Dear practicing Jews, Xtians, & Muslims; Pointing out the inaccuracies of the show is pointless...anyone who cares knows Jesus wasn't white, or that ancient Semetic tribes spoke English(!) We know, we know.
Dear fellow atheists & the like; the miracles are at a minimum & really are no offense to us as it is the production & presentation that should move us.
I do not believe in god.
I do love Jesus of Nazareth. I live each day with the words of this Rabbi of Judea, only without all the hocus-pocus. I have seen every Biblical epic since the first Ben-Hur in the silent era. Even in my atheism they move me. Greatly. Read some Joseph Conrad to appreciate the STORY for what it is: The greatest mythology ever written. To believers & non-believers alike: let us just enjoy this great story without interjecting religion. Take the wisdom from these tales and leave the rest.
Do what Jesus of Nazareth suggested: Be nice to each other.
