6000 YEARS IN 5 MINUTES

I agree with one of the comments about this “movie.” It is impossible to understand the Middle East in 5 minutes.  However, this is a fairly accurate, though slightly irreverent, look at the history of the Hebrew people as seen in the pages of scripture.

The beginning quote surprised me.  All of those wonderful Bible verses to choose from and the creator choose a quote from Confucius.  Something out of the book of proverbs would have been more appropriate.

The title is wrong.  It is almost 5 minutes long.  Also, I usually won’t post something with language in it that I wouldn’t say myself.  There is only one example of this in the video.  I’m making an exception here because the real Goliath said worse things than the one in this cartoon.

It is cleverly done and it covers key points of Jewish and world history.

It is an amazing fact that Jesus of Nazareth, who fulfilled every word the Hebrew prophets spoke concerning their coming messiah, is not accepted as the Savior by the majority of His own people.  Yet, God hasn’t abandoned them.

“Considering that the Jewish people constitute a mere one half of one percent of the world’s population, Jewish contribution to religion, science, literature, music, medicine, finance, philosophy, entertainment etc., is staggering.”

A short list of important contributors, and the above quote, may be found here:

I don’t agree that Mr. Freud was a contributor.  My reaction to his work is, “WHAT???”  However, most on the list made great discoveries of historical significance.

There is only one word that I can think of when I look at the facts about the Jews: Miraculous.

AND NOW…MAKE YOURSELF A BOWL OF POPCORN…SIT BACK IN YOUR EASY CHAIR…AND ENJOY THE MOVIE.
