Kingdom of David: The Saga of the Israelites

If video fails click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/04/kingdom-of-david-saga-of-israelites.html


http://www.pbs.org/empires/ - In 586 B.C., exiled Israelites write down stories of Judah.

Persecuted and slaughtered for practicing monotheism at a time when the prevailing belief was in multiple gods, the Kingdom of David kept itself united and solvent by passing along the history and traditions of its elders in written form (the “religion of the book”).

Among the subjects explored are the formation of the laws of the Jews, the origins of their customs, and their strongly held and strictly enforced moral values.

Thanks. If works on many levels -including the diaspora and return at the present time with the corollary of the ancient claim to the Promised Land.
