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
The production was a huge disappointment. There were many inaccuracies. It would have been great if the actual Bible books were followed. There was so much extra added and removed. The Bible is a wondrous book and it doesn't require any change.
special affects and sound were great but that was it . rest was not biblical at all . after all for the words to be from the devil it to just slightly change abit . but with this movie they went further. for 1 moses was not known to be a isrealite but the king or anyone other than his mother. where was the pillar of fire.? samson was not black , the profit samuel did not have 2 sons . they were the sons of eli . samuel followed eli after his and his 2 sons died . this is just dvd 1 and not all . the rest is just todays politial correctness or in other words the word of the devil not god
I like the core of the video but wish they would have done a more watchable edition for DVD - cut all the intro's! It starts with what the previous one(s) covered and ends with what the next one will cover.
