I watched the first segment of "The Bible" on History last night and here are some of my thoughts.
I found the soundtrack and direction inspired by "The Passion of the Christ", the acting was dramatic and well done. I appreciated the emphasis on the trials of those whom God called to fulfill His mission. Each one, from Abraham to Moses, was continually doubted by those closest to them, and yet remained steadfast, saying, "Trust in God, have faith." This is something we often forget. I was sorry to see that Isaac, Jacob and Joseph were omitted for time's sake, and I wish a bit of time was dedicated to the Passover dinner itself.
