Jesus Christ Of Revelation? Is This 2,000-Year-Old Metal Book Sealed With Seven Seals Authentic? [Opinion]

Jesus Christ is to open the book of seven seals, according to “Revelation” 5. Here is a King James Bible quote of the first two verses of “Revelation” 5.

“And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?”

Jesus Christ will be the only one worthy to break the seals on the book of seven seals and read that book, according to “Revelation” 5. However, a book of seven seals and mysterious artwork has been found in Jordan, according to this article by the Daily Mail. It is one of 70 small lead or copper books dubbed the Jordan Codices, according to Ancient Origins.

These small metal books about Jesus Christ are bound on the sides with holes punched, much like a modern ring binder. Many are bound on multiple sides. See them in the video below. While the authenticity of the books, including the book of seven seals, has been challenged, the books reportedly date back to the first or second century, according to testing done in Britain.

Jesus Christ is reportedly the subject of many of these books, which are also influenced by Judaism, at least from preliminary attempts to decipher them. These books are reportedly about the life of Jesus Christ and are heavily illustrated with many different styles of artwork.

Jesus Christ was not trying to create a new religion, Christianity, but rather to restore the traditions of King David’s era of Judaism, say some of the scholars attempting the translation. King David gave us the “Psalms” and “Proverbs.” David had a joyous faith full of music and dance, according to most Biblical accounts.

Jesus Christ did present a passionately joyous faith. Christ’s joy, like David’s joy, was not dependent on circumstances.

There are portraits, including one that many believe to be Jesus Christ, though others disagree. If the illustration is of Jesus Christ, it is would be the oldest representation of Jesus Christ’s face, other than the shroud of Turin.

Although a book of seven seals has been found, as one of the Jordan Codice books about Jesus Christ, none have been completely translated due to the difficulty of the language in some passages. It is possible that these passages are coded or encrypted.

Since these Christian texts about Jesus Christ were written in the time of the persecuted church, it is possible that the books are coded or encrypted. The Hebrew letters aren’t formed typically, and that could mean something, other than the difficulty of engraving them in lead.

Jesus Christ, Christianity, and Judaism have been the subject of many ancient books found in the previous century. Both the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library were only translated in recent decades. Before each was translated, strange stories about Jesus Christ’s life started coming out. The rumored content was not found in the actual translation. Ignore the rumors, wait for the book’s translation, and always consider the source of information.

Stories of Jesus Christ were not only suppressed in the second century, but the resistance continues until today. Many Christians are wary of “new” gospels not found in the King James Bible. The Jordan Codices are being repressed, especially in the United States, and most pastors dismiss the Nag Hammadi Library.

The metal books about Jesus Christ mix Greek and Hebrew letters in some spots, which might be typical of a culture that spoke both Greek and Hebrew for many generations, but encryption seems more likely. Sadly, it makes translation extremely difficult.

Newly discovered books about Jesus Christ, even those books without seven seals are viewed suspiciously, by many Christians, while others who follow Jesus are profoundly eager to get a translation.

Has Jesus Christ revealed a physical form of the heavenly book of seven seals, or are the book’s seven seals just a coincidence?
