The Ancient Hebrew (#111)
Explores Jewish history, from Abraham’s people journeying to the Promised Land up to the Final Diaspora. Jewish civilization is heralded as being the only ancient civilization to have survived to the present day. Students learn of Joseph’s exile in Egypt, Moses and the Ten Commandments, the 40 years of wandering in the desert, and the establishment of Judea and Israel. They also learn the significance of the Torah, the Arc of the Covenant, the destruction of Solomon’s temple, and the memory of the Holy Land kept alive by Jewish rituals. Segments on codes of conduct and the disappearance of the Maya reinforce the concept of social codes that ensure stability throughout the civilized world. [18 minutes]
