Last Saturday episode 1 of ‘The Bible’ mini series aired on Channel 5 in the UK. I’m going to set my stall out and say I really enjoyed it! Episode 1 covers from Creation through Adam & Eve, the Fall, Noah, Abraham, Moses and ends with Joshua at Jericho.
There’s just one little gem I wanted to pull out of episode 1: That Jesus visits Abraham. (Both the visitor to Abraham and the incarnate Jesus in later episodes are played by the same actor). And it’s intended! Check out Mark Driscoll’s interview with the producers:
