I put the word ‘biblical’ in sarcastic quotes as I highly doubt the content will be biblical or even true. The title is not new or original as I checked youtube and found several programs with the exact words, though not all are in the same order as the History channel’s effort. The new show is called: Bible Secrets Revealed
I mentioned this over at Cargill’s site and he deleted the comment. They can’t answer or explain why the plagiarism took place so they avoid the issue by deleting the insight. i also tried every link at his site and searched both History channel’s and Prometheus’ websites and could not find any page that carried the details of the new series.
I am betting that 98% of the scholars involved are not true Christians and they all know nothing about the Bible. What the viewer will be treated to is a scholar’s opinion of what the Bible is saying and not what it is really saying to the world. The following quote supports my point of view:
Please tune in to this documentary, which seeks to address difficult biblical scriptures and teachings in a responsible, academic, yet entertaining manner. The series is certain to be compelling as much for its scholarship as for its examination of secrets buried deep within the biblical texts, that have often traditionally been known only to scholars.
The bold words make me laugh as they do not know any secrets to the Bible that anyone else doesn’t know and it contradicts what Jesus said in the book of John:
16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another [b]Helper, that He may be with you forever; 17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. (14:16 & 17 NASB)
13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; (16:13a)
Scholars and Academics are not the source of truth nor are the final authority on what the Bible says. If they do not believe God then they do not have the spirit of truth and they do not know the truth. So if you watch this series do so with the help of the Holy Spirit so you can see and avoid the lies these scholars will say.
I do encourage you to watch this series because if you want to refute unbelievers thinking and correct their misconceptions then you have to know what they are saying and believing. Then you have to work with God to find the right responses to their points of view.
Here is the link to the schedule of shows in the series and if you can’t watch at those times try to tape them o you can see how far off the secular world is when it comes to the Bible.
