Forbidden History: The Dead Sea Scroll Mystery
The Dead Sea Scroll Mystery
Season 5  |  Episode 5  |  The History Channel  |  September 22, 2018

They've been called the greatest manuscript discoveries of modern times - but was the unearthing of the 981 fragmented texts 1300 feet below sea level in the caves near the ancient settlement of Qumran between 1947 and 1956 actually just the beginning of one of one of history's great religious conspiracies? What was written on them? What do they reveal about the time of Jesus? Why did the Catholic Church keep them out of the public eye for nearly thirty years? And what else lies buried here? Jamie is off to Israel to find out.
