I’ve been quite busy lately and it was nice to sit down the other night while visiting my mother. She was watching a show on TV that looked very much like biblical times. I asked what channel it was on and she told me, “History channel” it’s the Bible mini-series.
It runs until Easter and is a complete run through of the highlighted stories in the bible.
This mini-series is an epic 10-part miniseries retells stories from the Scriptures for a whole new generation from Genesis through Revelation.
Some blogs are adamant about not allowing your kids to watch this series. I’d say, use caution. After all, it’s history and how many other subjects in history are people calling for censorship? The only caveat to this statement is that there is violence shown. Use your parental discretion.
Is the History channel – the Bible worth watching?
Judging from what I saw in the first episode, I would give this a thumbs up. Of course, the advertising really breaks this presentation up and caused me to lose focus on what was happening. It’s a good thing that after each commercial break there is a ‘recap’ of what just happened prior to the commercials.
I’m looking forward to the next episode, but I’m going to have to make a trip over to a family members house to watch it. I don’t pay for television anymore, as I’m quite busy and don’t have time to watch it.
After looking at the schedule for the upcoming episodes, I noticed that there is one scheduled to air in the middle of the night!! Why would the History channel do this? It’s a big production and I’d think this should be in a prime time spot.The Bible mini-series on the history channel is a MUST see!! Click To Tweet
The first episode was about the “new beginning” and focuses on Moses. He becomes a leader to the people of Israel.
The Bible is a book of many stories that relate to our lives even today!
History Channel Politics
I’ve generally liked what I’ve seen on the History channel. I have learned quite a bit from watching the shows on the History channel.
However, there is a twist on all the shows that are aired on this channel.
For instance, when they talk about anything that is from biblical times, there is always an over-tone that implies something about a big bang theory or Darwinism.
This is something that can and does lead people astray in their beliefs. I heard it said that even Darwin himself turned from the teaching that he preached his whole life and turned to intelligent design.
Yes, we are created by a God.
There are just too many proofs in our world that point to the Bible being right and has never been wrong in all of History.
Where To View The Bible Mini-Series
UPDATE: This is not that new of a mini-series and is probably listed on your Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon prime account. If not, you can surely get your hands on a DVD of this series.
That’s all I have about the History Channel and the Bible mini-series.
The Bible Mini-Series is well worth your time but please make an effort to follow along in your bible. There are some liberties taken in this epic mini-series.
