HISTORY CHANNELS "BIBLE" SERIES ACTUALLY TEACHING PEOPLE - ESPECIALLY NON CHRISTIANS!Nearly 7 in 10 viewers say they learned something new. And 3 IN 10 ARE NON CHRISTIANS!The creators of The Bible miniseries set out to draw millions to the stories and truths of the Scriptures, and recent statistics suggest theyre doing just that.About 4 in 10 Americans have watched at least one episode of the show, according to a survey by Barna Research for the American Bible Society.More than a quarter of the shows viewers13.1 million for the premiere and around 10.8 million in the weeks sinceare self-professed non-Christians, they found.The miniseries, which air on the History Channel each Sunday until Easter, portrays Bible stories from Genesis through Revelation, and 69 percent of viewers say they have learned something new about the Bible from watching, according to the survey.Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, both Catholics, consulted with theologians, scholars, and pastors for accuracy.Our greatest hope is that this series will affect a new generation of viewers and draw them back to the Bible, said Burnett, the man behind shows like Survivor and The Voice.
when you look at The Bible you realize that this is the most enduring piece of work that we will ever work on. More people will see The Bible series than all of our other shows combined.article can be found in Christianity Today athttp://blog.christianitytoday.com/ctliveblog/archives/2013/03/history-channel-bible-series-teaching-people-about-the-bible-barna.html
Last Monday the fellow that works for us asked us if Samson was born to a single mom? Also said his mom and the angel were black - said he saw this on tv the night before on the 'Bible' program. I had a fit. I took my Bible and showed him in Judges where it says his parents were married. Plain as day. I was upset. How can someone screw up something so simple?? And to think this is what ignorant folks are being taught via the idiot box. Not very nice, am I?

My favorite were the Ninja angels. Wonder if that is what the charismatics mean by warring angels.Ok. All kidding aside. I hope the Bibke series will get unsaved people to read the actual book and find Jesus. ButI I believe there are better videos that convey the Bibke story more effectively than the History Cannel.There is the Jesus video taken from the Gospel of Luke. I remember watching an excellent video series on the Book if Acts. The characters were dressed in the time period and the scenes were filmed on location around Israel. The dialogue taken from the NIV. The same people had done a video series on Mathew. Also there is another video series out on John.The History Channel is to be commended for the series. But believe there are Vetter Bibke videos out there.My thoughts.Bearmaster.
Solomon what you are implying about Ginnyrose is so wrong! She works with many young girls who are black through her church and has never showed anything but love for those who are lost regardless of their skin color. I believe she was more upset because the person who watched the show believed after watching it that Samson mother was portrayed as being single. I have watched the show and have been disappointed in it as well. I think the ninja angels were silly, I did not like the way they handled the Moses story, I do not like how they handled Abraham. I do not like the fact that much of this show has changed, left out, or rewritten the truths of the BIBLE. Those who are watching are getting watered down versions of the BIBLE and in some cases out right errors.As bearmaster said there are many other movies out there that are better done.
