Go on a scientific journey to the beginnings of modern religion, and dig into both the Bible and the history of the Israelites through the artifacts they left behind. The film focuses on the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament) as the foundation for the great monotheistic religions--Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This powerful exploration of science, scripture, and scholarship examines the most pressing issues in biblical archaeology.

This beautifully filmed documentary dates a hymn beloved by our family, The Lord Bless You And Keep You, to a prayer at least as old as the 7th century b.c. I look forward to hearing more results as the archaeological dig of the city walls of Jerusalem progresses.

I just watched the documentary. Although it's research and assertions were more "fair" than many that deal with ancient origins of religion, this is not saying much. What this show failed to do like others was present a more balanced view of ancient Egypt and its "actual" beliefs of religion. Although the modern egyptological view that "ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Greece to name a few worshipped many Gods," is promoted like it is itself the gospel truth, there are "many" who disagree with this notion altogether. These lands did "not" worship many Gods. They believed in the concept of "One God" and Ancient Egypt/Kemet developed the concept originally. The believed that this "One God" manifests in everything we see, touch, taste, feel and hear. Everything to them was/is a manifestation of this "One God." There are many who share this view. Joseph Cambell and Dr. Muata Ashby are two of them. So the documentary was biased as it attempted to give the benefit of the doubt to the Isralites as being the originators of the "One God" principle when in fact the only evidence if any to substantiate this was circumstantial at best.

Entertaining and teaching

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Bible's Buried Secrets DVD:

People make a mistake to expect to find literal truth in scripture, but this program explains connections that scientific and historical investigation has established to place the biblical narrative in a new context. This program taught me, graduate student in biblical studies, as well as would effectively engage my public high school students.

Excellent Job

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Bible's Buried Secrets DVD:

While there are small lapses of information (such as Nebuchadnezzar not given as leading the Persian Army as Emperor of Persia when taking Judea)this is a fine job of explaining the Archeological evidences found up to date. Only caution is that they ARE Archeologists, and other scholars need to be used from other sources on such topics as the linguistic evidences of age and dating via languages.

Having the whole laundry list of degrees in theology and 39 years into ordained mainstream ministry, I was very much impressed with the professional integrity of this outstanding presentation. Well done Nova! And I'm glad to see my PBS dollars of support well placed too!
