    I watched this PBS documentary on TV this evening.

    I really enjoy watching documentaries about the Holy Land. I absolutely love seeing all the beautiful scenery there.

    But,

    I do not like the fact, that most of the documentaries like this one, are usually filled with commentators who are not religious orthodox Jews.

    Instead, they fill them with university professors who come across either agnostic, or atheist.

    There was not one orthodox Jew as a commentator on this film.

    And for that reason alone, I vote no on this film.

    It is as if, they prohibit orthodox Jews from speaking on documentary films about Jerusalem.

    The first part of this documentary got a number of facts wrong because they chose to use sources, other than the oral and written Torah.

    And a large part of last half devoted of the film was devoted to Jesus and the Christian religion.

    So much of this documentary is devoted to Christianity, I would not recommend it to a Jew.

    So I vote no, if anyone is considering the purchase of this documentary from PBS.

    A later part of the documentary is about Islam and their prophet Mohammed who claims to have had a night journey to heaven from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

    However,

    While the name Jerusalem is writtng many, many times in the Hebrew Bible.

    The name Jerusalem is NOT written anywhere in their Koran. Not once. Period!

    Mohammed drew up a marriage contract with Aisha when she was only 6 years old.

    And Mohammed consummated his marriage to Aisha when she was only 9 years old.

    In America someone who did that would be called a pedophile and a child molester and they would be arrested and locked up in prison.
