Apparently, the web site linked below has been publishing a review of each episode of the mini-series. However, this is the first installment I have come across. I gave up on watching the series several episodes back. I’m publishing this review because it demonstrates why I gave up: too many departures from the biblical text.
Not all departures from the Bible are problematic, but some are very problematic. This latter category would include presenting something as history that contradicts the history presented by the Bible. The linked review gives some examples of this.
None of this is to say that the miniseries is bad or that I want to discourage people from watching it. If people find spiritual value in it, I am happy for them. I just didn’t feel like I could recommend it to anyone. Reading the first ten chapters of the book of Acts will do you much more good…and take a lot less time.
