Back to the Beginning
Past Preservers provided contributing experts including Dr. Rawia Ismail, Ahmed Seddik, Lori Lawson and background research for this ABC documentary.
This two-park ABC News special follows Christiane Amanpour as she traces the history of the Bible from Genesis to Jesus. On her journey, she travels to the remotest corners of Turkey, all across the Middle East and even to the American heartland in search of clues about the biblical stories.
It’s a journey back in time to explore the history and the mysteries of some of the oldest stories ever told: those of Abraham and Moses, King David and Jesus. As she visits the great sites common to the three monotheistic faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, she brought along her 12-year-old son, Darius. With a Muslim grandfather, Christian grandmother and Jewish father, these three religious traditions come together in him.
