Recently the Internet headlines call out:
"Could lead codices prove ‘the major discovery of Christian history?" "Could this be the biggest find since the Dead Sea Scrolls? Seventy metal books found in cave in Jordan could change our view of Biblical history" "Jordan battles to regain 'priceless' Christian relics."
