Happy Easter from Jennifer Hudson Taylor

Good Friday! I'm deviating from my usual Friday posts to say - I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with promise and time with family, friends and cherished moments of celebrating the birth, death and Resurrection of JESUS CHRIST!

Right now there is a series on the History Channel called The Bible that has stunned critiques, TV stations, and film makers around the world with a whopping 10.9 million people who have been watching this documentary. The series is created by husband and wife team, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. The final episode is this Sunday 8 pm est. However, you can catch parts of it on YouTube or purchase the entire series from the History Channel on DVD.

The first episode of the mini-series was seen by 13.1 million viewers, the largest cable television audience of 2013 to date. The second installment continued "to deliver blockbuster ratings" for the network, attracting 10.8 million viewers. The third installment on March 17, 2013 was once again the #1 show on all of Sunday night television with 10.9 million total viewers. 

The Bible - the greatest TRUE story ever told!

I watched the entire series. The theme of God's intervention in every life doing miracles if you obey him was evident. But my husband and I were very disappointed. So many gaps and misinterpretations of scripture. The last installment cover the book Acts and Revelation in 15 minutes. We noted several kinds of baptism-submersion,pouring, face forward etc- we guess so no one was offended. We both felt like it was an advertisement for buying the DVD, study helps and book by Roma and Mark. I sincerely hope the study guide fleshes out the stories and there are those who have a hunger to know more. So often people rely on the movie adaptation when we all know the book is always better.

I haven't seen it yet, but hope to eventually watch it. I've heard both pros & cons. I think things like that are hard to please everyone coming from so many different denominations and backgrounds. Thanks for sharing your take on it!
