED BENCHES.
  • 05:12 SIMULTANEOUSLY IN ANTIQUITY,
  • 05:14 THEY PUT FOUR BODIES
  • 05:16 STRETCHED ON THE BENCHES.
  • 05:19 HERE, YOU CAN SEE THE HEADREST
  • 05:21 OF ONE OF THE DECEASED.
  • 05:24 THIS IS MADE IN THE SHAPE
  • 05:25 OF A HORSESHOE
  • 05:27 WITH TWO ROUNDED CURLS
  • 05:30 AT BOTH ENDS OF THE HORSESHOE.
  • 05:33 IT IS AN IMITATION OF THE HAIRDO
  • 05:35 OF THE EGYPTIAN DEITY HATHOR.
  • 05:39 THE BODIES WERE STRETCHED ON TOP
  • 05:41 OF THE BENCHES AND THEN, AFTER
  • 05:45 APPROXIMATELY A YEAR, THEY TOOK
  • 05:47 THE BONES AND THE BURIAL GIFTS,
  • 05:50 WHICH WERE DEPOSITED,
  • 05:54 TOGETHER WITH THE BODIES,
  • 05:55 THEY TOOK THEM DOWN
  • 05:56 INTO A HOLLOW AREA
  • 05:59 UNDERNEATH THE BENCHES.
  • 06:01 THIS IS THE REPOSITORY.
  • 06:03 THIS IS THE ENTRANCE
  • 06:04 OF THE REPOSITORY.
  • 06:06 INSIDE THIS REPOSITORY, WE STILL
  • 06:08 SEE THE BONES OF THE DECEASED,
  • 06:11 PART OF WHICH COULD WELL BE
  • 06:15 ORIGINAL BONES DATING BACK
  • 06:16 TO 1st TEMPLE PERIOD.
  • 06:19 Zola: THERE IS ANOTHER CHAMBER
  • 06:20 AT THE REAR OF THE COMPLEX
  • 06:21 WHERE ARCHAEOLOGISTS
  • 06:22 FOUND THE REMAINS
  • 06:23 OF THREE SARCOPHAGI,
  • 06:25 OR STONE COFFINS,
  • 06:26 HEWN OUT OF THE LIVING ROCK.
  • 06:28 THIS BURIAL CUSTOM
  • 06:29 IS REFERRED TO IN 2 KINGS 22:20;
  • 06:39 THESE OSSUARY ON DISPLAY AT
  • 06:41 THE ISRAEL MUSEUM, WERE USED TO
  • 06:43 HOLD THE BONES OF THE DECEASED.
  • 06:46 THE DIRECTOR OF THE MUSEUM,
  • 06:47 TALKS ABOUT ONE VERY SPECIAL
  • 06:49 OSSUARY BEARING THE NAME
  • 06:51 OF THE HIGH PRIEST, CAIAPHAS.
  • 06:53 Dr. Martin Weyl: THE BOX
  • 06:54 YOU ARE LOOKING AT THIS MOMENT
  • 06:55 IS NOT A JEWELRY BOX.
  • 06:58 IT IS A BOX MADE OUT
  • 07:00 OF LIMESTONE, THE LOCAL STONE.
  • 07:03 DURING THE PERIOD OF
  • 07:04 THE 2nd TEMPLE, THE BONES
  • 07:06 OF THE DEAD WERE DEPOSED
  • 07:08 IN SUCH BOXES AND, THEREFORE,
  • 07:10 IT IS CALLED AN OSSUARY.
  • 07:12 IN LATIN "OS" MEANS "BONE".
  • 07:16 SUCH BOXES, AFTER THE BONES WERE
  • 07:20 DEPOSITED IN THEM, USUALLY WERE
  • 07:22 THEN PUT INTO CAVES IN
  • 07:24 THE PROTECTED AREA WHERE
  • 07:25 SOMETIMES WHOLE FAMILIES
  • 07:27 KEPT TOGETHER THE BONES
  • 07:30 OF THEIR FAMILY.
