“For the message of the cross is foolishness, to those
who are perishing, but to those who are saved,
it is the power of God.”
— 1 Corinthians 1:18
Amid all the violence and chaos that is the Middle East, a tomb is discovered by seismic researchers beneath the foundations of present day Jerusalem. The tomb is dated from the first century A.D., and contains a number of scroll jars with remarkably preserved documents from this period. Unfortunately, none of the experts in Paleographics, which the Israeli government has called in, can decipher the text. As a last resort they turn to Dr. Terry Harper, known around the world as “The Bone Man”, (from his TV specials), to help solve this mystery.
What Dr. Harper finds is, a first person, eyewitness account of Jesus final week in Jerusalem, which is written in the original author’s hand, (no transcriptions of transcriptions over the centuries). Will it confirm or discount the Gospel accounts of this event that have guided people for thousands of years? Only Dr. Harper has the key to unlocking this mystery…and sharing it may cost him his life.
