Overview

Golden Globe nominated actor Leiv Schreiber narrates this feature-length documentary taking viewers on a remarkable scientific journey that began 3000 years ago, and presents findings that stand as the culmination of over 100 years of excavation and centuries of biblical scholarship. By delving deep into the origins of the Old Testament, archeologists attempt to find answers to such timeless questions as where the ancient Israelites came from, who wrote The Bible, and why the world that was once polytheistic began a gradual movement towards monotheism. As the biblical texts continue to resonate through history, The Bible's Buried Secrets takes viewers to the intersection of scholarship, science, and scripture in order to explore the questions that Christians and theologians have been asking for centuries.

    I Also Recommend:

    THIS IS AN INSIGHT TO THE ARTHURS AND ORGINS OF THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE OLD TESTAMENTS. WHETHER YOU BELIEVE THE INFORMATION IS NOT THE MAIN SUBSTANCE OF THIS VIDEO, BUT UNDERSTANDING WHEN DID THE HEBREW LANGAUGE BECOME A WRITTEN MEDIUM!

    Some items where repetative, probably to fill in the time. The information is informative and useful to the understanding of the structure of the first five books of the Bible!
