I have to start this post with an admission – I have not seen any of the History Channel mini-series entitled, “The Bible”. We don’t have cable or satellite television in our house and it hasn’t been made available on the streaming providers we do subscribe to.
Many might be thinking – “This guy hasn’t watched any of this, what right does he have to criticize ” I guess that would be a valid criticism, but with theological advisers like Joel Osteen (a flat-out heretic), TD Jakes (a modalist who denies the doctrine of the trinity), and Rick Warren (another heretic who’s invented his own “purpose-driven” religion he cloaks in language that sounds like christianity) I can hardly imagine how they could produce a biblically sound dramatization of the scriptures.
In lieu of my own review- which I am obviously unqualified to give, I highly recommend you read the review below which appears to be very thorough and entirely biblical in its approach.
I think I might have messed up this link. The above article is mostly a repost of this article here:
