FILM: The Bible’s Buried Secrets (2008)
110 min. A powerful intersection of science, scholarship, and scripture, this landmark documentary from the PBS NOVA series presents the latest in archaeological scholarship and explores some of the biggest questions in biblical studies: Where did the ancient Israelites come from? Who wrote the Hebrew Bible, when and why? How did the worship of one God—the foundation of modern Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—emerge?