  • 07:32 WE HAVE MANY.
  • 07:33 WE HAVE MAYBE HUNDREDS
  • 07:34 OF THOUSANDS OF BOXES LIKE
  • 07:36 THESE OSSUARIES THAT WERE FOUND
  • 07:37 IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 07:39 BUT THIS OSSUARY IS SO SPECIAL
  • 07:41 BECAUSE IT HAS AN INSCRIPTION
  • 07:42 WHICH MENTIONS THE BONES,
  • 07:45 THE NAME OF THE BONES
  • 07:46 OF THE PERSON
  • 07:47 THAT WAS BURIED IN THE BOX.
  • 07:49 THE NAME THAT IS MENTIONED
  • 07:50 IN HERE IS JOSEPHUS CAIAPHAS
  • 07:54 AND THE FAMILY OF CAIAPHAS
  • 07:55 IS WELL KNOWN TO US
  • 07:56 FROM SEVERAL SOURCES;
  • 07:58 THE FIRST SOURCE
  • 07:59 BEING THE TALMUD.
  • 08:01 WE KNOW ABOUT THE FAMILY
  • 08:04 THAT THEY WERE HIGH PRIESTS
  • 08:05 IN THE TEMPLE.
  • 08:06 THEY WERE NOT OFTEN LIKED AT
  • 08:08 THE PERIOD BUT IT WAS APPARENTLY
  • 08:10 A VERY ARISTOCRATIC FAMILY
  • 08:12 BELONGING TO THE GROUP OF JEWS
  • 08:14 WHO WERE CALLED THE SADDUCEES.
  • 08:17 THE SECOND CASE WE KNOW THE NAME
  • 08:19 FROM IS FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 08:21 THIS IS ONE OF
  • 08:22 THE VERY FEW CASES THAT WE HAVE
  • 08:24 AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE
  • 08:26 FOR THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 08:28 Tom: ONE OF THE FINDS,
  • 08:29 WE UNDERSTAND, IN A TOMB
  • 08:30 SIMILAR TO THIS, A SIMILAR TIME,
  • 08:34 WAS A GREAT DISCOVERY
  • 08:36 OF SCRIPTURE PORTION.
  • 08:38 COULD YOU DESCRIBE THAT FOR US?
  • 08:41 Gabi: THE TRUTH IS I COULD
  • 08:42 STAND HERE FOR SEVERAL HOURS AND
  • 08:44 TELL YOU ABOUT THAT DISCOVERY.
  • 08:46 IT WAS MADE ABOUT A MILE AND
  • 08:49 A HALF FROM HERE, ON THE WESTERN
  • 08:51 SIDE OF ANCIENT JERUSALEM,
  • 08:54 NOT FAR FROM THE JERUSALEM
  • 08:56 RAILWAY STATION.
  • 08:58 THE PLACE THERE
  • 09:00 IS KNOWN AS KATEPH HINNOM,
  • 09:02 OR THE SHOULDER OF HINNOM.
  • 09:04 WE EXCAVATED THERE
  • 09:06 UNDER MY DIRECTORSHIP
  • 09:08 SEVEN BURIAL CAVES
  • 09:10 DATING BACK TO 7th CENTURY BC.
