Summary This four-part documentary series attempts to cast more light on the world's best-selling book, by analysing its history and archaeological evidence. Based on the 2002 book The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Text by Prof. Israel Finkelstein of Tel Aviv University and Neil Silberman of the Ename Centre of Public Archaeology in Belgium, this series brings together scientific findings as well as archaeological discoveries to try and cast light on whether certain aspects of biblical history are true. The investigation continues by focusing on who put the biblical texts into writing. Who were the Israelites of the Old Testament times? How did they appear in the area? What can we know of what characterises these ancient Israelites, their habits and their beliefs? This episode also looks at the fifth book of the Bible, Deuteronomy, as well as the fall of Judah and the exile of the Israelites in Babylon. (From France, in English and French, English subtitles)
