As the funeral of the priest is concluding, the voiceover says, clearly, "'Blessed are the pure in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven', a message delivered from thousands of pulpits to millions of people . . .". Well, not quite. The King James Version of the Bible (Matthew 5:3) quotes Jesus as saying, "Blessed are the poor in spirit . . ." See more »

The past will catch up with you every time in the Twilight Zone

I enjoyed watching episode "The Crossing". I feel this is one of the best episodes in season 3. After you watch it, you will understand what the writer was trying to show us. The episode is 20 years old but many people who live in this era may understand why the writer had to tell his story.

The acting was great from all the adults and children. Some times children have a step up with telling a story without knowing their telling a story which will make a difference in history. That is what got me hooked on this episode. This is not a make believe episode, it is a true telling of something that most people will be shocked with. others may say, whats the big deal.
