Product Description

Wrath of God, or Nature's fury? HISTORY® travels thousands of years back in time with a fresh investigation of the most infamous and devastating catastrophes in the Bible. From the epic floods in the time of Noah, the fire and brimstone that beset Sodom and Gomorrah, and the calamitous Ten Plagues of Egypt, BIBLICAL DISASTERS explores these legendary tragedies to illuminate their essential humanity and to compare them with the cataclysmic natural disasters of more recent times. With hurricanes, earthquakes and mudslides on the rise globally in recent years, these moving tales of woe, loss, death and supreme judgment couldn't be more resonant, or more timely. This four-disc DVD set includes this original acclaimed HISTORY special, as well as fascinating programs from other Biblically-themed HISTORY series like Mysteries of the Bible. So take time to journey deep into our religious past for the cautionary tales that once shook the world and could shake it once again.

DISC 1: Biblical Disasters

DISC 2: Biblical Disasters II

DISC 3: Sodom and Gomorrah / Noah's Great Flood

This is not "hardcore" history - i.e., basic chronology replete with precise dates, exact places, well documented events, recorded names of participants, verifiable outcomes, and precise ramifications. Rather, it's a combination of actual history, literary history, cultural history and climatological history. The series starts by taking events chronicled in the Bible and fleshing them out with the kinds of disastrous events that have been observed to have occurred since historical records were kept. This results in seeming irrelevancies being thrown in, such as the eruption of Vesuvius which destroyed Pompeii; or modern day famines in parts of Africa and Asia; or tsunamis; or the locusts which nearly destroyed Mormon crops in 19th century Utah. Clearly, none of these relate directly to anything in the Bible; they simply demonstrate the destructive capability of similar events chronicled in the Bible.

The first entry focuses primarily on Moses and the 10 Plagues of Egypt; and while it suggests verification of these events by Egyptian as well as Hebrew records, what it shows is how these 10 Plagues may have been brought about by natural occurrences that have been identified through modern science. Clearly it's not traditional history for someone to identify, millennia after the fact, bacteria that might have turned the Nile red; no one can say for sure that that was indeed what happened because no trace was left behind.

With something like the story of Noah's Ark, however, there are sedimentary traces showing an ancient flooding of the Black Sea to a depth of 500 feet. Of course, that doesn't mean the Black Sea flood corresponds to the events depicted in the Bible - or in the various other "flood myths" found in ancient writings, such as the Babylonian tale of Gilgamesh.

Bought this as a Christmas gift and I'm hoping I can borrow it to look at. It should be very interesting.

If this is history, then so is the story of Mohammed's flight from Mecca to Jerusalem (and back!) on a flying horse; the Mormons' tale of how Jesus visited America; and the Native American belief that the craters on the moon were formed by three frog sisters. We could go on but I think you get the point. "History" should contain, or at least be consistent with, some kind of verifiable data; to merely accept everything anyone says happened at some point in the past as "history" is to devalue the term.
