The late Vendyl Jones was a ben Noach, one who scrupulously followed the seven laws of Noah. A man of deep faith, he life was steeped in the study of the Torah and Talmud. The story of the Copper Scroll is a breathtaking real-life detective story.
With his white beard, a smile as broad as his native Texas, and bright, intelligent eyes, his charisma was exceeded only by his straight-forward honesty and sense of integrity. If you remove the first and last letters of his first name, you get Endy Jones. While Vendyl had no direct contact with the producers of the Indiana Jones films, the similarities between the movies and the work of the real Vendyl Jones is not a coincidence. The primary difference is that the real life story of Vendyl Jones is far more exciting than Harrison Ford's adventures in the films.