  • 09:13 ONE OF THEM WAS LOOTED IN
  • 09:15 ANTIQUITY, BUT THE REPOSITORY
  • 09:18 UNDERNEATH ONE OF THE BENCHES
  • 09:21 ESCAPED THE FATE OF THE REST
  • 09:23 OF THE CAVE AND IT INCLUDED
  • 09:25 ALL THE GOODIES
  • 09:27 WHICH WERE PLACED THERE,
  • 09:28 TOGETHER WITH THE DECEASED,
  • 09:30 ALL THE BURIAL GIFTS AND
  • 09:31 THE BURIAL FURNITURE WERE FOUND
  • 09:33 IN THEIR ORIGINAL POSITION
  • 09:35 INSIDE THE REPOSITORY,
  • 09:37 THANKS TO THE FACT THAT,
  • 09:38 AS A RESULT OF AN EARTHQUAKE,
  • 09:40 ONE LAYER OF THE CEILING GOT
  • 09:42 UNPEELED, COLLAPSED AND BURIED
  • 09:44 THE CONTENTS OF THE REPOSITORY
  • 09:46 UNDERNEATH IT AND THE LOOTERS
  • 09:48 THOUGHT THAT THE TOP
  • 09:50 OF THE UNPEELED ROCK
  • 09:52 FROM THE CEILING
  • 09:55 WAS THE FLOOR AND, THEREFORE,
  • 09:57 THEY LEFT IT UNTOUCHED.
  • 10:00 WE HAD THERE A GUSHER OF FINDS.
  • 10:02 MORE THAN 1,000 OBJECTS
  • 10:03 IN ONE CHAMBER:
  • 10:04 ABOUT 300 INTACT POTTERY VESSELS
  • 10:08 WERE FOUND THERE,
  • 10:10 ABOUT 40 ARROWHEADS OF IRON,
  • 10:13 ALL KINDS OF PIECES OF JEWELRY,
  • 10:15 ABOUT 120 PIECES OF SILVER, AND
  • 10:19 VARIOUS OTHER PRECIOUS METALS
  • 10:22 AND PRECIOUS OBJECTS,
  • 10:23 SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES, ETC.
  • 10:26 ONE OF THE FINDS WAS TWO SMALL,
  • 10:29 TINY PIECES, WHICH LOOKED
  • 10:31 LIKE CIGARETTE BUTTS,
  • 10:33 ROLLED UP TINY OBJECTS,
  • 10:36 EACH OF THEM,
  • 10:37 LESS THAN AN INCH IN LENGTH
  • 10:40 AND LESS THAN
  • 10:41 HALF AN INCH IN DIAMETER.
  • 10:43 THEY WERE MADE OF PURE SILVER.
  • 10:45 THEY WERE DISCOVERED
  • 10:46 BY A YOUNG AMERICAN LADY.
  • 10:49 THE FIRST ONE WAS OBSERVED
  • 10:51 BY HER STILL IN THE GROUND.
  • 10:53 HER NAME IS JUDY TEDLEY,
  • 10:54 FROM TOLEDO, OHIO.
  • 10:57 THE OBJECT, IT TOOK US ABOUT
  • 11:00 THREE YEARS TO UNROLL IT
  • 11:02 AND TO OUR SURPRISE, IT WAS MADE
  • 11:04 OF PURE SILVER, 99% OF SILVER.
  • 11:09 IT LOOKED LIKE
  • 11:10 A STRAP OF SILVER.
  • 11:12 IT WAS DENSELY COVERED WITH VERY
  • 11:14 DELICATELY SCRATCHED CHARACTERS
  • 11:17 IN THE ANCIENT HEBREW SCRIPT.
  • 11:19 THE FIRST WORD TO BE DECIPHERED
  • 11:21 WAS, TO MY SURPRISE, THE NAME
  • 11:24 OF THE LORD, THE TETRAGRAMMATON,
  • 11:26 OR WHAT WE ANGLICIZE SOMETIMES
  • 11:29 AS "JEHOVAH,"
  • 11:31 YOD(Y); HEY(H); VAV(V); HEY(H);
  • 11:33 WHICH APPEARS IN
  • 11:34 THE HEBREW BIBLE WHENEVER
  • 11:35 THE ENGLISH BIBLE HAS THE WORD
  • 11:37 "THE LORD."
