"Seventy K L I F. Shelley before we dive into the calls. We were talking about how Jim Barfield you said is convinced that the ark of the covenant lies beneath the ruins of coumarin. And I wanted you to finish up on that point before we start taking some calls. Right. So there's actually a mound just north west of. Close to it. But technically outside of their really game Barfield. I had said that you know, that he wasn't able to get permission to do. Electric survey of combined with the metal detector, but actually has one at three of the sixty sites. It was a member of Knesset Israel's Knesset, which is their parliamentary body mostly fake. Lynn hurry fifth. They've very that guy has been arrested many times for for visiting the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. And and. Politician that that seems to not care about about playing too close to the rules. And so he threw a series, of course, events, and and and meets Jim Barfield hears about his research and volunteers to use his Knesset, immunity and do a scan with detector at several sites at Courant wicker without permission from the Arctic antiquities authority, and that's what he does. And so we actually have positive proof that there's something large something nonferrous and and deep underground both in Koran and at this site that Jim Bartels research, specifically points to right outside of mine. And so he thinks that's the ark. But isn't doesn't the the mercy seat on the ark? Isn't it covered in gold? Yes. It's a case. You would that's all gelded. So the nice part is that just like in Egypt and just like with the Dead Sea scrolls, as in the desert Catia would was buried deeply somewhere in the Judean desert. It would come out looking pretty much the same as it went in and gold as well. You know, doesn't harness and and survive the test of time pretty well. So both of those would be detectable and also pretty good pretty well preserved my word. We don't know exactly. What would be there? But we just know that we got a positive scan for something that's related to the copper scroll or something that's large nonferrous and buried deep which I can't imagine anything other than copper is called treasurer for that. If it is the ark of the covenant there. I mean that that that would be the greatest archaeological discovery of all time. Yes. Listen. I mean, people speculate about the ark of the covenant state. But one thing that I'll tell you about Jewish history is that there's a day on the calendar every year, they Jews more of differs temple the second temple. And they memorialize it. There is no such day for the ark of the covenant. The covenant is what gave the temple. It's you know, imparted. It's holiness, imparted sanctity. It was in the holiest. So really just the narrative about what happened to it. It is a race. And it's gone. But it's not the Jewish tradition. Does not say that the covenants lost, you know, even with Temple Mount movements that has recreated lots of items for the third temple. They don't recreate the arc. The arc is meant to be found. You can't you can't make an ours replica for any future temple. It has to be the original right and the third temple cannot be built without the arc. Now the ark. According to legend awesome. Destructive power the only people that can approach the arc would be the Levi's. Exactly. So Jim Barfield. You know, being a religious man has is being been very serious. He takes this very serious. And so. His meetings with the fan, drain and west the religious and institutional bodies in Israel. It's the say should this event. Take place should we be able to unseal this potential caves outside of Croom run or any of these items be on earth income Ron priests there and Israel. You know, there's there's a list Cohenim. Are they know who they are several of the Temple Mount movement study how to handle these objects and prepared said that they come. And so he had one meeting with a leader of one of the temple mountain movement people and Gershon Salomon is his name. And and he asked them should this happen. You know, Koran is not so far from trees five should this happen. How quickly could you get priest here, and and gross and said, you know, give me an hour. The code on speed dial. Wow. Let's say hi to Laura on the wildcard line. She's an upstate New York, Laura. Good morning. Welcome to coast to coast. A. Yeah. Thank you, Richard. And thank you, Shelly for fit for such an interesting conversation this evening or this morning. I just have a two things the first is I'm really sorry. George Noory has had on a lot of people over time that discussed the ark of the covenant. And there's been so much information about it. So can I ask you, please? Explain what it is what it is. And if it's found what it would look like, and then the other thing, I just wanted to mention it. It sounds like you've found it already. But in case you need to do another similar type of scan TED talks. It was a woman that came on. And did a Ted talk and actually won the Ted prize every year, they give them a price. I think it's like a million dollars or something. And it was like either last year the year before which she was using satellite to unearth archaeological finds and she. Found a whole city with the satellite and they gave the award. So you can check the Ted award show last two or three years and