Banned from the Bible: Enigmas of the Old Testament

Was Solomon, the legendary wise king, actually a sorcerer?

Did Joseph, the hero of the epic saga of the coat of many colours, marry a pagan goddess?

Was Lilith, the alleged first wife of Adam, a proto-feminist or a demonic succubus?

Why did the ancient rabbis edit out stories of an early, Atlantis-like paradise or delete apocalyptic prophecies said to be penned by the descendants of Abraham himself?

This documentary explores the kabalistic stories of angels and demons disavowed by orthodox leaders, and the apocalyptic visions and the sexual imagery that was barred from the Old Testament.

With discoveries being made all across the world - in caves, ruined temples, ancient libraries and monasteries, these tantalising fragments continue to be found and debated.

Are they heresy or hidden truth?
