The Bible is an epic five-week, 10 hour television miniseries premiering March 3, 2013 on the History Channel from Emmy Award winning husband and wife team, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. For two hours each Sunday night millions of viewers will see the Bible from Genesis to Revelation come to life in a way never before seen.
This first episode takes you on a very fast paced journey from creation to the very beginning of the battle of Jericho.
Even though this is very fast paced, and I would have personally liked to have more of the Bible portrayed in this, I realize there are a lot of time constraints for the creators of this series. I was disappointed that there was no real time spent on the 10 Commandments as this is God’s ultimate law, written by His own finger on stone, It IS so important. Just this morning I was reading in Proverbs 4:2 – For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. To me, that is specifically referring to the 10 commandments, and Jesus lived those out for us as an example.
Then I wondered, since it’s so fast paced, if anyone could get attached to any of the characters, would this work? At least for the old testament. The truth is, the Holy Spirit can work on any heart to draw them to God and while I was watching the first episode, the Holy Spirit worked on my heart and it was as if I experienced 3 sermons. He spoke to me, so I know He can speak to others as well through this series and for that…BRAVO!
Looking forward to the next episode!
