I bought this as soon as it was available and eagerly waited for its delivery. I started watching it almost as soon as it arrived. After one episode, I was shocked. After two, I put the whole thing away. It might have been done beautifully, but it's not Biblical.
The special affects were the best but that was where it ends. Not a single special time to draw the onlooker to the one true God was not at all biblical. The devils words were changed but that wasn't all - this movie maker went a bit further with distortion of the devil. Moses is not known to be a Isrealite to anyone other than his mother. No signs of the pillar of fire? Samson was not black, Samuel did not have 2 sons, they were the sons of Eli. Samuel followed Eli after his 2 sons died . Entertainment nothing totally factual was produced. Todays politial correctness is a better way to name this film or the word of the devil not the True God.
Highly recommend for everyone to watch. This film follows the Bible closely. We need more films like this one so maybe America would repent and turn back ti God.Hope to see more Bible based films from these producers.
Returned home from the mission field to find THE BIBLE Epic Miniseries production and with enthusiasm I watched it.
The historical records of God has been plainly and carefully written down and recorded for the whole world. It is not just a book of stories, but it is a complete story which God dictated to men through His Spirit so that the WORLD might know Him and receive His gracious gift of eternal life. The written content has power to save those who read it and follow the instructions for Eternal Life. It is one story told within many books. It is GOD'S comprehensive historical narrative through men, of man's only way to get right with HIM after the disobedience in the garden.
The BIBLE Epic is an artistic work which did not stay true to the deep spiritual meanings woven through the scriptures showing always inner personal relationships or the lack of with the one true God. The Epic failed to highlight or show those deep and/or shallow spiritual aspects of the main characters' relationships with 'The One true God of the BIBLE.
The scriptures have clearly recorded the different relationships of men to the Hebrew God and purposely highlights both those who refused Him and those who had unwavering belief and commitment to obey Him.
The additional dramatic inserts added to the text such as the angels' killing of the residents of Sodom is an example of unnecessary dramatizations beyond God's scriptural account in the BIBLE.
The scriptural records of THE BIBLE, cannot be separated from God's overall purpose of providing a way for man to have a personal relationship with HIM and must remain the main point throughout each well told story within the scriptural purpose and SPIRIT of the text.
The scenes of Abraham's relationship with GOD failed to depict a man who was experiencing a belief which would be recorded as an example down through human history of genuine saving faith.
As we are aware, it is God's Story and the scriptures are full of the details of mankind's good and bad relationships with The One True God.
THE BIBLE EPIC miniseries, failed to match the Spirit of the BIBLE in its' portrayal of the deep and shallow relationships of God and mankind through human history.
Nevertheless, some may seek HIM after their hearts are stirred. Carol Farquharson, missionary