  • 11:38 LATER ON, WE DISCOVERED
  • 11:39 THAT THE NAME OF THE LORD,
  • 11:42 WHICH WAS FOR
  • 11:43 THE FIRST TIME DISCOVERED
  • 11:45 IN THE CITY OF THE LORD,
  • 11:46 IN JERUSALEM, KEEPS REAPPEARING
  • 11:49 SEVERAL MORE TIMES,
  • 11:51 AND, OF COURSE, THAT REPETITION
  • 11:53 RINGS A BELL, AND WE CAME UP
  • 11:57 WITH A DECIPHERMENT OF
  • 11:58 THE INSCRIPTION AND IT INCLUDED
  • 12:01 ON BOTH PLAQUES, VERSIONS
  • 12:03 OF THE PRIESTLY BENEDICTION,
  • 12:06 WHICH APPEARS IN THE BIBLE
  • 12:08 IN THE BOOK OF NUMBERS 6:24-26.
  • 12:13 "THE LORD BLESS THEE
  • 12:14 AND KEEP THEE," ETC.,
  • 12:16 BUT, OF COURSE,
  • 12:17 IN THE HEBREW ORIGINAL.
  • 12:19 THE WORDS START WITH...
  • 12:23 ( Speaking Hebrew )
  • 12:26 "THE LORD BLESS THEE
  • 12:27 AND KEEP THEE."
  • 12:28 NOW, THE TEXT IS
  • 12:31 SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT
  • 12:33 THAN THE MASORETIC TEXT,
  • 12:34 WHICH IS PRESERVED IN THE BIBLE.
  • 12:36 THE DIFFERENCES ARE SLIGHT,
  • 12:38 BUT VERY INTERESTING.
  • 12:39 THEY TEACH US, OF COURSE,
  • 12:40 ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE TEXT
  • 12:42 AND HOW IT WAS TRANSFERRED DOWN
  • 12:45 TO US THROUGH THE GENERATIONS.
  • 12:48 MORE THAN THAT, THESE WORDS,
  • 12:50 THESE BIBLICAL VERSES ARE
  • 12:52 THE OLDEST BIBLICAL VERSES
  • 12:54 THAT WE OWN.
  • 12:55 THEY BELONG TO
  • 12:57 THE 7th CENTURY BC, TO THE TIME
  • 12:59 OF THE PROPHET JEREMIAH,
  • 13:00 TO THE TIME OF KING JOSIAH.
  • 13:02 THEY PREDATE THE VERY FAMOUS
  • 13:04 DEAD SEA SCROLLS
  • 13:05 BY SEVERAL CENTURIES.
  • 13:07 THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
  • 13:11 SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS DISCOVERY,
  • 13:12 BECAUSE WE HAVE HERE BIBLICAL
  • 13:14 VERSES WHICH BELONG TO THE TIME
  • 13:17 OF THE DAVIDIC DYNASTY,
  • 13:18 FIRST TEMPLE PERIOD,
  • 13:20 MUCH BEFORE THE CANONIZATION
  • 13:23 OF THE BIBLICAL TEXT,
  • 13:24 MUCH BEFORE IT GOT CRYSTALLIZED
  • 13:26 AND COPIED AND BROUGHT DOWN
  • 13:30 TO US VIA THE CHAIN
  • 13:32 OF GENERATIONS OF COPIERS
  • 13:37 AS WE HAVE IT TODAY.
  • 13:38 SO, THIS IS BEFORE THE FINAL
  • 13:40 CRYSTALLIZATION OF THE TEXT.
  • 13:42 THIS IS IMPORTANT.
  • 13:44 AND IT IS IMPORTANT ALSO
  • 13:45 TO SEE A TEXT
  • 13:46 WHICH IS SO SLIGHTLY CHANGED
  • 13:48 FOR MORE THAN 2,600 YEARS.
  • 14:02 Zola: COMING UP,
  • 14:03 WE'LL EXAMINE THE IMPORTANCE
  • 14:04 OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS
  • 14:05 AND WITNESS FURTHER EVIDENCE
  • 14:07 OF THE BIBLE'S
  • 14:08 IMPECCABLE ACCURACY.