see who's this woman is in case, you need more information about doing these scans with satellite. And then the last thing is I've had a lot of interactions with Dow's IRS, and I found that actually they're pretty accurate with regard to finding lost objects. So someone in the scenario might wanna hire a douse or along with all the other things. But if you could just say a few words about the author of the covenant what it is. And what it would look like I'd greatly. Appreciate that. And thank you again for very informative evening. Thank you, Laura. Great call. All right. So for those not familiar with the the ark of the covenant. Tell us about it. So I said he gonna come in. It is most exceptional because we're talking about duty. Then this is a an iconic religion. It doesn't have material goods or objects of worship. It's totally forbidden. And so the covenant is really unique in that way, especially within its place and Judy ISM. But it's it's a material connection to an immaterial God. So the arc is God's throne. And it's still at an and got according to tradition. Are also had its own you know, kind of inexplicable power. It was made for vacation would gilded in gold topped with two wing tariffs. That angel's wings, stretched out over the pure gold cover the mercy seat, and a lot of people feel that even more important than the arcade cells in the construction of the it cells is that 'cause it's actually rather small ark. According to the bible, I mean, there's a little bit of discrepancy here. But it was about four feet long and two and a half feet deep. It's it's pretty small, but inside of it was placed the most is the tablets of stone with the ten commandments. And so you can see that, you know, two ways in terms of what? What's more important near the Arkansas for or what it contains? No know like I said that the copper scroll doesn't ever specifically reference? The ark of the covenant, according to some translations, it does reference gleaming chamber and one part of the copper scroll. It may be the earliest reference to FINA, which is that the spirit of God. It's really we don't have any other older references to that specific word. And usually when seen as reference it's talking about the spirit of God. And in reference to the ark of the covenant. I love what the caller pointed out. And I am familiar with the winner of that of the Ted word and amazing things are happening in our geology right now, and one thing that and archaeologists told me, you know, we had suffered from for years in terms of applying for this permit to scan and really not understanding why Jim barcode wasn't able. To get it. I mean, he he wasn't applying for himself to do this. Again, he was working with established archaeologists to were also baffled. But one of them told me, look, we're sitting here applying for this permit when and going through the old process and the procedure that exists now to do these things but truth be told. Stands can be done from the sky. Now, you know, how how how we're any antiquities at thirty is going to be able to control the future in terms of that scans can be done from satellites and from other pieces of technology. So so that really is will just be the next chapter in archaeology. We're still playing by the old rules and the and trying to apply for these things and going through that process, but but really we can do scans through satellites now. And so that's that's the future of this. What about Dow's? Let's go back to some old technology does. So Jim zone hasn't participated in that. But then they'll Jones dead. I don't know if he had much luck with it Mendel Jones. Well, he he didn't because he's passed away. And he looked for thirty years. But that was actually the next place. He was going there. Was a person professor actually out of Missouri. Who was a doubt? He he contacted Jim Barfield and so just to test that dim Barfield dead. He had bars of silver because he is tested his own. Our worst fear in the member of Knesset had volunteered to do. A scan on his own at coumarin was to get a false positive. You know, a false positive is more dangerous than a false negative in that way. And so he buried bars of silver, and and tested the metal detector that way. But he also did it once with. Basically, it was it was a it was a doubter and buried them in a park, and and Missourian, and it didn't work then it didn't work and in that case in that context. And I did work for downs either. Let's go east of the Rockies is it Helena in New Jersey, Helena, good morning. Yes. First of all I want to thank you for taking my call. And Michelle we wanna thank you very much. For most interesting presentation, I myself have a doctorate biblical studies. And I studied the Dead Sea scrolls for almost a year under Laron Shiffman. I don't know if you know him, of course, he's alleged. Yes. I must tell you every whenever I come to Israel. I come to three times a year. And I'm really mentioned his name. They can't do enough for me at the at the museum. And I also want to thank you very much for mentioning two gentlemen that I know very well, namely Moshe Fagin, and I worked for his I do volunteer work for his party. And but I think you should clarify that he was arrested for just going up to the Temple Mount. Right. Can you clarify that for us because I I would love to hear from you. First