The Great Lost Treasure Mystery of The Bible Land_Will Someone Find It

Updated on August 8, 2013

The Mysterious Copper Scroll

Within the geography of the ancient Bible land of today known as the "Holy Land", a mysterious record of a lost treasure was accidentally found in 1947, in a series of caves along with numerous other artifacts and ancient scriptures of a Hebrew community that no one in our century knew existed. Bibilical diggers and scholar who have been studying this fabuoul window to our past, called the Qumran Library, found one very peculiar Copper Scroll more recently.

The Copper Scroll, found in 1952 in Cave 3, is nothing more than a list or inventory of buried treasure of mostly gold and silver in 64 different location in the ancient Bible land around the Jordon River geography. The amount of Gold and Silver recorded is quite large, and scholars studying the list after finally being able to carefully open this document that has been hidden for more than 2000 years using modern scientific tools and techniques.

It is pretty clear that whoever created this document, an artician skilled in the writing this document in copper, took much pain and time to prepare this and would not do so simply as a hoax.

So, the next question is if this myserty treasure is real, where did it come from. The scroll is written in a strange form of Hebrew, that helps scholars to date the origins of the writer and also who he was likely to be, and where such treasure might have originiate.

Whose Treasure is so buried ? Solomon's Temple or was it from the Second Temple that was rebuilt upon return of the Hebrew People to Jerusalem after exile in Babylon (2nd Temple was the so called Herod's Temple that existed at time of Jesus (destroyed in 70 AD by Roman invasion of Jerusalem).

Why The Treasure is Likely "Second Temple' rather than "First":

The text is an inventory of 64 locations; 63 of which are treasures of gold and silver, which have been estimated in the tons. Tithing vessels are also listed among the entries, along with other vessels, and three locations featured scrolls. One entry apparently mentions priestly vestments. The final listing points to a duplicate document with additional details. That other document has not been found.

In any case the scholars who have been studying this scroll have concluded, the treasure is more likely is real treasure and based on evidence of language and other clues on the arrangement of the inventory, the treasure is associated with the Second Temple and not the more ancient First Temple or Solomon's Temple.. It is also logical to link the treasure it the Temple as at during the time periods and geography, there were no other entity other than the temple to have possessed such treasure as given in this scroll.

The First Hebrew Temple (Solomon's Temple)

Solomon's Temple, also known as the First Temple, was the main temple in ancient Jerusalem, on the Temple Mount (also known as Mount Zion), before its destruction by Nebuchadnezzar II after the Siege of Jerusalem of 587 BC.

According to the Hebrew Bible, the temple was constructed under Solomon, king of the Israelites. This would date its construction to the 10th century BCE . But it is possible that the temple continued an earlier Jebusite sanctuary predating the Israelite conquest of Jerusalem During the kingdom of Judah, the temple was dedicated to Yahweh, the God of Israel and housed the Ark of the Covenant

Nebuchadnezzar II (634 - 562 BC) was king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire, who reigned c. 605 BC - 562 BC. According to the Bible, he conquered Judah and Jerusalem, and sent the Jews into exile. He is credited with the construction of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and also known for the destruction of the First Temple.

He is featured in the Book of Daniel and is also mentioned in several other books of the Bible.

More specifically, the scroll, in reference to one of the key locations, location 32, links the Copper Scroll to the Temple Treasury. In Hebrew folklore, there are references to hidden treasures from Solomon's Temple when pending doom of Jerusalem by foreign invasion was forseen.

But scholars concluded that the documents of this kind are very different in character from the Copper Scroll. Typically they refer to Moses, They often credit Jerimiah or some other revered prophet of prior era. None of such language can be found in the Copper Scroll.

Where is the House of Hakkoz ?

The Scholars concluded that the it is likely, somewhere between the time period of shortly before the 70 AD, to the time period of next century or so, the treasures were accumulated while the Hebrew nation remained dispersed but not assimilated.

There are some additional tentalizing clues. Some of the tresure is are hidden in the property of the House of Hakkoz. Hakkoz was the name of a priestly family that traced their ancestory to the time of David. The Hakkoz estate was in the Jordon Valley not far from Jericho. So the Hakkoz estate was listed in the center of the region where most of the Copper Scroll hiding places are located.
