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... Written by David W. Padrusch, Producer/Director

Frustrating for christians AND skeptics
3 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

These types of documentaries are the most frustrating of all, for both christians AND skeptics.

God is taken out of the equation as 'scholars' attempt to theorize other reasons for God's supposed miracles. For example, an easterly wind was blowing and that's what caused the tide of the "Reed" sea (sic) to recede and allow Moses to cross. Aside from failing to explain why they call it the "Reed" sea, even though the Bible says "Red" and there's evidence that Red and Reed were one and the same, their theories smack of poor investigation and poor scriptural exegesis. Instead of trying to mold God's miracles into some humanistic explanation, how about getting to the point and discussing whether the crossing actually occurred at all? Or discussing the total lack of evidence there is of Israelites wandering around in the desert for 40 years?

It's like wasting all your time theorizing the physics of whether Zeus could actually throw lighting bolts, instead of getting to the point that the evidence shows he likely doesn't exist in the first place.

Why dismiss God's actions in the biblical story, yet accept the rest of the scripture as gospel truth?

At the end of the day, this type of documentary helps no one. Skeptics are not provided with sound evidence against the biblical stories, and christians are not provide with any honest evidence that their stories are true.

I stopped watching this documentary part-way through, it was just awful.