of all, I have certain prohibitions. And unfortunately as much as I personally would like to go to the Temple Mount, this is one of the reasons I don't go because the restrictions you have to walk a certain a long certain paths. You are constantly watched. Especially if you're the Jewish faith now, I have I know I go to Israel with groups that when they go up there. They're passports are confiscated and their watched like hawks. And when they return they're giving their passports. Oh, let's say you're not allowed to enter to either prayers, and obviously Mr. Fagan. Went off the path. And when I say off the path of obviously, he did attempt to pray up there and one time I believe was two years ago. He actually went into the mosque. And I hate to say this. But he actually started a little demonstration within the mosque with various members of his party. And in fact, at the time, he was banned from ascending the Temple Mount at all. But being as you said he's in the Knesset he managed to overturn the ban Halloween. Just have a couple of minutes before the break here. Do you have any comments on on the Coomer as a possible location for the contract, and it's an area? See I don't think it is. And why not I know? I personally go with various groups to come run whenever I Israel. And you as right by there is technically a checkpoint. But you probably blaze right by it. Right. I mean, it's not this isn't an area that any sort of right-thinking person believes that Israel would ever give up especially because of Koran but for the most part, it's the area. It's not it's it's not important, but there is a complex there. But. Yes. It's it's spiritually valuable, and it's to Israel. And I don't think that Israel, whatever give it up and go she ation, but. Area West Bank it separately, not areas sake. Why do you okay? Yeah. Okay. Under the under the antiquities laws..

But because of two thousand years of invaders occupations in Jerusalem being destroyed and rebuilt back up, and because we can't excavate on the Temple Mount, there's really nothing from from the ritual vessels or.

So he just takes that first line as a preamble which everyone else had always taken that line as just referring to that.

"FM. Welcome back to coast to coast AM Richard Serra coming to you from coasts in-depth, Eric Toronto Canada affiliate in-depth radio. News talk ten ten Shelley nieces with us the author of the copper scroll project before we get to another one of these central characters in this amazing story, Jim Barfield. Let's just circle back for a moment to John allegro. Who was the first to sort of decipher the the message on the copper, scroll this incredible treasure map. So what happens? I mean. I mean, obviously, he's not able to to excavate what happens and why? Well, so he wasn't able to excavate injuries on on the Temple Mount, which is a story that will keep you know, that will keep being forbidden ground for the next decades till now, but he does one of the second lines or the second locations in the copper, scroll describes so the copper scroll begins in the fortress, which is in the valley of a core. And then it goes on and say in the sepulcher monument, so Donald Michael girl identified a site called here, Kanye, which is somewhat similar to Masada more famous site in Israel. But it's basically it's one of the Herati unfortunate says that is on the top of a mountain and the Judean desert that. Jerod had built himself. You know in case the Jews ever rebelled against him. He could hide away and luxury on the top of the mountain rebellion was defeated. So here Konya with the location that had never been excavated. And it was one that John Allegra had defied that it was probably the fortress and the valley of a core that that his translation was pointing to. And so he did actually excavate at her Kanye he excavated the top of the mountain. And like I said, he's not he wasn't an archaeologist. So he proved to not really have the patient, endurance. I think people have imagined archaeology is a little bit sexier than it actually is in reality, which is really hot wrong long days, and and really just painstaking and so. He hurried the process, and he didn't he didn't excavate the site. Like, a professional would have or someone would have today. But he cleared buckets of sediment from from the top of the mountain before he left the site. You know, and he has media has pressed like he's kind of been promising something big at fast to those people that are there following him into his volunteers. And what he finds that actually at the base of her Konya were tunnels that had been filled in with two thousand years of sediment that had blown in or had you know, there's lots of flash floods in the area. And so it's pretty easy for those tunnels to have been. Selden Dan by debris over that to millennia. But he actually sees something in those tunnels because the copper scroll also mentioned steps entering to the east and the tunnels were eastward facing. And this was the portrait and the value, of course. So he kinda puts all these clues together. And he thinks that the tunnel is might be waiting to copper's called treasure. And he excavates he does take out just tons and tons of sediment. But eventually even for those two there were two tunnels two hundred yards apart eventually for both of those tunnels. He's gonna