I know that this was shown during Lent earlier in the year, but I was curious what you thought of The Bible miniseries that was shown on the History Channel. I'll be honest, at first I wasn't too big a fan of it, but after multiple viewings, I have actually come to appreciate what they were trying to do. It is by no means perfect, and they did some creative things that I question, like the scene with Jesus and Lazarus, but overall I appreciated the spirit that went into its production. Also, my high school students absolutely love the series. They have reacted more favorably to these films than anything I have shown over the past five years.
They will be releasing the Jesus portion of the miniseries into theaters in February as a movie called The Son of God.
