The Bible Unearthed (The Documentary) – Part III


“Prof. Israel Finkelstein & Neil Silberman, Two of archaeology’s leading scholars shed new light on how the Bible came into existence. They assert, for example, that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob never existed, that David and Solomon were not great kings but obscure chieftains and that the Exodus never happened.”

Israel Finkelstein

For the first time, the true history of ancient Israel as revealed through recent archaeological discoveries-and a controversial new take on when, why and how the Bible was written. In the past three decades, archaeologists have made great strides in recovering the lost world of the Old Testament. Dozens of digs in Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Lebanon have changed experts’ understanding of ancient Israel and its neighbours- as well as their vision of the Bible’s greatest tales.Yet until now, the public has remained almost entirely unaware of these discoveries which help separate legend from historical truth. Here, at last, two of archaeology’s leading scholars shed new light on how the Bible came into existence. They assert, for example, that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob never existed, that David and Solomon were not great kings but obscure chieftains and that the Exodus never happened.

They offer instead a new historical truth: the Bible was created by the people of the small, southern nation of Judah in a heroic last-ditch attempt to keep their faith alive after the demise of the larger, wealthier nation of Israel to the north. It is in this truth, not in the myths of the past, that the real value of the Bible is evident.

The Bible is both a religious and historical work, but how much is myth and how much is history? When and why was the Old Testament written, and by whom? What do contemporary archaeologists know about the Patriarchs? The Exodus? The Conquest of Canaan? Kings David and Solomon? Where do the people of Israel originally come from? Why were the historical accounts of the Bible written down?

A masterful archaeological and biblical investigation, The Bible Unearthed visits digs in Egypt, Jordan and Israel – including Megiddo, the cradle of biblical archeology, where 7,000 years of history have been excavated.

This far-ranging exploration of biblical history also makes use of archival footage of previous archaeological excavations, maps, biblical illustrations and computer animation, revealing ancient architecture, cuneiform tablets and other rare artifacts.

Based on the best-selling book (The Bible Unearthed) by prominent Israeli archeologist Israel Finkelstein & coauthored by American historian Neil Asher Silberman, this enthralling documentary features interviews with archaeological specialists and biblical scholars from all over the world, including experts from the Louvre, the Museum of Cairo, the Museum of Jerusalem, and the British Museum.

The Bible Unearthed does something which has never been done before: it reveals a still-unraveling revolution of what we know of the society, the history, and the men who wrote the Bible.

  1. well glad to see they are an exception to the rule. which is why I allways say,when soem one of a group delivers information that is true even though it may go against their so called chieftans then they are to be very acclaimed with huzzas and ghee . exodus did happen but it was a matter of them being chased out after 200 years of pillage and tyranny over the egyptians.hyksos period i unnerstand.

  2. …even more compelling is the fact that 199% of so-called “Jews” are not Israelites.

    More to the point is the elemental oozing from the Talmud, the undisputed source of chutzpah, identity theft, mass murder, and an unending string of “Jewish” lies…the origin of Bad Faith,

    Jesus said it best @ John 8:44…and He wasn’t speaking YIDDISH !

  3. It seems that Ahmenhotep 111 was the actual “Solomon – he was wise and brilliant and peace reined while he was King, and Ahmed Osman thinks that “David” was actually Thutmose 111.

    The Jews used – stole actually, from the mythology of all the cultures around them, especially the Egyptians.

    They had and have no culture of their own and seem always to go around “borrowing” from that of other People.

    It is strange. They have no heroes of their own, no mythical tradition, no actual religion or spiritual tradition.

    All they have is a cult tying them up psychologically, tightly and uncomfortably, in a deadly dead end materialism.

    No wonder they are psychopathic. Their “leaders”, since the time of the “sinister Levites” as Douglas Reed calls them have had them cruelly enslaved , permanently psychologically crippled, full of fear an suspicion and with nothing but blood sacrifices and mumbo jumbo to rely on!

    They really do love their blood sacrifices – always have, and it seems they are getting ready to “sacrifice” lots more of us.

    I am very tired and bored with them. When one has a psychological problem (such as psychopathy ) it is necessary to take responsibility for it and get oneself cured or healed – and one has no right to go around inflicting oneself on the rest of mankind, all seven or eight billion of us.

    They have even purloined Jesus! Christianity was the spiritual tradition of the ancient Egyptians!!! I will repeat it here in case it is useful to anyone:

    IUSA the KRST was born on the 25th. December (the Winter Solstice), of a Virgin called IsisMery.
    He taught in the Temple at age 12. He was baptised at age 30 by Anup the Baptiser. Anup the Baptiser was beheaded. He he had 12 companions. He healed the sick and raised the dead and walked on water. He was crucified, died and was buried in a tomb of rock and he was resurrected.

    It ALL came from the Egyptians. Is that why a mob who have been called “christians” destroyed the great Library (actually more than one building) in Alexandria?

    That Christianity had nothing whatsoever to do with Hebrews or Jews seems to me to be a very important matter for the World to know at this time.

    Besides – it is all so strange!

  4. Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness: Genesis 1:26-27

    Without the Holy trinity, one can never understand the Bible. It is a Christian book.
