The year is 1986 and a record drought yields a long-untouched historical artifact. Two fishermen are first to spot the ancient vessel jutting out of the sand along the banks of the Galilee. Archaeologists are called to the scene and just as the boat is uncovered, a rare and brilliant double rainbow appears overhead--many believe this and other unexplainable events to be signs from God, affirming this amazing discovery. Through extensive Carbon-14 testing, the boat is scientifically proven to be 2000 years old--dating back to the exact time and place of Christ's ministry in the Galilee. Worldwide, this is the only vessel of its kind known to have survived so long in fresh waters.Could this be the boat of Jesus Christ?
