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 Copper Scroll has led the CRT to the biblical city of Shechem where they are investigating the Tomb of Joseph and Jacob’s Well. But the B’nai Essenes are close behind! Meanwhile, the team’s public support begins to wane as people grow impatient waiting for the treasure’s discovery. Can Jonathan and company unlock the mystery before support runs out? (Taken from here.)

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


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

Shechem is a real place mentioned throughout the entirety of the Bible and played a role in the lives of Abraham, Jacob, Joseph and so many others.

There is a tomb that is considered by many to be the actual tomb of Joseph.

The Temple Baal-Berith, the upright stele, and the East Gate are mentioned in Judges 9.


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.
