Josh Cohan, a work-obsessed archaeology professor, has a recurring dream about uncovering a great secret. He follows his instincts to the Judean desert, where he makes a fantastic discovery -- an ancient scroll which seems to have been written by Jesus Christ. The Israel Antiquities Authority has a claim on the scroll, but another, more sinister organisation wants the scroll as well. The Guardians, members of an ancient extremist religious sect, are willing to kill to get what they want. Josh joins the government-sponsored team of translators who believe the scroll might be genuine, and falls in love with Danielle, the fiery daughter of one of the translators. When a friend turns up dead and Danielle goes missing, Josh realises that the scroll might be more powerful and controversial than he had ever imagined. Will Josh be able to prevent something terrible from happening to the woman he loves without giving up the most important discovery mankind has ever made?
