Roma Downey and Mark Burnett have created an epic mini-series for the History Channel, which premiered on Sunday evening at 8 pm ET and will continue for the next four Sunday evenings, ending on Easter, March 31. They portray the major events of the Bible in ten hours of excellent cinematography.
The first night’s episode, called “Beginnings,” dealt with Creation to Jericho (Genesis 1:1 to Joshua 2:1). It highlighted the following: Noah's family saved from the flood. God calling Abraham. Lot and Abraham separating. Abraham delivering Lot from the kings who captured him. Birth of Isaac. Ishmael and Hagar sent away. Sodom destroyed and Lot saved. Isaac bound as a sacrifice but saved from death. Israel enslaved in Egypt. Baby Moses saved from death. Moses’ exile from Egypt. God in the burning bush. Plagues on Egypt. Firstborn saved from death in households with blood applied. Israel delivered from Egypt and taken through the parted Red Sea, then saved from Pharaoh’s entire army. Ten Commandments given to Moses on Mt. Sinai. Joshua facing Jericho.