  • 16:51 THE VIEW FROM THE ADJACENT
  • 16:52 MOUNTAINS LOOKING TOWARD
  • 16:53 THE RUINS OF THE ESSENE
  • 16:54 COMMUNITY IS QUITE SPECTACULAR,
  • 16:57 AS THE DEAD SEA GLISTENS
  • 16:58 IN THE BACKGROUND.
  • 17:00 TOM JOINS STEVE IN A CLIMB
  • 17:02 OF THE MOUNTAINS TO THE SITE
  • 17:03 WHERE THE FIRST
  • 17:04 OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS
  • 17:06 WAS DISCOVERED.
  • 17:07 THE SUBJECT OF THE SCROLLS
  • 17:09 CONTINUES TO FASCINATE
  • 17:10 AND INTRIGUE.
  • 17:13 Steve: WE'RE SITTING ABOUT
  • 17:14 150 YARDS ABOVE THE DEAD SEA.
  • 17:18 THIS IS JUST ABOUT A KILOMETER,
  • 17:21 OR 2/3rd OF A MILE TO THE NORTH
  • 17:23 OF KHIRBET, QUMRAN,
  • 17:24 WHERE THEY ESSENES LIVED.
  • 17:26 HERE, A LITTLE LESS THAN
  • 17:29 2,000 YEARS AGO, SOME OF
  • 17:32 THE INHABITANTS OF QUMRAN
  • 17:35 GOT THEIR PRIZED SCROLLS
  • 17:37 AND HID THEM IN JARS
  • 17:38 AND CARRIED THEM
  • 17:39 UP TO THIS CAVE
  • 17:40 THAT IS RIGHT BEHIND ME HERE.
  • 17:41 Tom: THAT'S ONE OF THE CAVES
  • 17:42 THAT THEY PUT THE JARS IN.
  • 17:45 Steve: THIS WAS THE FIRST CAVE
  • 17:46 THAT WAS DISCOVERED
  • 17:47 THIS CENTURY, IN 1947,
  • 17:50 IN THE WINTER.
  • 17:52 A SHEPHERD WAS FOLLOWING HIS
  • 17:54 SHEEP UP THE RIFT VALLEY HERE.
  • 17:59 ACCORDING TO THE ORIGINAL STORY,
  • 18:00 HE WAS CHASING HIM UP
  • 18:01 INTO THE HILLS, LOOKING FOR HIM
  • 18:03 AND THREW A ROCK TO SCARE IT
  • 18:05 BACK DOWN AND SAW THIS HOLE;
  • 18:06 THREW THE ROCK INTO THE HOLE
  • 18:08 IN THE CAVE
  • 18:09 AND HEARD SOME CLINKING INSIDE.
  • 18:11 THAT'S WHEN
  • 18:12 THE WHOLE SAGA BEGAN.
  • 18:14 Tom: HE KNEW IT SOUNDED
  • 18:15 DIFFERENT FROM HITTING A ROCK
  • 18:18 AND CAME TO INVESTIGATE IT THEN.
  • 18:19 Steve: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 18:20 ONE STORY SAYS THAT HE THOUGHT
  • 18:22 THAT THERE WAS A GENIE INSIDE
  • 18:23 THAT WAS PROTECTING A TREASURE.
  • 18:24 SO, HE WENT DOWN
  • 18:25 AND GOT HIS BROTHER
  • 18:26 TO COME BACK UP WITH HIM
  • 18:29 SO THAT ONE OF THEM COULD GO IN
  • 18:30 AND THE OTHER ONE COULD GO
  • 18:31 FOR HELP IF THE GENIE ENDED UP
  • 18:32 CAPTURING HIM.
  • 18:34 SO, THEY WENT INSIDE AND WERE
  • 18:36 DISAPPOINTED ONLY TO FIND
  • 18:37 THESE LEATHER THINGS INSIDE
  • 18:39 THESE JARS INSTEAD OF TREASURE.
