Dove Review

“Ancient Secrets Of The Bible Vol. 3” features three discs with a total of 13 episodes, and they are amazing in content and presentation. The series features fantastic paintings, drawings, artwork, and even a few statues, in addition to archived film and interviews with top biblical experts who help paint a portrait with words and bring the topics to life. Disc one features the following episodes: “Jesus’ Travels,” “Near Death,” “Fatima,” “Last Supper Artifacts,” and “Dead Sea Scrolls.”

Did Jesus travel to other places than those mentioned in the Bible? What about his youth, apart from the reference of him Mary and Joseph finding him in the temple when he was 12 years old? Do we know anything about this period in his life? What about those who have claimed to experience life beyond following near-death experiences? What about the miracles reported at Fatima? Is there proof they really happened? Where is the Holy Grail? Does it exist somewhere? In addition to examining these questions, the film shares information about the Dead Sea Scrolls, which may boost even the believers’ faith.

Disc two features these titles: “God’s Holy Ark,” “Prayer Saves Nations,” “Miracle of Christmas,” and “Real Story.” These episodes offer a look into the possible existence and location of the Ark, fantastic answers to prayer, the birth of Christ, and historical proofs other than the Bible when referring to Jesus’ birth.

Finally, disc three features these episodes: “Ancient Prophets,” “Six Day War,” “Israel’s Miracle War,” and “Jesus’ Silent Years.” What did Isaiah say about Jesus 700 years before his birth? What did Ezekiel and Daniel have to say about end-time events? How did Israel, vastly over-matched and outnumbered, win the Six Day War? Did God give them aid? What do we know about Jesus’s silent years, the years the Bible says nothing about? Do we have other clues or sources from which to draw?

Everyone will enjoy this fantastic series. The visuals are impressive and the topics are fascinating. We are pleased to award “Ancient Secrets of the Bible Vol. 3” our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12-plus.
