PBS has done it again very well done documentary. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

The authors of this documentary express an awful lot of confidence that they know exactly what happened 3000 years ago, but every time scientists have expressed such confidence in the past - then a new discovery has added further light, we have found the modern interpreters were totally mistaken. I am sure this documentary is no exception. I go with the original documents, not some know-it-all's overconfident guess after 3000 years.

This was a really fascinating documentary. I was really interested to learn that some Bible stories are likely true, with archeological finds to back them up, while others are likely stories created by a people who wanted a better past. I thought Stockard Channing was a strange choice for reader of the Scriptures, but she did a great job. And Liev Schreiber as narrator is always great.

God had a spouse. I think that's my favourite part of this thing, the one god creation occurred much later in the religion. This was a really interesting documentary because I'd always seen the Old Testament as a bunch of oral stories that had no basis in truth. The reality, as shown here, is that as far as the current batch of anthropologists can tell, some of the people in the bible are real and the timelines may be more or less accurate. However, the stories themselves are mostly pure fabrication as the existing evidence does not support the mass exods theory, etc. Another fascinating thing is how they are able to parse the parts down and to clearly identify the different authors of the Old Testament.

Good Documentary - Balance between bible scripture vs. archaeological fact
