From Creation to AbrahamStreaming Video - 2011
Beginning in Mesopotamia, the cradle of Western civilization, this program follows author Bruce Feiler as he explores the landscape of the Old Testament and traces the emergence of the Jewish people in history. From the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates, where the Bible's storytellers set the Garden of Eden, Feiler proceeds to Mt. Ararat in search of Noah's ark, travels to the town where some believe Abraham was born, and visits the ancient ruins of Harran, where the Bible says God told Abraham to "go forth" to the Promised Land. Following the path that Abraham may have taken, Feiler stops to examine salt formations associated with the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah before venturing on to Jerusalem's sacred Temple Mount, the spot at which the patriarch underwent his ultimate test of faith.
