Historical Reductionism. A piece of junk

Rather than sharing what the biblical authors claimed happened, from the very get-go, the Jewish scriptures are assumed to be made up with no evidence supported to substantiate that claim. From that foundation, Scripture is acknowledged to be "morally edifying" but not "authoritative" nor even "accurate." Theories trying to get behind the Biblical authors' intent in writing these fabricated tales are treated as totally true, though they are just unsubstantiated theories. Meanwhile, the claims that the biblical authors were writing an accurate history of past events is dismissed out of hand and those who might believe such a thing are laughed out of the room as childish, not even given a hearing.

This is pure propaganda. Historical documents are dismissed as fiction while modern theories seeking to undermine Scriptures claim to authority are treated as fact.

I do not recommend this series in any way whatsoever.

Wiki

Kingdom of David: The Saga of the Israelites tells the epic story of the Jews and the creation of the world's first and most profoundly influential monotheistic religion. The stories of the patriarch Abraham, the liberator Moses, the poet-king David and his son Solomon all come to life in the dramatic tale of loss and triumph that shaped humanity's basic moral struggle for more than three millennia.
