Eva P. Scott5 Stars Out Of 5Great to Visualize the Time PeriodFebruary 26, 2017Eva P. ScottQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I was not expecting this series to be more like movies. At least three of the episodes I watched gave me such severe chills I was shaking. The visualization of the events was inspiring.
I had written out the entire book of Acts for a class before I watched this series. There were times when as I was watching it I said to myself, "That's not in the book of Acts." Then I would get out my Bible and found out that it was. I didn't know how I missed it.
There are, however, things in there that I would say were not totally true to the Biblical record, although Biblical names were used and events were done to tie things together.
As an example, Stephen was preaching and doing miracles when he was arrested and brought before the Sanhedrin by people who made up false accusations against him. The story has him going to the Sanhedrin to confront them. They tied him to a stake to stone him. However, in the Bible it states he fell to his knees as he was dying and asked God to forgive those who were stoning him.
There were places similar to that in the series.
However, what the movie does is: 1) gets you to dig deeper into what the Bible does teach. 2) Shows you the barbarity of the times and the Romans (pretty intense at times, and I would not recommend this for young children due to that). 3) Inspires you to see how much the early believers gave up and sacrificed.
The other thing the series does is it shows that Saul was the same in personality after he became a Christian; however, his goals in life changed as well as his methods. This is good, because God uses us as we are to accomplish his purpose. That was something I got out of the series in more examples than this.
It is an excellent series. I purchased the set.

I understood the need to blend some events, etc., to fit the genre, and also to add some details as is common in historical dramas (vs. documentaries). But I was disappointed that some source material in Acts was left out that could have taken the place of some of the fillers (why the camp outside Jerusalem and not the huge crowds within? though the latter would have incurred extra expense). Occasionally A.D. contradicted the source (Joanna was a witness to the risen Lord in the New Testament, vs. here). The most extreme historical liberty was having the emperor Tiberius visit Jerusalem--though it is understandable to simplify the scene for viewers, and keep everything tied around the Jerusalem-based characters and series actors, in reality Tiberius was so paranoid it was difficult to get him to leave the island of Capri! On the other side, however, the characterization caught the spirit of many characters, such as Pilate, Peter, and I think Paul, and made various other characters believable (Claudia, etc.) And by the standards of what is usually available out there, it was excellent. I wish the series could have continued, because it helps get the mind into the biblical world. (If they continue the series somewhere else, they'll have to change some major characters, because historically it's about time for Pilate, Claudia, and Caiaphas to get off the stage, despite the excellent actors playing these roles.) I did find the killings distasteful--though reflective of the era--and it would be difficult for young children. But on the whole I really enjoyed this series very much and highly recommend it. (I saw it first on these DVDs, not having watched it on TV.)
