Highly inaccurate
26 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only reason I even gave it 2 stars is just to applaud for effort of creating a Bible story at all on the history channel. Really it don't deserve on single stare due to the fact it is HIGHLY inaccurate with the Bible. On top of that it lacks important details that really matter.

Here are some examples: God sent a burning pillar between Israelites and the Egyptians when they were at the red sea to keep the chariots from coming to them, before they crossed the red sea. The cartoon is 10x more accurate if you want to know what the true story of Moses is all about, though the Bible itself will tell a lot more. Also when Moses first went to the pharaoh he turned his staff into a snake and also turned his hand shivered then back to normal. Moses meet Aron his bother before he went to Egypt, and he even wasn't excited to go back but instead looked for excuses like his terrible speaking skills and that the Hebrews don't like him. In the story of Lot being saved by the angels, also lack many important details. Actually it lacks all the important details.

Also Rahab hide the spies in a pile of hay and then let them down using some scarf\fabric thing (don't remember exactly what it was from the top of my head) and then they told her to hang that fabric then that they climbed down and her house will not be hurt nor anyone in it. Yet if anyone leave then they'll get hurt. Along with where's the part where Samson set all the foxes with their tails on fire through the philistine field burning their crops? For that is how he really revenged them for killing his wife. And that's only the big details.

And this goes on and on. Instead of wasting footage of what they'd show next time, they need to have done it right. I couldn't even finish watching the series, found it a waste of my time. If i was in charge of this, it'd be 10x more accurate just from the top of my head. Yet I'd even look through the stories in the Bible to double check the details. There's way more accurate plays then this at plenty of churches.

Yet if you watch it from the beginning, what do they claim? Well the first thing they at all say is "This program is an adaptation of Bible stories. It endeavor to stay true to the spirit of the book". Yet how can you stay true to the spirit of the Bible when you can't even get important details right? Things like the angels being poorly portrayed with how they're described in the Bible, those details are minor and excusable to an extent. Yet things like completely skipping the story of Joseph or showing Joshua meeting Moses with the 10 commandments when nobody was allowed on the mountain, those are big deals.
