Five years ago those codices appeared in a cave situated in Jordan.It is supposed to be a place where the Christian believers have fled after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 CE. The codices have the size of a credit card, containing images and textual allusions to the Messiah. More exactly, they are documents about crucifixion and resurrection and references about Book of Revelation . Some of the codices were sealed. Metallurgical research indicates that the codices are about 2,000 years old.