  • 18:41 Tom: IT TURNED OUT TO BE
  • 18:42 ONE OF THE GREATEST TREASURES
  • 18:43 FOR MANKIND.
  • 18:44 Steve: INDEED.
  • 18:45 Tom: YOU HAVE A SAMPLE OF ONE
  • 18:47 OF THE SCROLLS THAT WAS FOUND.
  • 18:50 WHAT DOES IT SAY?
  • 18:51 Steve: THIS IS A REPLICA
  • 18:53 OF A SCROLL THAT WAS TAKEN APART
  • 18:57 AND, NOW, I'VE TAKEN THE PIECES
  • 19:01 FROM VARIOUS PLACES
  • 19:02 AND PUT IT BACK TOGETHER.
  • 19:04 IT'S CALLED
  • 19:06 "THE COMMUNITY RULE,"
  • 19:07 OR "THE MANUAL OF DISCIPLINE,"
  • 19:08 WHICH IS THE LISTING
  • 19:09 OF THE RULES.
  • 19:11 THE FIRST TWO SHEETS DEAL WITH
  • 19:12 THE ENTRANCE INTO THE COMMUNITY.
  • 19:14 THE NOVICES AS THEY ENTER, AFTER
  • 19:15 TWO YEARS OF THEIR NOVICESHIP,
  • 19:19 END UP SAYING, FIRST OF ALL,
  • 19:21 THAT THEY AND THEIR FATHERS HAVE
  • 19:23 SINNED AND THEY HAVE SINNED, AND
  • 19:25 THAT THEY WERE CALLING ON GOD
  • 19:27 FOR HIS CLEANSING OF THEIR SINS
  • 19:31 AS THEY ACTUALLY ENTERED INTO
  • 19:32 THE WATERS OF ESSENE BAPTISM
  • 19:34 FOR ENTRANCE INTO THE SITE.
  • 19:37 Zola: THE WATERS OF BAPTISM,
  • 19:39 HERE AT QUMRAN,
  • 19:40 WERE CALLED " MIKVAOT."
  • 19:42 JUST A SHORT DISTANCE FROM HERE
  • 19:44 JOHN THE BAPTIST
  • 19:45 IMMERSED THE LORD IN THE WATERS
  • 19:46 OF THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 19:48 INTERESTINGLY, JOHN HAD MUCH
  • 19:50 IN COMMON WITH THE ESSENES.
  • 19:54 Steve: THEY CAME OUT TO
  • 19:55 THE WILDERNESS TO TRY TO KEEP
  • 19:56 THE RULES IN THE TORAH THE WAY
  • 20:00 THAT GOD MEANT IT IN THE TORAH.
  • 20:05 AND THE LAWS OF MOSES,
  • 20:06 THEY WANTED TO APPLY
  • 20:07 TO THEIR OWN LIVES.
  • 20:08 THEY FELT THEY WERE CALLED
  • 20:09 TO THE WILDERNESS
  • 20:10 TO PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD.
  • 20:12 THEY SAID, "THE WAY OF THE LORD
  • 20:13 IS THE MIDRASH OF THE TORAH."
  • 20:16 THAT MEANS,
  • 20:17 THE STUDY OF THE TORAH.
  • 20:18 SO, THEY ALWAYS HAD ONE PERSON
  • 20:19 IN THEIR COMMUNITY
  • 20:21 STUDYING IT ALL DAY LONG
  • 20:22 AND THEN EVERY 3rd NIGHT
  • 20:24 THEY HAD A VIGIL IN WHICH
  • 20:25 EVERYONE STUDIED IT TOGETHER.
  • 20:26 Tom: SO, DAY AND NIGHT,
  • 20:27 SOMEBODY OR THE WHOLE COMMUNITY
  • 20:29 WAS STUDYING THE TORAH.
