Looks like a great movie like the Ten Commandments with one of the greatest actors ever to live, Charlton Heston. I just hope it is based on truth and not altered.
Finally! Something actually WORTH watching...all of my friends here....I am so proud to know you...thank you all. You are bright lights during some dark gloomy times. I hope to meet you someday.
they left out what is now considered the most important part of the bible which is hatin' on gay folks.
oh those desert dwellers with their visions and voices in their heads ! frankly, the production quality looks a little cheesy. i've seen much better sets and costumes on the 'spartacus' series.
I have to admit, though I'm an old man, when I saw the light shine through the hand (though it should've been the wrist, I won't quibble) of the crucified, risen Christ, I wept like a child and thanked Our Heavenly Father for this production. What an effective, powerful scene. Oh, the effectiveness of the Bible, when explained, interpreted, and freed to do its work! What power there is in images! What influence there is in film. What potential there exists for good in our television sets. Oh, that we would use these media more, as here, to win back the culture! May your tribe increase, everyone involved in this project. God, use now their hard work to do Your good work.
It looked pretty good...I will be watching like a hawk. The History Channel can be vetty vetty sneeeeeky.
I havent watched TV in quite some time... better dust off the set! Looks fantastic! I cant wait! Praise the Lord! Bout time someone told this story true, the youngin's need it now more than ever, or we'll never get our country back! Benjamin Franklin, Signer of the Declaration of Independence "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
"Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . . it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof." Continental Congress, 1778. Where is our "Ben Franklin" for todays world? Our "John Jay, James Madison"? We need them now more than ever...
I guess I will just have to use this 55 inch samsung led lcd tv I have here then. I didn't mean to literally dusty off the set... Just that its been so long since I have watched regular television.
They have to be out there, but I don't see many in our current govt., but Ben Franklin , John Jay, and James Madison weren't in the govt. they fought either. Mark Levin comes to mind.
Ah yes, the obligatory History channel interpretation of the Bible. Don't we get enough of this throughout Christmas RS? So how many siblings did Jesus have and was he really married to someone named Mary? SO STUPID!
I didn't realize Samson was black. A little bit of Hollywood political correctness thrown in there I guess.
It looks like it could be really good. It's a tremendous undertaking to put the entire Bible into only 10 hours of film, so I'm curious to see how well that will be done.
I expect the anti-Semitic and anti-Christian shrieking to begin soon, if it hasn't already.
I have seen that multiple times over the last few years and even now the tissues are being used. It is simply awesome!!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting that link! OH MY WORD! Nothing like feeling the Holy Ghost first thing in the morning! That was better then all the coffee on the planet to wake this sleepy head up and want to jump around and shout HIS PRAISES!

And a priceless sermon by Rev. Lockridge – Where Did God Come From? (with awesome photos of space) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XD1JOzGEUuA
Rev. Shadrach Meshach Lockridge is the antithesis and the ANTIDOTE TO Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, who are some of the ugliest hate-mongers and anti-Christs of this day and his sermons are absolutely Christ-centered.
Looking forward to watching "Where Did God Come From"....on that subject, the fact that God has NO beginning, that He has always been is something that can find no place to rest in this brain...I can comprehend the idea of time without end....He will always be...but He has no beginning! God is so awesome!
LOVE Rev. Lockridge ever since I read his "That's My King" sermon. THanks for the links. Gives me something to watch later today. As for all the others, I doubt they've ever listened to a word of a real preacher like Lockridge or any other.
Have doubts that the role of the events of Genesis 6:1-4 will not be given enough respect... Much as it is in churches.
I have seen the ads for this several times.I am looking forward to it .I have it marked on the calendar.
Sadly, I've become skeptical of nearly anyone that tries to accurately tell the truth and honestly represent the Bible or Jesus. I've just seen too many instances where the bible was "hollywoodized" or distorted for more drama, or ratings. I'm jaded and I don't trust most people to be honest and to do the Bible or Jesus justice by faithfully translating them to video (or other mediums).
That being said, this looks good and I will watch it. I hope and pray that it is accurate and that lives will be touched and positively affected as a result. God can use ANYTHING for His glory... I hope this is one of those things.
yeah, it's the same few stories being told over and over again but i enjoy all of the biblical epics...i never miss one. talking snakes, talking burning bushes, magically-parted seas, every species on earth in a tiny boat, virgin births, raising the dead...if that ain't the stuff of 'hollywood', i don't know what is.
The Scriptures said the He was comely that no one should desire Him...their guy is a Hollywood hunk and doesn't appear to be an Israelite. Looks like a great quality film regardless
Here's a good commentary, imo on the idea of His appearance. Perhaps you would enjoy reading it?
Every Bible movie I've ever seen has always been wanting imho. And I think that is only because the Bible is a living Word. There is also the fact that people have their own internalized vision of how scripture would look if committed to the screen. So a Biblical reenactment will inevitably not match up for everyone. But I still like Cecil B. DeMille's Ten Commandments and watch it about every five years or so.
Evidently as seen in this trailer all the ancient peoples of the Holy Land were the ancestors of the modern Britons, judging by their accents. They yell a lot as well.
