Yesterday in Sunday School, I heard about the Copper Scrolls for the first time. Fascinating stuff, really. There's a man, Jim Barfield (he's a former fire fighter!), who believes that he has, through God's help, discovered where the items are that are listed on the Copper Scrolls. Evidently the scrolls are a treasure map of sorts that disclose the locations of the Tabernacle items, unimaginable amounts of gold and silver coins, gems and possibly even the Ark of the Covenant! It's things like these that make me wish I had pursued archeology. When I was in the fifth grade I wanted to be an archeologist. I was sorely disappointed, however, when I realized that King Tut's tomb had already been discovered, so I put that idea out of my head! LOL! (BTW, King Tut's stuff is on display in Atlanta, GA. I desperately want to go see it) Of course I really hate being sweaty and dirty, so I wouldn't make a good archeologist anyway. If you click on the links above they will take you to the websites with videos where I found out more information. If you're into history and biblical archeology I'm sure you'll find it as interesting as I did. Here's another site with pictures.
