“Ever since playing Moses in The Ten Commandments,” Charlton Heston has said, “I’ve felt a deep, personal connection with the Bible, which remains as vivid and vital today as when it was told around campfires centuries before there was any written language.” Heston brings his own storytelling gifts to The Story of Moses, the second in the actor’s acclaimed four-part Bible series drawing on the King James text, shot as often as possible at actual story locales and augmented with illustrative artworks. From the Book of Exodus comes the towering story of a foundling claimed from the bulrushes, the faceoffs with Pharaoh, the plagues, the Red Sea’s parting and an enslaved people’s liberation, the Ten Commandments…and more of the greatest stories ever told. Approx. 47 minutes.

GrpLdrAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Read from the Text, Shot on SiteMay 5, 2014GrpLdrAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The presentation is shot in Egypt, on the Red Sea, at Mount Sinai, and at an ancient Roman amphitheater located north of Jerusalem. This is not a dramatic presentation of the events, but rather a dramatic reading of the King James text, supplemented with shots of artwork and various sites that tell the story of the life of Moses and God's work through him. Heston departs from the telling of the biblical story at times to comment on the sites being used as a backdrop to the story. The biblical text has been edited in order to fit the time limits of a one-hour television presentation. Overall, very well done.
