Of The Bible
(2014/History Channel/Lionsgate DVD Set)
C Sound: C Extras: D Main Program: C+
History Channel takes a look into one of mankind's oldest story and
how females played their roles, from the first woman Eve, to Queens
and harlots of the Bible, but who were they really and were they real
or fictional characters made up to teach a lesson? Oddly enough,
there seems to be only 2 types of women in the bible, a woman is
either virtuous and a virgin or she was a seductress/temptress and
sinner and blamed for the sins of man in Women
Of The Bible.
writing here keeps in mind what woman's role in biblical society back
then was, woman was made after man and thus always considered second
when compared to man. Their duties were to serve faithfully and to
submit to their husband, men/god. Any woman who became independent
was considered either influenced by God or was completely treacherous
and sinful. In short, women were considered no better than property
in those times. The only reason why they exist in the Bible was to
teach how young woman and girls how they should behave and serve
their husbands and be the child bearer. If a woman didn't follow
traditions she would considered unfaithful and sinner, and the
husband has the right to even stone her to death.
program reminds us of how stories and reality were two very different
things. Of course, Bible stories are meant to be beautiful and
inspirational, a lot of times they were also meant to teach a lesson
and the real story got changed to suit it's needs, but it makes sense
when you think about who were writing these stories (the men). Even
now, priests tend to gloss over and forget how history was, you must
always question in order to discover what is truth from fiction.
