The Bible is full of strange and fantastic creatures. Legendary and horrific beasts like the Behemoth and Leviathan have captivated our imagination for centuries but did they really exist? Can they be found today or are they just myth? Welcome to the world of Beasts of the Bible, a new 90-minute documentary that explores the most extraordinary creatures in the Biblical tales. New investigations into the origins of these beasts have uncovered shocking truths. For centuries there have been monsters hiding from us in plain sight.
For the first time, investigators delve into the origins of these mysterious creatures and examine the scientific facts behind their actual existence. Creatures such as the serpent in the Garden of Eden, the sea monster that swallowed Jonah, the Philistine god Dagon, a merman, and the terrifying four-headed, multi-winged angel that appeared to the prophet Ezekiel. Beasts Of The Bible is an intensely visual experience. Using a variety of the latest CGI techniques, the film brings miraculous beasts to life. Some leap from the pages of medieval manuscripts while others manifest from stars in the night sky, becoming “real” before our eyes.
Featured historians, archaeologists, cryptozoologists and herpetologists guide the investigation, searching for the creatures that may have inspired the early writers of the Bible. It is multilayered mystery-solving at its best. The experts debunk the myths but also uncover Biblical beasts that could have been, showing us what they might have looked like and what their possible real-life descendants could be today. This eye-popping, myth-busting, film decodes ancient writings, unlocks the hidden meanings of symbols and legends, and uncovers the most famous and most mysterious Beasts of the Bible.
This special is just in time for Easter. I’m sure you have read the Bible and pictured what the creatures in that Bible looked like. You might even have wondered what those creatures have evolved into to? Well if you have, this is the special to watch. Beasts of the Bible is like Mythbusters: Creatures of the Bible. Now all of the theories presented here are not 100% believable, but it does give you something to think about. There is certainly enough “experts” here to make for some interesting theories. So be sure to check this out tonight, March 31 9 PM ET or Midnight ET, on Vision TV, if you live in Canada, or tomorrow night, April 1 8 p.m. ET/PT, on Animal Planet, if you live in the United States.
