      Experts examining 'old Christian' discoveries to determine authenticity
      Jordan Times, April 29th, 2011

      Jordanian antiquities authorities have announced the recovery of several
      lead-sealed texts which they believe will prove whether a cache of metal
      books represent the oldest Christian writings ever discovered are
      authentic or well-crafted forgeries. According to Department of
      Antiquities Director Ziad Saad, security services recovered this week
      several metal books from the local black market belonging to a horde of
      metal codices which some believe hold the secrets of early Christianity
      and could soon to be at the heart of an international dispute. Upon
      examination, the recently recovered books were deemed to be identical to
      a set of 70 lead-sealed metal texts currently in the possession of an
      Israeli bedouin which authorities announced last month were illegally
      excavated from a cave in northern Jordan a few years ago, Saad said.
