Mysteries of the Bible
Mysteries of the Bible is a television series that explores the many stories and tales as described in the Holy Bible. The locations are actually filmed in the Holy Land and all of the newest scientific research is used to try to solve some of the mysteries that have gone unanswered. With actual footage from locations described in the bible the film takes many different stories and unfolds them using biblical scholars and archeological facts.
There is no one set religious view here but Jewish and Christian thoughts are both explored with interviews by scholars of both faiths. Then there are the archeologists who use many modern day technologies as well.
Narrated by Richard Kiley and Jean Simmons, one of the episodes explores biblical angels and just what their role was. Many biblical scholars believe that angels had a large role especially in the days of the Old Testament. There is one episode about this subject alone. They talk about when Abraham was going to deliver his son as a sacrifice and the voice of an angel stopped him. Then in the New Testament another angel spoke to the Virgin Mary about having a child named Jesus. Satan himself was an angel. But many modern day scientists take a look at these stories and disclaim them describing how it wouldn't be possible.
Archeologists discuss if the areas spoken about in the bible are historically accurate. Some thought the piles of dirt found in some areas were just that, dirt piles. Mounds of ruins that are thought to be just waste land was found through modern research to be ancient cities. By studying these areas, the series explores if the ruins could be from the times of the biblical era.
Even ordinary men have found ancient scriptures by accident, like the shepherd who found what is known as the Dead Sea scrolls and the show explores if these are the real deal or just a series of things that can be explained by science. This series explores many points of view through entertaining and fascinating archives and technologies as they are researched from a modern day standpoint.
