Format: DVD
This is a most interesting documentary centering on the provenance of three small fragments of papyri which have the potential – depending on the date assigned to their origin – to reinforce the historical accuracy of the Gospels by dating the time of their origins to the first few decades following the crucifixion of Christ – in other words, this could be proof that the Gospel of Matthew in particular was written by someone who witnessed the words and deeds of Jesus Christ with his own eyes. I found it somewhat strange that I had never heard of these fragments or the debate surrounding their origin, but this could be in large part due to the fact that most Biblical scholars continue to date the fragments to sometime around 200 A.D.

In 1901, while serving as the chaplain at the Luxor Hotel in Egypt, Rev. Charles B. Huleatt purchased three pieces of papyrus fragment in a Luxor market, having recognized the obvious old age of the fragments and identifying the pieces of text as coming from the Gospel of Matthew. Huleatt personally thought the fragments originated two or three centuries after Christ but forwarded his find to his alma mater, Magdalen College in Oxford, England, for further study. An expert dated them to 200 A.D. or thereabouts, at which point the fragments were put in a display case in a remote section of the library and basically forgotten about for decades – until 1995, when German scholar Carston Peter Thiede began a study that would lead to his conclusions that these fragments were written less than forty years after the crucifixion.

HASH(0x8d005084) out of 5 stars A Game Changer! 30 Dec. 2011
By D. L. Childress - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This documentary is well produced, the imagery is beautiful and the claims of the authors and guests are nothing short of astounding. Scholars have long known the Bible is the most accurate work from antiquity known to man. The assertions of authenticity proposed in this work move Biblical claims from well documented facts to virtual eyewitness certainty. Muslim, Hindu, Atheist, Agnostic, Cultural Christians, Religious Christians and Christians all need to familiarize themselves with the importance of the "Magdalene Papyrus." This DVD is a good place to begin. Right or wrong, true or false the implications of this work will change the way the world understands the Bible forever. The rules of the game have been changed! Do yourself a favor and become an informed player in the game of life!

What a refreshing video. In today's age of doubters and cynics there are thankfully a few Carston Thiede's left in the world. The integrity of the gospel writers is always trashed and scoffed at and it's aim is always to undermine belief. Thiede pushes back against this onslaught with an astonishingly significant discovery. This is a must see video and is done so well. Thanks Amazon for putting this on the Prime video side. I would have never run into it without ya!

HASH(0x8d89f99c) out of 5 stars Matthew fragment 29 April 2013
By Edwin D. Ricketts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Well done documentary. I love when they do a good science and logic based documentaries to supplement faith. This video lends support to the view that the Bible is accurate and thus supplements faith but does not replace it. Good job on this one.
HASH(0x8d6b5abc) out of 5 stars Riveting! A Must-See Film for every serious scholar. 30 May 2015
By Susan McIntyre - Published on Amazon.com
Riveting from the start. Well done! I first saw this on Netflix and, as an investigative journalist myself, I was hooked. This guy crossed all the 't's and dotted all the 'i's. It is a very compelling study of the authenticity of Matthew's chronicles of Christ.

Far too many Christian documentaries skew the facts in order to fit their narrative - which, if you truly are a Christian - you would be exploring the Truth and not trying to invent it. If the Truth is what we are after, it will stand on its own. If it doesn't (and I'm thinking of the documentary on Noah's Ark made several years ago) then it will crumble, as well it should.

This film is a must-view in every single Bible study group across the globe. It gives ammunition to arguments often slung disputing if Christ even existed at all - which, curiously enough, is not an argument they use against Socrates who, like Christ, never wrote a word himself, and whose existence is known only through the writings of his disciples. Curious, that.
HASH(0x8d742324) out of 5 stars Important documentary 11 Jun. 2014

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This video documentary won't appeal to many and it is a little slow moving but it is exciting to a scholar like me.
