The Age of Exploration began in the early 15th century people began exploring the world crossing the seas to find new trade routes. Who doesn’t enjoy reading about the early explorers like Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus.
What was the greatest discovery ever made? Most people say the greatest discovery was fire and the wheel
In 1922 another discovery was made, a rich treasure was hidden for more than 3000 years. It was the tomb of a famous king. It was hidden in darkness and silence in The Valley of the Kings on the Nile river in Egypt— near the ancient city of Thebes.
Howard Carter a British archeologist was the first one to peer into this ancient Egyptian tomb. The resting place of a boy king, Tutankhamen, King Tut. He was buried with more than 5,000 priceless objects.
In the last 6 years of Carter searching—twice, he was only 6 feet from the stone steps leading down to the burial chamber of King Tut. How could something so valuable be hidden for SO LONG?—As great as that discovery was—it WASN’T the greatest discovery.
THE BIBLE speaks of the GREATEST discovery this earth has ever known. Jesus Said, in Matthew 13:44–46, The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden!