realize that it's dangerous. You know that the further down the tunnel and kind of imagine it cuts into the mountain the same way entries into the gypsum pyramids. Do it's like at a thirty five degree angle down. So the further you go down and the Friday get into the earth the more dangerous. It becomes that that it might collapse on top of you. And also just the. Less oxygen. You have the less light. And so that got more dangerous, and so he actually abandoned the task. Later on. I let grow will be retired and he'll be living in England and actually. Kind of crazy crazy pilot at airline pilot and American well read a Lagos account and just be mystified that allegro could have left those tunnels excavated in certain that he was onto the the right spot. And so he will frequent Israel and secretly dig out those tunnels for the process of fifteen years of process of a decade, really. And then he'll he'll eventually s up to the Israeli antiquity authority of what he's doing that. He'll secretly and covertly get keep excavating the tunnels for years. How is it possible? How is it possible to secretly excavate something like that? This is a huge undertaking. Totally. So he was doing it all by himself, which is super dangerous. Is it's the it's the part of the day and desert. You know, there's nobody there's no communities there. There's no one living there just bad ones might run that area. But otherwise, he would whether or not, you know, he would be find through Israel, or, you know, he's airline pilots. So he was able to take to get there pretty quickly, but he would rent a car drive the car as far as he could. And then have to walk the rest of the way on foot Konya is actually an Israel defense forces. It's it's a firing range said they practice military exercises out there. A lot of times he would have to hide in the tunnel during the daytime to be out of sight, and then using lights and other things would dig at night. I it's kind of an insane story. His name was Bob Morgan eventually though, it's going to be harder for him to get oxygen. You know, it's harder for him to he realizes that. He can't do it alone. And he approaches the Israel. He a bunch of Hebrew University. And and finds an Israeli archaeologist named orange gut failed and Orrin got filled with young at the time. And it just seems like it seems like something worth going to check out. And so he went and saw the tunnels, and he sees the along the, you know, these very unusual tunnels. I mean, what are they leading to? No, one can say, and he sees what? Bob Morgenstein, he sees what John Allegra started. And and there's little oil niches. Along the walls. I mean, just everything that would just sort of tease archaeologists to want to know, what was at the end of that tunnel. He never said that he was digging. You know, archaeologists will never say that they're digging for treasure that makes them look like a treasure hunter. Instead of an archaeologist. So you never said copper school related, but aren't got we'll spend the next eight seasons. So over the course really of another ten years excavating those tunnels until he gets to the end and at the end, it was a dead end. So all of that time all of that work three different men all haunted by the copper scroll in their own way. Excavate they cutting tunnels thinking that lead to copper, squirrel treasure. And they'd that I've met with orange got Valdez a friend at this point. And he he he says that he couldn't speak for days after Donald set ended. This is all starting to sound a little bit like the treasurer of oak island. Dead ends, and and so forth. But by the by what is the estimated value of the treasure that, we're talking about is Kennedy, even be no, no, no, you really you. Can't you can't put a price tag on it, especially since we're talking about potential temple furniture festivals. But just the precious metal alone. I mean, we're looking at gold around thirteen hundred dollars an ounce US, and we're talking about tie tons. Oh, my word. Okay. So when. When does this retired firefighter from Oklahoma City Jim Barfield, enter the the race for the copper scroll treasure. Right. So Jim Barfield is he? He's such a unique character. And I mean at this point I've been following his story for a decade of my life. And so. At once. I think in the beginning. I tried to write this story is an investigative journalist, but tried to, you know, following someone closely for ten years and not feeling, you know, like an attached cheerleader. And so yes, so he Jim Barfield is retired arson investigator from Oklahoma. What makes him really interesting is that you know, he'll self deprecating lot and say that you know, he has no formal education and the only letters behind his name or to you know, that he's certified to drive a fire truck. But in reality, he's like someone that I've never known before in terms of just very self educated. His study studied the Dead Sea scrolls in the firehouse whenever he was even just a young firemen and and killing time either on the fire tracker in the firehouse. He would be studying the Dead Sea scrolls, which you know, is not is not a normal human story. But he, and so he was actually very bored by the copper scroll because you know, there's nine hundred other that cease school manuscripts to study all of which either from the bible work ancient commentaries on the bible or ways that this sectarian sect lived at Coombe run. So super fascinating an interesting, the copper schools, a dry inventory. So it didn't have any spiritual significance for him. And so he never really gave the copper scroll much thought. But over the course of time he started to do something he called the messiah time line. And so he would read the Dead Sea scrolls, and he would plot the date that it mentioned, you know, the Dead Sea scrolls talk about the foundation of their own community book, give other historical points. And so he would just plot them on a time line chronologically, and then he would read the bible, and he would do the same with the bible prophecies, and he was just trying to figure out if he could take us his messiah timelines at that point out sort of events that would roll out like the destruction of Jerusalem, and and other things that the prophets were pointing towards and he met with Vendrell Jones Bendel Jones is the most famous in the most. Controversial of all of the copper scroll. That'll have the perhaps the inspiration for Harrison Ford's character of Indiana Jones. Exactly, exactly. So vandal Jones is a unique, you know, character in his own right 'cause they're on bucks, but any sense passed away. But then they'll Jones. Search for culprits called treasure for thirty years. And and so it was suggested to Jim to meet with Endel John's to show them his messiah timelines just as a point of reference for the Dead Sea scrolls. Well, then they'll John's with eats and breathes, the copper scroll. So he actually didn't care much about Dem's time on he just kept telling him over and over how important the copper, scroll was and how actually the copper scroll gave more history and more context than any of the other girls. And and so really after that meeting. Jim Barfield went home, not with any particular interest. And and the sites that vandal Jones had been looking at in Israel for copper Kaiser, but just sort of reinvigorated to look at the copper, scroll what some intention and the way he tells the story is that he was just in his office and and studying and and he's the kind of. Man who happened to have an aerial map of Goran on his desk. And and he gets an English translation of the copper scroll. It's one of the more well known ones by every Garcia Martinez. He has a. A book with all of that girls in English. And so so he's just looking at this very well accepted translation of the copper scroll. And he sees that the copper scroll again. According to to this translation in the valley under the ruins and the valley of a core. And. And so he just looks and he thinks, you know, the traditional and accepted place of the valley of a core. And looks for ruins in that area and thinks about ruins in that area and come runner or the most famous and the most connected to the Dead Sea scrolls. So he just takes that first line as a preamble which everyone else had always taken that line as just referring to that I location and so just right off the bat and instinctively what he did that was different that will affect the rest of his research for a decade is that he took it in the preamble of like all of the next locations listed in this squirrel will be in the ruined which is in the valley. Of course. So it's important that I gotta find that ruin and he just thought to himself. I'm going to see if the archaeological remains of Koran match the rest of the locations listed in. In the copper, scroll. And that's where it began. In other words, all of the treasure is right there in Kumaon where the scrolls were discovered. Exactly other people other scholars have thought, you know with passing reference only John allegro, actually. You know, really nail down a couple of locations that he identified with Kumaon in the copper school, certainly other scholars have thought it there seems to be matches here because because the proximity, you know, the copper scroll just found steps away from combined. It's associated with all of the other Dempsey's girls authors and owners of the Dead Sea scrolls were the F scenes who lived at home run. And so I mean, it doesn't it's it's kind of a flash of the obvious in some ways. So really what Jim Barfield was doing that was unique and new with giving a method in Iran and a reason to. How does Koran match the copper school? Exactly. And is it possible that all sixty of the locations are actually in Qom Ron and buried underneath come Ryan, or at least on the edges around Koran because because the copper scroll never takes you anywhere else after it says in the ruin which is in the valley of a core. All the all of the identification are very specific. After that, you know after that, we're just talking about dry, cisterns and wells and ritual immersion pools. And so it never really indicates that you do need to go somewhere else the very next line. And this is one of my favorites. Just right off the bat, but the copper scroll begins it says pass under the steps leading to the east forty cubits. And so it was pretty easy for Jim Barfield to look at an aerial map and say are there steps facing east and Koran and so he just orients his map for the cardinal directions of the compass, and he sees that there are steps heading east. And then he wonders well, how can I find out if those eastward facing stairs are forty cubits long?.

