Why The Obvious Errors? To Make Us Re(read) the Bible Again!
It was with much excitement, after reading about this miniseries, that I got the blu-ray and got the whole family to watch.
There were obvious theological errors in biblical proportion especially in well known and well loved parts of the bible like the "Jesus Raises Lazarus" and "Five Fishes and Two Loaves" (there were 2 fishes depicted in a the basket in the show) plus quite a few more than you can find in the earlier reviews.
The question that came to my mind was ... Why the errors? There were not much "artistic or creative" value with some of the more obvious errors ... Example. The "Jesus and The Woman Taken Into Adultery" scene, where the miniseries depicted Jesus offering the "one without sin" to take the stone from his hand to stone the woman ... I rather thought the same scene Mel Gibson's The Passion of The Christ, where it followed the Bible, was much more artistic and drive the message clearer.
One thing I discovered, these errors actually made me(re)read my bible, and with excitement, for that "Aha" moment. And made me rediscover the joy of reading the word of GOD!
I also noted that the Book of Revelation seems to be the only book that is not featured in the miniseries. Can't wait to see whether History Channel is going to make this last book into another miniseries ... Errors or No Errors.
