Item description for Biblical Collectors V 3/Biblical OT Mysteries (Biblical Collectors #3) by Charles Sellier...
Overview Digitally Mastered Picture and Sound ? Digital Surround 5.1 Audio ? NTSC Color ? Approximately 60 minutes each disc The southern end of the Dead Sea is believed to be the ancient land of Canaan site of the legendary cities of sin--Sodom and Gomorrah. According to the Bible, these cities, along with three others, were destroyed by fire and brimstone. But did these cities even exist? Were there really two cities called Sodom and Gomorrah. . . so wicked they were utterly demolished by God? Has evidence been found that finally proves the biblical account and actually pinpoints the exact site of these five cities? Archaeological discoveries include the findings of actual bodies encased in salt, as the Bible states in Genesis. Join us as we shed new light on an age-old argument: were Sodom and Gomorrah real cities or moralistic myths?
Some of the animosity in the world today can be traced to a single event related in the Bible: the confusion of language and the dispersion of the races at the Tower of Babel. But was there ever such a tower to begin with? And if there was . . . has it really been found in ancient Babylon? Can we actually confirm that there was a time in the distant past when everyone spoke the same language and essentially belonged to the same race? Do the modern sciences of linguistics, sociology and archaeology tell us that a common language and common ancestry all arise from a single place on earth and a single point in time? Surprising answers to this age-old mystery will connect you to your past and the sociopolitical problems in many parts of the world today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Biblical Collectors V 3/Biblical OT Mysteries?
Alright, But Full of Speculation. Nov 1, 2006
"Ancient Secrets of the Bible" is a series of videos that examines various people, places, and items from the Bible (the only exemption being the Shroud of Turin). The videos are kind of like documentaries because of the interviews, illustrations, documents, etc. that are connected by a narrator. However, about one-third to one-half of the tapes consists of dramatizations. Some of these scenes add to the overall documentary feel, while some of the scenes seriously distract from the main purpose and make the tape seem more like a bad Sunday School presentation. The videos do try to be fair in their approach by having interviews from both people who support the existence of the person, place or item being examined as well as interviews from people who deny the existence of the person, place, or item in question. The videos also tend to rather ambiguously, leaving the viewer to decide for themselves rather it's fact or fiction.
In this episode of the series, the filmmakers examine the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel. About half of the episode involves interviews and a look at other historical and archeological evidence and the other half of the tape consists of re-enactments. According to the filmmakers, the Tower of Babel was built by the Biblical Nimrod. This is an idea that many people believe, but the Bible doesn't say who built the Tower of Babel. It just mentions the location of the structure. It is true that the location, matches up with a list of territories the Bible says Nimrod was to have ruled, but other than that there is no indication that Nimrod was responsible for the building of the Tower of Babel.
TOWER OF BABEL--FACT OR FICTION isn't all that entertaining or informative. There are some interesting scenes of archeological work going on in parts of Iraq, but this is about the most interesting piece in the tape. There really isn't much information given and much of what is discussed is pure speculation (e.g. that Nimrod built the famous tower). Some of the suggested re-enactments are entertaining, but many of them on the tape are cheesy and over-the-top. The funniest thing on the tape happens toward the very end when an actor portraying Saddam Hussein is shown and the tape suggests that Saddam is planning to re-build or perhaps, has already begun re-building the Tower of Babel.
Overall, this tape isn't as interesting as other parts of the series. There is a little factual information contained within and there is a small audience who might really enjoy this episode. However, because of the numerous speculations the episode contains, I cannot suggest it for anyone who is series about studying the Bible.
Yes, these are documentaries Aug 6, 2006
Yes, these are documentaries with some portions of re-enactments, but that does not make them tacky! They are very well done and quite fascinating to watch! It helpd strengthen your trust in the Bible! Great for homeschoolers or anyome studying Biblical or ancient history.
Absolute Trash Aug 1, 2005
Zero stars. Not for the material covered in the video tapes, but for the fact that the videos are unplayable.
I own a brand new DVD/VHS player and these tapes would not track properly no matter what I did. The sound was fudged as well.
This is quite possibly the worst quality product I have ever purchased in my life. Do not waste your money. I wouldn't trust the DVD version either. I could have cleaned up this junk with my home PC movie software in an hour and put out a better product, and that is scary.
Intriguing viewpoint Jun 14, 2005
You can look up the individual reviews. Of course some individual titles will go out of stock. Others may not be your favorite. However you will have friends and relatives that will want to compare various stories. This is not an evaluation of the content. A single case makes the movies easier to keep track of and look better on your video storage wall. Being DVDs this is a one-time investment. With the advent of multiple DVD changers you will be able to keep Secrets ready at a moments notice. Buying them individually can be expensive. Dive right in and buy the collection
Well done insight to Biblical study! Dec 24, 2004
I find the "Ancient Secrets of the Bible" a very helpful tool in providing a very reasonable scientific expalanation to some of the stories in Scripture. My students ranging from 3rd grade to university level have been able to follow the contents of the program without difficulty. I do hope the company will continue to produce more of this kind of videos. I am a Catholic priest and a university campus ministry chaplain. I highly recommend this set to anyone studying Scripture at any educational level. It provides a good response to those seeking to reconcile both faith and reason. And for those who already believe in the Bible, it provides an added affirmation to one's faith.
