Noah's Ark has been something explorers have been working to uncover for thousands of years, but few have been able to fully explore the one place specifically noted in the Bible. A team of archeologist, with a film crew behind, made the treacherous journey.
The documentary to show off their find is set to debut nationwide next month.
Newschannel 6 caught up with two of the men, who also have strong ties to Texoma. "We want to know the answers to the past and there are questions we still have about those things. "Finding Noah" documents, why we go and do these things. Also why, this group of men goes up this mountain, really at great risk." said Dr. Aaron Judkins. Dr. Judkins works as a flight nurse with the Wichita Falls Air Evac Lifeteam by night, and is an archeologist by day. He is in front of the camera in the film as an Associate Producer.
Pastor Bruce Hall was on the drill team in the find, and is working on his PhD Biblical Archeology.
Both say while the goal was to find the Ark, it was also about the journey that got them there.
"They call it, 'Agri Dagh', the painful mountain. I can tell you it's very painful going up that mountain." said Dr. Judkins.
"Even on the last leg when you see the plaque of everyone who has passed away, from here on up, it's very surreal that a lot of people that make this journey don't come home alive." said Pastor Hall.
Both say it was a risk worth taking, and hope their adventure of faith, helps others conquer their own personal mountain
