I do not recommend-- to Christians or to anyone else
4 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I only watched the first episode (up until the Israelites were enslaved by Egypt). I would have found how dramatic everything was amusing if I wasn't so embarrassed by the film in general.

I am a Christian who believes that the bible is God's word. I respect the effort to inform the masses about the bible (which is why I am giving it a 2 instead of a 1), but I thought they made the stories they chose to tell seem almost silly.

I also really wish they would have represented not only the easier to digest parts of the bible but also the difficult parts, like when Lot was going to send out his daughters to be violated by the crowds surrounding the house (one of many examples of parts of the bible that are difficult to read). Not including the difficult parts makes it seem as if the the people who made the series are embarrassed by what God chose to share with us. Just because an event is portrayed in the bible doesn't necessarily mean that God approved of the actions of the people involved, but they seemed to be deliberately hiding parts of the bible that might make people uncomfortable. I also don't like that they portrayed Abraham as someone who did almost nothing wrong. The stories seemed to glorify man too much.

Overall, the episode didn't seem to portray very well that God's people are sinners who often fail to obey God and be faithful, but that God is always faithful, working things out for the good of those who love him and believe his promises. And I think the fact that the episode didn't portray this makes it misleading. It confirms the misconception that God chooses people who are good because they are good, rather than being merciful on sinners (which we all are) who want mercy.

Also, this is much less important than the last point, but I saw a preview of an episode with Jesus in it, and even if they weren't going to make him look Middle Eastern like he actually was, I really wish they would have made him look like ANYONE else rather than the stereotypical pretty white Jesus with the smooth brown hair, just to acknowledge that we know Jesus didn't actually look like that. I mean it doesn't have to be a big deal who plays who, because with most bible characters it's not relevant to the story what they looked like, but that stereotypical incorrect image of Jesus is just so overused....

I do not recommend this series at all, to a Christian or to anyone else. Please read the bible instead.