  • 20:31 Steve: AND THEY WERE STUDYING
  • 20:32 THE TORAH WITH A NEW ANGLE
  • 20:35 THAN THEIR PREDECESSORS.
  • 20:36 THEY WERE STUDYING
  • 20:37 IN THE LIGHT OF THE PROPHETS,
  • 20:39 WHICH WAS A VERY IMPORTANT
  • 20:40 ELEMENT THAT A MAN
  • 20:42 BY THE NAME OF "THE TEACHER OF
  • 20:43 RIGHTEOUSNESS" BROUGHT TO THEM.
  • 20:45 ALSO, HIS SUCCESSOR
  • 20:46 IS KNOWN AS " THE MASKILIM ,"
  • 20:47 THE SPIRITUAL LEADERS
  • 20:48 OF THE GROUP,
  • 20:51 CARRIED ON IN THAT TRADITION.
  • 20:52 Tom: STEVE, I SEE YOU HAVE
  • 20:53 DISCOVERED SOME INTERESTING
  • 20:55 STONES THERE IN QUMRAN.
  • 20:57 WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO DO WITH IT?
  • 20:59 Steve: ONE OF THE THINGS THAT
  • 21:00 THE ESSENES DID, WHICH THEY
  • 21:02 CARRIED ON AND CAME OUT OF
  • 21:04 THEIR PRIESTLY BACKGROUND WAS
  • 21:07 IN DESIGNATING ROLES AND LEVELS
  • 21:08 WITHIN THEIR COMMUNITY.
  • 21:10 THEY USED LOTS
  • 21:11 TO DETERMINE THESE THINGS.
  • 21:13 THERE AT THE SITE, IT WAS FOUND
  • 21:15 BACK IN THE '50s, SOME 50
  • 21:17 OF THESE LITTLE CLAY BALLS.
  • 21:22 Tom: I SEE THEY'RE ROUND
  • 21:23 AND THEY HAVE PIERCED HOLES
  • 21:24 IN THEM.
  • 21:27 Steve: YEAH, THEY HAVE
  • 21:29 DIFFERENT NUMBERS OF HOLES.
  • 21:31 EACH YEAR A PERSON WOULD RECEIVE
  • 21:34 A NEW LOT, A NEW NUMBER.
  • 21:36 THEY ALL ANSWERED
  • 21:38 TO ONE ANOTHER, SAT IN ORDER
  • 21:39 ACCORDING TO THE LEVEL
  • 21:41 IN RANKING THAT THEY RECEIVED
  • 21:42 FROM THIS AND ALSO WITHIN
  • 21:44 THE COMMUNITY OF QUMRAN ITSELF,
  • 21:46 WHICH WAS A VERY SPECIAL
  • 21:47 COMMUNITY COMPARED TO
  • 21:48 ALL THE OTHER COMMUNITIES
  • 21:49 WHERE THERE WERE ALSO
  • 21:50 MARRIED ESSENES LIVING.
  • 21:52 THEY ACTUALLY, ON A DAILY BASIS,
  • 21:54 USED THESE TO DETERMINE WHO
  • 21:56 CARRIED OUT WHICH ROLE, WHICH
  • 21:58 IS SIMILAR TO WHAT THE LEVITES
  • 21:59 DID EVERY DAY UP IN THE TEMPLE
  • 22:01 WHERE, IN THE GATES,
  • 22:02 THEY WOULD DETERMINE THEIR ROLES
  • 22:03 AND THEIR RANKS AND THEIR JOBS
  • 22:07 ACCORDING TO LOTS.
  • 22:09 Tom: AND THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT
  • 22:10 THIS WAS THE EVIDENCE OF DIVINE
  • 22:11 LEADING WHEN THEY DREW THE LOTS?
  • 22:13 Steve: WELL, YES.
  • 22:14 IT SAYS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 22:16 THAT, "MAN CASTS THE LOT
  • 22:19 BUT GOD DETERMINES THE OUTCOME."
