Storyline

In 586 B.C., the Babylonians lead almost all that remains of the tribe of Judah - the Israelites - to exile in Babylon. Only a few generations earlier, the northern tribes of the Israelites were taken into exile and vanished forever. Now the Judeans, too, seem destined to disappear. They fight back, however, by writing a book. Using Judean stories from the past to explain present disastrous situations, the book becomes the earliest edition of the most influential work in history: the Bible. This episode introduces the early and profoundly influential figures of Judaism: Abraham, who is the first to recognize the concept of one God; Moses, who receives the Ten Commandments from God; and David, whose sins teach the Israelites that no one is above the law of God.

Who, exactly, was the intended audience for this film?
22 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Kingdom of David: The Saga of the Isrealites" is a slickly made documentary about the history of the Jews. However, early on, you learn that the makers of this film have a specific slant and agenda. They clearly see the history of the Jews in the Bible to be not at all literal but full of nice stories that may be true in some ways but obviously cannot be true. Some viewers will obviously agree with this and others, not surprisingly, would be highly offended. My feeling is whichever group you are in, why watch the film? If you cannot enjoy a film which repudiates your Bible, you won't watch the film. And, if you think the Bible is just a bunch of nice stories, then HOW can you use this same book as a basis for your history of the Jews? Just my two cents worth and I can't see this show being particularly enjoyable to either camp.
