Robert Feather is a metallurgist, engineer, journalist, and scholar of world religions. He is the founding editor of The Metallurgist, editor of Weighing and Measuring, and the author of The Mystery of the Copper Scroll of Qumran and The Secret Initiation of Jesus at Qumran. He lives in London.
The Dead Sea Scrolls comprise the oldest collection of Biblical documents ever discovered. None has baffled experts more than the 2,000-year-old Copper Scroll discovered in 1952, apparently a list of buried treasure. The author's findings reveal locations of many of the treasures.
Robert Feather presents persuasive evidence of the strong link between the Qumran Essenes and New Testament teachings, and that John the Baptist and Jesus were intimately involved in the Qumran community. He further claims that early Christianity incorporated a form of monotheism derived from the Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten, uniquely espoused by the Essenes at Qumran.
