Biblical Accuracy: 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, the producers 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.

Parents – Please Note: The Bible Miniseries realistically depicts scenes from the Bible including battles, massacres and the crucifixion.  Some scenes may not be appropriate for children — parents are encouraged to treat this production like a PG-13 movie and make viewing decisions appropriately.

One Additional Note: Keep your Bibles handy and follow along.
