Volume 10 , Issue 2 Winter Pages It was first conceived—as recent archaeological findings suggest—during the span of two or three generations, about twenty-six hundred years ago. Its birthplace was the kingdom of Judah , a sparsely settled region of shepherds and farmers, ruled from an out-of-the-way royal city precariously perched in the heart of the hill country on a narrow ridge between steep, rocky ravines.
At its core was a sacred scripture of unparalleled literary and spiritual genius. It was an epic saga woven together from an astonishingly rich collection of historical writings, memories, legends, folk tales, anecdotes, royal propaganda, prophecy, and ancient poetry. Partly an original composition, partly adapted from earlier versions and sources, that literary masterpiece would undergo further editing and elaboration to become a spiritual anchor not only for the descendants of the people of Judah but for communities all over the world.
The historical core of the Bible was born in the bustle of the crowded streets of Jerusalem , in the courts of the royal palace of the Davidic dynasty, and in the Temple of the God of Israel. They embarked on a vigorous campaign of religious purification in the countryside, ordering the destruction of rural shrines, declaring them to be sources of evil.
This episode then takes a closer look at Kings David and Solomon. What do we actually know about them? And what of the two Israelite kingdoms situated on the territory of Canaan: Israel to the north, rich and powerful, and Juda, to the south, small and poor. What role will the antagonism between these two 'friendly' kingdoms play in the writing of the Bible? What is the King of Juda, Josias's ambition after the destruction of the kingdom of Israel to the north?
How does the death of Josias, a descendant of King David, bring about the emergence of the third "pillar" of Judaism: the Messianic idea?
Episode 4: The Book The investigation now turns to the people who put the biblical texts down on paper. Who were the original Israelites?
How did they appear in the region? What part did the sudden emergence in the Levant of the Peoples of the Sea play in the birth of the Israelite nation? What can we find out about what characterized the original Israelites, their customs and beliefs; the reform which led to the writing of the Bible's fifth Book, Deuteronomy; the place of the writing in the birth, for the first time in these societies, of an authoritative text, the Bible; and the fall of Juda and the Israelites' Exile in Babylon?
This four-part series thus 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. William Dando, Chairperson, Bible Geography Specialty Group, Association of American Geographers "An honest look at how archaeological evidence is used to replace old theories with new ones about when and why the Bible was written… It takes great skill to convey complex ideas in an exciting way… The archival stills and footage of early archaeologists are excellent and the aerial photography is also quite good.
Barako, Near Eastern Archaeology "Provides a sorely needed balance in the meager market of biblical archaeological offerings… demonstrates how scholars attempt to critically relate the findings in the field with the written text.
