Good Drama only
22 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found it good drama and it was worth watching. The problem is that if you are familiar with the Bible, you are continually spotting errors and additions. The acting is good. I was impressed with the actor playing Jesus and I don't care that he was probably the wrong colour.

We have 10 episodes. The Old Testament takes up 5 episodes. Rather than trying to cover the entire testament is concentrates on selected stories and characters leaving out many who could have been mentioned. I was OK with this.

We then have 5 episodes of New Testament. I thought that there were too many scenes which were unnecessarily long, especially the cross carrying saga which seemed to go on for ages. More time could have been spent on the ministry stories. I was not happy with the many variations from the gospels and Acts. We didn't have a Saul of Tarsus, just a Paul of Tarsus.I liked the inclusion of Luke but not the omission of Barnabas.

The major fault was ...We are shown Jesus dying and being buried on a Friday. We then see Mary walking to the Tomb and flashed up on the screen we see the words THREE DAY LATER which would make it a Monday. The gospels specifically say that Jesus rose from the dead on the Third day, not three days later. I could not believe that they made such a mistake.
