If you've ever found yourself asking, "What did the Biblical seductress Delilah really look like?" or, "I wonder what the face of a man that listened to Jesus' Sermon on the Mount would look like?" then there's now a new 4 part TV series that explores this and more. Biblical Forensics: Real Faces of the Bible is a Canadian series from Toronto-based Associated Producers (The Lost Tomb of Jesus, The Naked Archaeologist, The Exodus Decoded). The producers were granted astounding access to four ancient skills from the Holy Land.
Using a blend of myth-busting archaeology, dramatic recreations, and 21st century forensic science, we see for the very first time the reconstructed face of a Philistine woman who lived at the time of Delilah, the biblical femme fatale who has inspired many a painter and Hollywood casting agent. We also see the reconstructed face of a sacrificial victim "brought to life" -- a baby found in a millennia old Canaanite jar -- and that's just the first two episodes.
Because of religious sensibilities, it is very difficult to do forensic work on human remains excavated in Israel. Utilizing CAT scans and other cutting edge 3D technologies, forensic anthropologists, doctors and police facial reconstruction experts have been able to respect those sensibilities by minimizing the need to handle the skulls of the deceased. The results are extraordinarily life-like.
Hosted by David Berman of the hit forensic drama series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Biblical Forensics takes viewers into an unforgettable journey of discovery to come face to face with four remarkable depictions of characters from the biblical era.
VisionTV will present the series over 4 Mondays starting on April 8 at 9:00pm eastern time.