"This is a huge undertaking. Totally. So he was doing it all by himself, which is super dangerous. It is it's the it's the part of the day and desert. You know, there's nobody there's no communities there. There's no one living there, just you know, beduins might run that area. But otherwise, he would whether or not, you know, he would be fine through Israel. You know, he's an airline pilot. So he was able to take to get there pretty quickly, but he would rent a car drive the car as far as he could. And then have to walk the rest of the way on foot Konya is actually an Israel defense forces. It's it's a firing range. So they practice military exercises out there. A lot of times he would have to. Hi in the tunnel during the daytime to be out of sight, and then using lights and other things would dig at night. It's kind of an insane story. His name was Bob Morgan eventually though, it's going to be harder for him to get oxygen. You know, it's harder for him to he realizes that. He can't do it alone. And he approaches the Israel he alleged Hebrew University. And and finds an archaeologist named orange gut feld and Orrin got fouled with young at the time. And just seems like it seems like something worth going to check out. And so he went and saw the tunnels, and he sees that along the, you know, these very unusual tunnels. I mean, what are they leading to? No, one can say, and he sees what Bob Morgenstein he sees what John Allegra started. And there's little oil niches along the walls. I mean, just everything that would just sort of tease archaeologists to want to know, what was it the end of that tunnel. He never said that he was digging. Archaeologists will never say that they're digging for treasure. That makes them look like a treasure hunter. Instead of an archaeologist. So never said copper school related but own got. So we'll spend the next eight Dixie then so over the course really of another ten years excavating those tunnels until he gets to be end. And at the end, it was a dead end. So all of that time all of that work three different men all haunted by the copper scroll in their own way. Excavate tunnels thinking that lead to copper is treasure and made that I've met with orange Valdez friend at this point. And he he he says that he couldn't speak for days after Donald set ended. This is all starting to sound a little bit like the treasurer of oak island, dead ends, and and so forth. But by the by what is the estimated value of the treasure that, we're talking about is Kennedy, even be no, no, no. You really you? Can't you can't put a price tag on it, especially since we're talking about potential temple furniture vessels. Just the precious metal alone. I mean, we're looking at, you know, gold around thirteen hundred dollars an ounce US, and we're talking about. Oh, my word. Okay. So when. When does this retired firefighter from Oklahoma City Jim Barfield, enter the the race for the copper scroll treasure. Right. So Jim Barfield is he's such a unique character. I mean at this point I've been following his story for a decade of my life. And so at once I think in the beginning, I tried to write this story is an investigative journalist, but tried to, you know, following someone closely for ten years and not feeling, you know, like an attached cheerleader. And so yes, so he Jim Barfield is a retired arson investigator from Oklahoma. What makes him really interesting is that you know, he'll self deprecating lot and say that you know, he has no formal education, the only letters behind his name, or you know, that he started to drive a fire truck. But in reality, he's like someone that I've never known before in terms of just very self educated. His study studied the Dead Sea scrolls in the firehouse whenever he was even just a young firemen and and killing time either on the buyer tracker in the firehouse he would be studying the Dead Sea scrolls, which you know, is not not a normal human story. But he, and so he was actually very bored by the copper scroll because you know, there's nine hundred other that cease call manuscripts to study all of which either from the bible at work ancient commentaries on the bible or ways that this sectarian sex live comb run. So super fascinating and interesting, the copper, scroll the dry inventory..
