On saturday night, a major new television series starts on Channel 5 called ‘The Bible’ at 9pm. Over the next 5 weeks, it will bring to life major stories from the Old and New Testament. Christians believe the Bible is the word of God and that it is packed with help and advice on how to live your life.
The Bible is also a History of the Jews and the early Christian Church so it is packed with stories. All human experience is in there – life, dead, love, friendship, loyalty, betrayal, murder…. It should certainly make gripping television!
So if you want to learn more about the Bible in the run-up to Christmas, it is coming soon to a living room near you.
