On on Blu-Ray and DVD


The Bible is one of the best miniseries I have watched in a long while. It includes 10 hours of the television series on Blu-Ray and DVD. The Bible first premiered on the History Channel in the spring.

I really enjoyed seeing the stories of the Bible come to life on the screen and I love that the stories were brought into many homes for everyone to watch. The Bible is now available to be purchased on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Here are some other great Biblical classics you may want to enjoy this Easter season:

Ben Hur
This epic film follows Judah Ben-Hur (Charlton Heston), a rich Jewish prince who is betrayed and sent into slavery by his Roman friend Messala (Stephen Boyd). The prince somehow survives and returns to Jerusalem in the hopes of finding his family and exacting revenge on his one-time friend. This biblical tale won 11 Academy Awards in 1960 including Best Picture.

Passion of the Christ
Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ depicts the last twelve hours of Jesus’ life, including the betrayal and crucifixion. The film begins in the Garden of Gethsemane and follows Jesus as he is arrested, tried and sentenced to death on the cross. The film holds nothing back and includes a graphic and disturbing depiction of Jesus being tortured and whipped. This intense depiction of Jesus’ final hours was nominated for three Academy Awards including Best Original Score.

The Prince of Egypt
This 1998 DreamWorks animation tells the story of Moses, a Hebrew who becomes an Egyptian prince, only to flee Egypt and return to free the Hebrew people. This film about power and plagues had an all-star cast.

I give it 4.5 out of 5. 

The Bible is NOW available on BluRay and DVD!
