A Journey Through Jude (5 of 8)
The Identity of an Imposter
Steve Wager
Jude 8-13

1. IN THE EARLY 1920'S, A MAN BY THE NAME OF HOWARD CARTER
DISCOVERED THE TOMB OF KING TUT. WHEN HE FINALLY BROKE INTO THE
TOMB IN ONE OF EGYPT'S RICHEST KINGS, HE FOUND THE CASKET, WHICH WAS
CALLED THE CIRCAPHACIST. IT WAS A VERY LARGE, WEIGHTY PIECE OF WORK.
2. WHEN HE OPENED THE COFFIN, INSIDE OF IT WAS ANOTHER COFFIN COVERED
