Is this once-fabled ancient document the source of the 10 commandments? A feature-length look at the oldest religious document in the world. Computer graphics help illuminate the ancient text. Biblical scholars detail the extensive parallels to the Old Testament. It was lost for thousands of years, discovered a century ago, and its true meaning was recently resurrected by the miracle of computer graphics. It reveals the reason the Egyptians built the pyramids, it's the first written description of any religion, and it is the likely source of the 10 Commandments! This feature-length special follows THE EGYPTIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD from creation around 1800 BC near the site of the Egyptian city of Thebes, to rediscovery (and theft) in 1887 AD.
Biblical scholars agree that portions of the Old Testament are direct descendants of the Egyptian text, and some archaeologists argue that Moses must have read and carried a copy of it with him when he fled Egypt. Now, a new generation is reexamining the ancient text for wisdom that can still affect our inner lives! Find out what they have found out.
