This two-disc audio CD is the perfect companion to the documentary, "Tares Among the Wheat" and explains in greater detail the controversy surrounding the discovery of the Codex Sinaiticus and the claim made by the Greek paleographer, Constantine Simonides that he was in fact the true author of the manuscript -- a manuscript that is today hailed as "the world's oldest Bible."
In the year 1859, a German scholar named Constantine von Tischendorf claimed to discover the most ancient complete copy of the New Testament ever found. Tischendorf emerged with a manuscript that would be the ultimate weapon against the Protestant teaching of Sola Scriptura -- a Bible that had been re-written and corrected so many times, it would convince much of the world that the Scriptures simply could not be the immutable Word of God. To this day, when critics attack the credibility of the Bible, Codex Sinaiticus is the reason why.
Yet within a year of publishing his codex, a Greek paleographer named Constantine Simonides claimed that the manuscript was no ancient text at all, but a modern work that he had created in 1840 on Mount Athos, which was intended as a gift to the Czar of Russia. Despite the many details he gave, and the overwhelming proof in favor of his claims (not to mention the sketchy and questionable story of Tischendorf) the textual critics chose to denounce Simonides as a liar and a forger. As a result, they embraced Codex Sinaiticus as the missing link in Bible history. But was Simonides truly lying? Or was he falsely accused? Now, for the first time, the hidden details of this controversy are explored in this exhaustive presentation.
While "Tares Among the Wheat" gives an overview of the story, this follow up teaching from writer/director, Christian J. Pinto provides a more specific analysis of the claims made by Constantine Simonides, and focuses on the evidence within the manuscript itself that may eventually prove Simonides to be the true author.
Included in this Audio Presentation:
1) How Codex Sinaiticus changed the world's view of the Bible
2) How the manuscript was used to "confirm" the Vatican's Bible -- Codex Vaticanus
3) The Westcott and Hort plan to create a new Greek Bible
4) The story of Simonides in his own words
5) How Tischendorf accused Simonides of forgery and later recanted
6) Tischendorf's relationship with Rome
7) How the details given by Simonides are confirmed by the manuscript evidence
8) The mention of worm holes and why they may be significant
9) The names of Simonides' helpers found in the manuscript
10) Special markings discovered in 2007 that may be from Simonides
11) Was Simonides really a forger, or was he falsely accused?

Part five of the Secret Mysteries of America’s Beginnings series.
Since producing our series on the hidden history of America, we have been continually asked by viewers if there is a true Christian heritage to our country. Our response has always been, “yes,” but it’s just not exactly what we are told by the mainstream of the Christian community. We think the real history proves that our country was founded by God fearing men and women during the time of the Pilgrims at Plymouth and the Puritans in Massachusetts Bay. For the first 150 years, the thirteen colonies were generally governed based upon the New Testament view of the Bible. Preaching the Gospel in America was the number one reason for the Puritan Migration, and when Harvard University was founded in 1636, its original motto was “Truth for Christ and the Church.”
There is no doubt that things changed after the American Revolution, when covert groups began to take control of the government. But it is provable beyond doubt that those who fought the American Revolution saw themselves as a Christian people, who were fighting so that in America, the law of God would be king. The truth of this statement is found in many places, not the least of which is in the writings of James McHenry. McHenry was the Secretary of War under George Washington and was a signer of the Constitution. In his letters, he wrote about Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli, which stated that, the government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion. In his response, he said: “What else is it founded on? This act always appeared to me like trampling on the cross. I do not recollect that Barlow (i.e. Joel Barlow who drafted the treaty) was even reprimanded for this outrage upon the government and religion.”
Our nation’s true Christian history is undoubtedly one of struggle and conflict. It serves as a reminder to all believers of how our Lord said: “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division …” (Luke 12:54)
Please pray for this project, that we will receive wisdom and guidance from God for this work, so that it may bring forth fruit for the Lord’s sake, and for the cause of the Gospel.
