When it comes to movies about Jesus and the saints etc. I've always been very skeptical, especially when it comes to contemporary media. Having said that, I decided to take a chance on 'the Bible' after seeing a short clip on YouTube.

I was completely blown away by the quality, special effects etc. but most importantly by the cast, who were amazing at acting! The depiction of the story of Abraham was truly inspiring, as was the telling of Kind David. Unfortunately, I wasn't as keen on the new testament part of the series, particularly the scenes with Jesus.

Although, there are a few good episodes in the New Testament, Jesus is portrayed as hippy-type figure by an actor who can't really act - which is a shame because the rest of the cast are superb! Overall a good series that gives new insight into the book we know as the bible!

The background story which flows through this series is the work of God offering salvation to the human race. Given the size of the Bible the producers have had to be selective in the parts they have chosen to include. I might not have made the same selection, but that doesn't mean that mine would be better! There does seem to be a lot of violence; but there is violence, especially in the Old Testament; and the producers may well have felt that today's viewers want a measure of violence. There are points at which the narrative is not strictly in accordance with that of the Bible, and some Christians would be put off by that; but in general such points in the film are still compilations of biblical material, if not necessarily entirely from the particular story that is being presented. This is a good attempt to present the whole story within a limited space, but should not be treated as the whole truth on its own.

This retelling is superbly portrayed and accurately tells parts of the best-selling book of all time... The Bible. Buy it, enjoy it, learn from it.

Great series portraying the Gospel in a interesting and engaging way. Missing some important parts but hard to cram Genesis to Romans in a single mini-series. Not for those too tied up in the minutia of their own theology to see the potential benefits this offers for reaching a wider audience.

I bought this DVD because I missed the last episode that was transmitted on 5 USA on Freesat between 17th April and 21st April 2014.
If you enjoyed the series on TV you will want to watch it all again this time with the bits that got cut out.
The first bits of footage that I noticed were where the angels went into Sodom to find 10 righteous men and escape the city, that's where some of it was cut for tv where the angels despatch some evil men.
The next bit is where David kills Goliath, and holds up his severed head for all the Philistines to take notice, a bit bloodthirsty I know.
And of course no adverts every few minutes as on the TV.
I also got the impression it was as I remembered the stories in the bible and none of the over the top "Hollywood effect"
You won't regret buying it.

Something ia wrong with one of the disks and i had already seen these films and know that they are really good films and one disk has a good few parts on it. Was really pleased to get the films but dissapointed that there is a faulty disk. The disks also look used. Dont want the trouble of returning them

We have loved watching these stories from the Bible. They express the truths of scripture quite faithfully, and are really helpful for new those who are new to Christianity to understand how the Bible stories fit together. Obviously the whole of the Bible is not covered for example the story of Joseph does not feature, however on the whole I think that it is a great series.

As I remember it when first broadcast. For Christians, the story and message, which are Bible-based, just don't change from year to year.
