UNEARTHED: THE CAVES OF QUMRAN & THE JESUS BOAT

THE CAVES OF QUMRAN: Unearthed between 1947 and 1956 in eleven caves in and around the Wadi Qumran. The texts are of great religious and historical significance, as they are practically the only known surviving Biblical documents written before AD 100. The Dead Sea scrolls comprise roughly 825-872 documents, including texts from the Hebrew Bible. We'll explore the Qumran area where the scrolls were discovered. We'll be joined by Dead Sea Scroll editors, archaeologists and historians. The Scrolls will come to life as we ask some tough questions. Was John the Baptist an Essene as some claim? Did he belong to this secret closed sect of Judaism? Recent excavations shed new light on this controversial topic.

THE JESUS BOAT: Unearthed in 1986 after a long drought in Israel. Two brothers from the local Kibbutz were exploring along the shores of the Sea of Galilee. To their surprise and excitement, they stumbled upon what has become one of the greatest archaeological discoveries in history a fully intact First Century Galilean fishing boat. Unearthed will re-visit the initial discovery and excavation of this amazing boat, with archived footage and recent interviews with the two brothers who made the remarkable discovery.
