“Who Wrote the Bible” is a documentary about Dr. Robert Beckford’s search for the real authors of the Holy Bible. The documentary covers both Old and New Testaments. It raises many compelling questions: was Moses the author of the first books of the Old Testament, is the Bible historically accurate, was it translated properly, and were the authors of the New Testament eye witnesses to Jesus’ life? He examines how the political and religious climates of the day influenced the authors of each text. He interviews many theologians who have studied the writing style and original text of each of the documents. Finally, he scrutinizes how the final book was assembled, and what was left out. Dr. Beckford’s journey takes him across the globe. He visits Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Ephesus, Rome, and even modern churches in both England and the United States. He approaches the question of who wrote the Bible from an academic view, but it is tempered by his own Christian beliefs and upbringing.
