NOVA’s The Bible’s Buried Secrets

The Bible’s Buried Secrets, premiering November 18 on PBS, is NOVA’s two-hour special on the history of the both the Old Testament (Tanakh) and of the Israelites through the archeological artifacts they left behind.

A powerful exploration of science, scripture, and scholarship, “The Bible’s Buried Secrets” examines the most pressing issues in biblical archeology: Who actually wrote the Hebrew Bible? Is there a real historical core to stories of Abraham, Moses and the Exodus, and King David, a warrior and writer of psalms, and his son, Solomon, who built the great temple in Jerusalem? And beyond the question of historical authenticity, what is the deeper meaning of these stories and why do they resonate today? Provocative new answers emerge from the program’s investigation of decades of literary research and archeological investigation in the Near East.
