Background Information

The Jonathan Park CDs are produced by Vision Forum Ministries.  Through these CDs, VF hope to ‘provide children and adults with scientific evidence that is in harmony with the Word of God’.  [Which raises the questions, ‘What does “in harmony” mean?’ and ‘What do they do with scientific evidence that is not in harmony with the Word of God?’]

Tagline: This is our Father’s world, God created it; we can explore it, so live the adventure!

NOTE: The producers of this series neglect to reference their information in any form.  No references is ever given either on the CD or in the Study Guide for ANY information presented in the series.  Even the voice actors of the series are not given any credit anywhere.  We only know that the series is a production of Vision Forum Ministries.

Plot Summary:

The British Museum houses some of the most exciting tablets ever discovered, and some of those tablets may help decipher the Copper Scroll. But when one of the Amarna tablets is stolen, the museum blames Jonathan, Kendall, Akiva, and Ian—and denies them further access to the museum’s artifacts. Who is behind these thefts? And why does Myles Morgan seem to be secretly tailing the team? (Taken from here.)

There is NO Study Guide for Volume 8.  You’re on your own!

Review

There really is a copper scroll that speaks of hidden treasure.

The Amarna Tablets really do mention Lab’aya.

EA244 and EA289 are held in the Museums in Cairo and Berlin respectively. This site gives the inscription found on some of the tablets.

The Mari Ebla and Nuzi Tablets do show many of the same customs that we read about in the Scriptures.

The Siloam Inscription was actually found in the tunnel built by Hezekiah.

There is a real vase that contains the inscription of King Xerxes of Esther.

***********************************************************

I’m not going to go into detail about the information presented in this episode.

There is a lot of historical information and the characters try to cram it all in within a short space of time.  It is not easy to follow if one is not familiar with the names and places.  It is even more difficult to follow if one is not an auditory learner.

The listener would get more out of it from listening multiple times and actually doing some research into the claims.
