Kingdom of David
By the Rivers of BabylonStreaming Video - 2009
Unlike other cultures in Babylonian captivity, the ancient Judeans avoided extinction by compiling stories from their past. This program shows how those stories, which became the Hebrew Bible, helped to unite and inspire the Jewish people. In the process, the film profiles influential figures of Judaism: Abraham, progenitor of single-God worship; Moses, custodian of the Ten Commandments; and David, whose transgressions helped to clarify the universality of God's law.
