The Bible on Trial: Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
“Set in a modern-day courtroom, The Bible on Trial: Beyond a Reasonable Doubt examines the evidence of history, archeology, and the testimony of early followers of Jesus in its quest to determine the reliability and accuracy of the Bible’s message. The crucial question to be resolved: Is the Bible a trustworthy work in which to place our faith?
Attorney Craig Parton leads the investigation in this compelling documentary/Bible study program. He is joined by an array of scholars who contribute insights and analysis from their respective field. Contributors include: Dr. Paul Maier of Western Michigan University, Dr. Randall Price of Liberty University, Dr. Jeff Kloha of Concordia Seminary, and Joel Lampe of the Bible Museum.
The experts evaluate the Bible by employing three ‘Standards of Reliability’ tests: ‘Bibliographical,’ ‘Internal Evidence,’ and ‘External Evidence.’ Furthermore, they explore how the Bible stacks up against other well-known manuscripts of ancient literature.
Hear the testimony. Examine the evidence. What is your verdict?” (From Amazon)

Shapira & I
“70 years before the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Jerusalem antiques dealer Moses Wilhelm Shapira traveled to London with what he hoped to present to the British Museum as the original version of the Book of Deuteronomy.
But the assessment that the scrolls were fake, devastated him and Moses Shapira put an end to his life. For more than 30 years filmmaker Yoram Sabo has been obsessed with clearing Shapira’s name and finding out the fate of the scrolls.
The labyrinth of this baffling affair makes for a fascinating detective documentary.” (From Ruth Films)
