“Go!” has promoted this Bible miniseries in a previous posting but in case you didn’t see that posting, here it is again! The Bible will be an effective tool to encourage people to read and study the Bible.
The Bible is an epic five-week, 10 hour television miniseries premiering March 3, 2013 on the History Channel and Lifetime Channel from Emmy Award winning husband and wife team, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. Each week the History Channel will show episodes on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Lifetime will also show episodes on Monday nights. Check your local TV schedule for times.
For two hours each Sunday night millions of viewers will see the Bible come to life in a way never before seen – with two episodes airing each week. See the trailer below! The final episode of the miniseries will air on Easter Sunday and will feature the death and resurrection of Jesus.
The Bible miniseries is not a documentary, it is a scripted, acted docu-drama filmed on location in the Middle East and Morocco. Inspired by re-watching the classic Ten Commandments film, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey set out to show the scarlet thread of redemption found in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, using the latest special effects and quality film-making techniques.
The website, Outreach, has produced all kinds of promotional materials to assist you in promoting this miniseries and for hosting a viewing party whether at your church or in your home. Study resources have been produced so that you can do deeper into the study of the Bible.
