Seventy metal books found in cave in Jordan - They’re small “books,” but they could be one of the biggest finds in Christian history. 70 tiny, lead tablets, bound with wire, were found in the last five years in Jordan, and some say they could offer key details of the early church, the final years of Jesus’s life, and may even be referenced in the book of Revelation. This booklet shows what scholars believe to be the map of Christian Jerusalem. 2010
