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.

Propaganda
20 August 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is yet another example of pro Jewish propaganda masquerading as history. A totally biased, one-sided attempt to portray the suffering of the Jews (which undoubtedly did happen) as a justification for the brutality of the modern state of Israel. It only interviews Jewish theologians to back-up its one-sided view without exploring the impact that the people had on others around them or showing it as part of a wider context. This did have the potential to be an excellent series as there are there are few series that cover this material. But it misses the objectivity by becoming very much a finger-waving "you must feel bad for the Jews because of this past" morality tale.If you like your history to be anything but objective,then this is the documentary for you.
