70 metal books found in a cave in Jordan can change our view on Biblical history

Lines of inquiry: The metal tablets could change our understanding of the Bible

Seventy metal books found in cave in Jordan could change our view of Biblical history. For scholars of faith and history, it is a treasure trove too precious for price. This ancient collection of 70 tiny books, their lead pages bound with wire, could unlock some of the secrets of the earliest days of Christianity. Academics are divided as to their authenticity but say that if verified, they could prove as pivotal as the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947.

Could this be the biggest find since the Dead Sea Scrolls?
