Encounters with the Unexplained: What Brought Down TWA Flight 800? & What Do the Dead Sea Scrolls Tell Us? (2002)
In one of the most horrific air disasters of all time, TWA Flight 800 exploded in mid-air and fell into the Atlantic Ocean just east of Long Island. Could it be that even as TWA Flight 800 left the ground some as yet undiscovered mechanical failure had already planted the seeds of disaster? Or was there something more sinister? Experienced witnesses claim what they saw in the sky was definitely military ordinance. Is it possible that TWA Flight 800 was the victim of a military miscalculation or a covert act of terrorism?
In part two of this program we'll examine the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th Century - perhaps of all time,. The Dead Sea Scrolls. These scraps of ancient documents purport to actually contain material that could alter or change the modern view of both Judaism and Christianity. Yet thousands of fragments found in caves near the Dead Sea still remain not only untranslated but unread. Will modern technology bring these ancient texts to life and give us an even closer look at the world in which Christ lived?
