In this landmark two-hour special, NOVA takes viewers on a fascinating scientific journey to the beginnings of modern religion.

The Bible’s Buried Secrets vividly recounts the saga of the ancient Israelites and digs deeply into both the Bible and the history of the Israelites through the archaeological artifacts they left behind.

The documentary focuses on the Hebrew Bible, also known as the Old Testament, as the foundation for the great monotheistic religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

NOVA’s producers worked with an international team of scholars and researchers who studied stories, examined artifacts, deciphered ancient manuscripts, and hypothesized how—in a time of human sacrifice, idolatry, and slavery—the concept of one God emerged.

    This documentary like most on PBS is a fancy distortion of science, scripture and truth. I would highly recommend that you disregard this lame documentary and read the Bible for yourself. Read the Bible with a willingness to examine the evidence impartially. You will come to know the truth only if you are willing to know the truth. And what is the Truth? The truth is that the Bible contains within itself the proof that it is true. And once you begin to see the evidence that it is true you will have to conclude that it is all true. Or you can believe that we popped up out of nowhere from nothing?

    I have read the passages mentioned in this documentary and I have to say this documentary makes a lot more sense than the Bible ever did. Joshua being able to destroy and conqure all those places in his life time? There are lots of untruths in the Bible. I suggest you read it again with impartially before pointing to a BOOK and saying “this can only be truth.” It’s paper. The words easily changed as they have been for centuries.

    Ram911,… You sound like jut another ignorant, uneducated, naive right wing Christian….. You put the blinders on when you hear anything that does’;t agree whole-heartedly with the Bible. People like you are dangerous as history has proven time and time again.

     People believed in crazy stories in ancient civilization because they didn’t know any better… In this day and age through science, we have the ability to vast amounts of knowledge, and those of us with brains can make decisions based on facts not fiction….. it doesn’t mean we all don’t want to believe in God or a higher power, but the fact is, Jesus may just have simply been a great man and prophet and not a God….. that scares people like you because you are weak minded and have to follow what others tell you….

    PS… I’m Catholoic, but not an Idiot.
