Kingdom of David: The Book and the Sword [electronic resource]

Returning to Jerusalem from Persian-controlled Babylon, a scribe named Ezra started a tradition that became a core aspect of Jewish life-reading and interpreting the scriptures. This program examines historical examples of Jewish responses to cultural and military threats-such as when Alexander the Great invaded the Middle East in 330 B.C. and when the Greek king Antiochus IV forbade the practice of Judaism, provoking the Maccabean revolt.

Kingdom of David: By the Rivers of Babylon [electronic resource]

Unlike other cultures in Babylonian captivity, the ancient Judeans avoided extinction by compiling stories from their past. This program shows how those stories, which became the Hebrew Bible, helped to unite and inspire the Jewish people. In the process, the film profiles influential figures of Judaism: Abraham, progenitor of single-God worship; Moses, custodian of the Ten Commandments; and David, whose transgressions helped to clarify the universality of God's law.

Kingdom of David: The End of Days [electronic resource]

With his invasion of Judea in 63 B.C., the Roman general Pompey began a brutal colonial conflict-prompting open rebellion as well as fierce debate among Jewish factions about their future. This program illustrates the impact of the ancient Roman occupation of the Holy Land: violence and suffering, including the sack of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple, while the seeds of two new religious traditions, rabbinical Judaism and Christianity, were sown.

Kingdom of David: The Gifts of the Jews [electronic resource]

Beginning with 1st- and 2nd-century Judaism, this program examines the struggle to reinvent the religion of Moses and David after the Roman annihilation of the Temple. Viewers learn about a number of Jewish uprisings-including the Bar Kochba rebellion and the bloody retribution it triggered-as well as the eventual Jewish Diaspora in which millions fled to Europe, Africa, and Asia, carrying their culture and faith with them. The rise of Christianity is also studied.
