Overview

Was there an actual geographical location for the Garden of Eden, and what really went on there? What strange, dangerous powers lay hidden in the Ark of the Covenant, and where is it now? What did the Prophet Ezekiel see? Could it have been a spaceship? What saved Daniel from the lions, and Shadrach and his friends from the furnace? What were the mysterious Urim and Thummim, and how did they work? Was Jesus married to Mary Magadalen? Was it at his own wedding that he changed water into wine? Did he heal the sick and resurrect Lazarus from the dead? All these intriguing questions, and many more, are answered in Mysteries of the Bible.

The Bible is a unique collection of sacred books and oral traditions that dates back over 5,000 years. It contains genuine history but also myths, legends, fables, and poems. There are also books of law, ethics, and prophecy. The four Gospels describe the life of Christ. The Book of Revelation addresses the future of civilization, including the End of the World and Judgment Day.

The receptive mind is always ready to consider new ideas and evaluate them fearlessly and rationally. In their attempt to find truth, the authors have removed the Bible from its previously inaccessible pedestal and they treat it as objectively as any other piece of valuable research data.