  • 22:22 Zola: LOTS ARE MENTIONED
  • 22:23 24 TIMES IN THE BIBLE.
  • 22:25 IN JOSHUA 18:10 WE READ:
  • 22:37 IN THE BOOK OF JOHN
  • 22:38 WE FIND THAT LOTS WERE A PART
  • 22:40 OF THE PSALMIST'S PROPHECY
  • 22:41 REGARDING THE ROMAN SOLDIERS
  • 22:42 CONTENTION FOR JESUS' CLOAK.
  • 22:52 AND THIS IS
  • 22:53 THE PSALMIST'S PROPHECY.
  • 23:01 Steve: THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS GIVE
  • 23:02 US A VERY REAL UNDERSTANDING
  • 23:04 OF PEOPLE'S QUESTIONS,
  • 23:06 THEIR FEARS, THEIR ASPIRATIONS,
  • 23:08 WHICH HAD THEM PREPARED
  • 23:10 FOR THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH.
  • 23:11 TODAY, WE CAN LOOK BACK AT THAT
  • 23:14 AND SEE THAT THE GOSPELS THAT WE
  • 23:16 HOLD IN OUR HANDS, DO VERY MUCH
  • 23:18 REFLECT THAT HISTORICAL CONTEXT.
  • 23:21 Tom: MY TIME WITH STEVE
  • 23:22 HAD REALLY PEAKED MY INTEREST
  • 23:24 IN THE CAVE BEHIND HIM
  • 23:26 DURING THE INTERVIEW.
  • 23:27 SO, I DECIDED TO HAVE A LOOK
  • 23:29 FOR MYSELF.
  • 23:31 AMONG THE MORE VALUABLE WRITINGS
  • 23:32 FOUND IN THE CAVE WERE THOSE
  • 23:33 BY THE PROPHET ISAIAH.
  • 23:35 ORIGINALLY WRITTEN HUNDREDS OF
  • 23:36 YEARS BEFORE THE ESSENE SCRIBES
  • 23:39 PRESERVED THEM
  • 23:40 IN THEIR OWN HANDWRITING.
  • 23:42 THE LEATHER SCROLLS HAD BEEN
  • 23:43 HIDDEN HERE FOR 2,000 YEARS.
  • 23:46 TODAY THE ISAIAH SCROLL
  • 23:48 IS PRESERVED IN THE SHRINE
  • 23:49 OF THE BOOK IN JERUSALEM, ALONG
  • 23:51 WITH PORTIONS OF OTHER SCROLLS.
  • 23:54 FOR THOSE WILLING
  • 23:55 TO CONSIDER ITS MESSAGE,
  • 23:57 ISAIAH'S PROPHETIC CHAPTER 53,
  • 23:59 ABOUT THE COMING MESSIAH,
  • 24:01 HAS BECOME AN ETERNAL FLAME
  • 24:03 DISPELLING THE DARKNESS.
  • 24:16 IN QUMRAN, THE ECHOES FROM
  • 24:18 ROCKY CAVES CRY OUT, "I AM."
  • 24:33 (♪ Soft Flute ♪)
  • 25:06 Myles: WOW...THESE PROGRAMS
  • 25:07 ARE SO FAITH BUILDING;
  • 25:09 THEY'RE SO ENRICHING.

  • 25:12 WAS A REAL PERSON;
  • 25:13 HIS DYNASTY WAS REAL;
  • 25:14 THAT PILATE WAS REAL,
  • 25:16 AND CAIAPHAS,
  • 25:17 THAT THE CITY OF HAZOR
  • 25:19 WAS A REAL PLACE;
  • 25:20 THAT EVERYTHING THAT'S WRITTEN
  • 25:21 IN THIS WORD IS COMING ALIVE
  • 25:23 AS ARCHAEOLOGISTS ARE UNCOVERING
