Storyline

In one of the most hostile lands on the planet, an ancient people called the Israelites forged an army and carved out an empire. Their ancient military exploits are described in one of history's most famous religious texts; the old testament of the Bible. But by reading between the religious lines, ancient military historians unlock the soldier's secrets of the bible by examining the weapons, the strategies; and the commanders, some of whom are unlikely warriors, like Abraham, Moses, and Deborah. Bible Battles is a two hour hi-definition special that explores the biblical world from a military perspective from the time of Abraham, approximately 1500 BC, until David's ascension to the throne, around 1000 BC. Using graphic battle re-creations choreographed by a Hollywood sword master, Bible Battles brings to life some of the most famous stories of the Bible, like the Exodus, the battle of Jericho, and David's fight against Goliath; as well as more obscure stories like Abraham's surprise...

Trivia

When Jonathan raids the Philistine camp in the 2 versus 20 fight, Jonathan (Brian Danner) throws his shield at an oncoming Philistine. That Philistine soldier is also played by Brian Danner. The scene was edited together using a quick pan and separate wardrobe, hair and make-up. See more »

Intriguing look at biblical military history
26 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Abraham and Moses...not only spiritual leaders but generals as well. A fascinating look at the state of military tactics and technology in the biblical era. The analysis of the conflicts described in the Bible from a historical/military perspective helps bring to life that portion of the text. it also offers a new appreciation of the state of affairs in Israel at the time. The additional asides on how such tales were also employed by modern commanders (Monty in WWII for example), enhances their relevance to the present day in ways more than historical or spiritual.

The film describes not only the Israelites but their chief opponents, with a description of their likely weapons and tactics. Reconstructions of combats based on the biblical descriptions help bring alive this look at a people in a strategic & economically important area awash in conflict with their neighbors. Definitely recommended viewing for a look at just what parts of the biblical texts may be describing when it speaks of the battles of Saul or Gideon's raid.
