This is who is trying to make “70 metal books found in cave in Jordan could change our view of Biblical history” story from dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech
into a legitimate biblical archaeological find. This man has the audacity to say that these could change our understanding of the bible. His story is paper thin, he is pandering to the ignorance of the generally unlearned person.
Lew Rockwell linked to the story, I am very sad to report, as I find much good and useful information on his website. I looked into the background of this story and find it to be a hoax, you have been had, Mr. Rockwell.
This is a disreputable attempt to muddy the foundations of the Holy Word of God. Do not trust this sensational reporting.
The header of the biography page for David Elkington has this photo;
This is occult. The ouroboros, the serpent devouring his own tail, represents anti-christ.
This is great deception that this man is trying to pull upon anyone foolish and ignorant of the Holy Scriptures. This is preparing the way for the “another gospel” that Jesus Christ of Nazareth warned us about.
Read the Authorized King James Version Bible, not an annotated version, not a contemporary version, memorize God’s Word, put on the whole armour of God. This is the battle against powers & principalities we have been warned about.
Ephesians 6:12 (King James Version)
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
David Elkington was born in England in 1962 but spent his formative years travelling and exploring the Southern Hemisphere with his parents. His childhood in Australia was supplemented by sojourns in Polynesia, New Zealand and Indonesia. It was in these places that he first developed an interest in Sacred Sites and ancient traditions.
He trained as an artist at the Bath Academy of Art where an interest in the relationship between Christian myth and sacred sites was fuelled. Research for his book ‘In the Name of the Gods’ began in earnest in the early 1980s when he walked through Europe and the Middle East on a quest to understand and appreciate the mind of Ancient Man and his relationship with particular sites upon the Earth.
For 20 years David has been led on a revelatory trail through world mythology, linguistics and philology into geophysics, architecture, acoustics, music, neuro-physiology, theology and still further into the all-encompassing, resonant atmosphere of the planet. As his research continued, surprising results emerged. For several years, David has been working with Dr Keith Hearne, the ‘father of lucid dream research’, on a new area of psychology – Geolinguistics – which sees the development of language as a direct result of the Earth’s physical environment.
David began to introduce his work to the public in 1996 when he presented a major lecture on ‘Acoustic Resonance, Life and Consciousness’ at the Quest for Knowledge Conference in London. He lectures in England and Europe, has co-hosted a tour of the major ancient sites of Egypt and is a member of the Egypt Exploration Society and Palestine Exploration Fund. He has been a consultant to the government of Sierra Leone, to the BBC, ITV, and to NASA.
Beyond Elkington’s clearly occult New Age background he has made the mistake of using the same photography company, Rex Features, who serves up images for the sensational publications that specialize in royalty, entertainment, and political correctness for the grocery store check out lanes. He uses as weight to his claims,“Dr Margaret Barker, a former president of the Society for Old Testament Study, said: ‘The Book of Revelation tells of a sealed book that was opened only by the Messiah.
‘Other texts from the period tell of sealed books of wisdom and of a secret tradition passed on by Jesus to his closest disciples. That is the context for this discovery.’
The last statement about “a secret tradition” is an out right lie and fabrication! These people are printing lies in order to cast doubt upon the Word of God. The very context and tone of this article is meant to “change view Biblical history”.
Mr Elkington has some very powerful sponsors who have been preparing his find for the world to accept. This advertizing agency http://www.curtisbrown.co.uk/news.aspx?news=1107 Literary and Talent Agency represents him. “News of the discovery broke” on BBC 4’s Radio Today Programme. The advert was very slick and again aluded to the falsehood about a secret in the Bible and even enlarged the implication into a “collection” of secrets by this implication, “The existence of a significant, hidden collection of sealed codices is mentioned in the Christian Bible’s Book of Revelation and in other biblical books.”
In announcing the find, David Elkington said: “It is an enormous privilege to be able to reveal this discovery to the world. But, as ever, the find begs more questions than it answers. The academic and spiritual debate must now commence, and this needs a calm and rational environment to be most productive. So it is vital that the collection can be recovered intact and secured in the best possible circumstances, both for the benefit of its owners and for a potentially fascinated international audience”.
In addition to the forthcoming book, there will be a documentary film about the find and its significance to the study of early Judeo-Christian relations.
There is a lot of money to be made here for the author and documentary makers and a lot of destruction to weak minded uneducated in spiritual matters people who trust the BBC and the popular press. Curtis Brown Literary and Talent Agency have set the tone for sensationalization of the latest heresy against the Church of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I hope this effort goes down in flames in the here and now, but I know for a fact that in the here after it will not succeed.
SAD, SAD, SAD. It will not work against the true Church. But it is amazing how stupid these authors and publication thinks the masses are! This is an incredibly transparent fable complete with Jordanian cave, danger to the prized object, and Bedouins both Jordanian AND Israeli! Fantastic!
