The Bible … as you’ve never seen it before!

The Bible is coming to Channel 5 … throughout Advent, they will be showing the five, two-hour episodes, covering both Old and New Testaments, starting 9pm on November 30th. Using live action and computer generated imagery, series creators and co-producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett are clear about their aims …

Part of what we hoped to accomplish with the series was to show the Bible is not simply a collection of unconnected stories which are often discussed and analyzed in snippets with chapter and verse numbers. Instead, we wanted to show how the Old Testament connects seamlessly to the New Testament. How they are one sweeping story with one grand, overriding message: God loves each one of us as if we were the only person in all the world to love.

This project has wide support, and was first broadcast on The History Channel earlier in the year. In the UK, the DVD will be released on December 30th.

Set your DTR and don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the Bible story with a fresh perspective … and tell your friends and family. And pray for all those who will encounter Jesus for the first time on their TV screens this Christmas!
