Overview

The "testament" of the title is actually twofold; it refers to the Old and New Testaments of the Christian scriptures. Operating on the thesis that the Bible has influenced western civilization more than any other volume in history, excavator John Romer undertakes a thorough and exhaustive exploration of the historical roots of that book in light of recent archaeological findings. He travels to such pivotal cities as Jerusalem, Jericho and Nazareth, asking questions such as who wrote the Bible, how the story of creation itself originated, and what archaeology itself conveys about Biblical figures including Abraham, Moses and Jesus of Nazareth. This set contains all seven complete original episodes, with bonus features including a 20-page viewer's guide, a feature called "Bearers of the Word" that presents biographies of major figures in Biblical development, and a host of web extras.
