Movie Reviews

Keep away from this series
D. Mancini | Hoboken, NJ USA | 12/30/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I recently purchased this series and was I ever surprised when I watched it at home. Not pleasantly!!! They try to explain everything in a scientific way. It's very clear that Bible believing Christians did not have a hand in creating these programs. For instance, they want you to think that Paul who was one of the New Testament's greatest apostles (The Apostle to the Gentiles) was mentally ill. They compare him to an epileptic who he sees things and NEVER actually speaks to GOD. For instance Paul never actually saw the resurrected Christ when he was on the way to Damascus. He just thought he saw him. He was struck by lightning. That's why he was blind for 3 days. If you believe in God please save your money and don't buy this series. All of my friends are Christians. I can't even give it away if I want to."
Mysteries of the Apostles

"The fisrt part, on St. Peter, is a very successful blend of archaeology and Biblical tradition. It's excellent, and it makes heavy use of the Apocryphal New Testament from Nag Hammadi in Egypt, but, for the first time I've ever seen, in a positive way.

The second, on St. Paul, is good, but probably tries too hard with science and archaeology where it doesn't really fit in with the Biblical traditions.

The final part, on the "Revelations" / Apocalypse is great, and long overdue. It shows that this last book of the NT was NOT a prediction of the future (an idea that's misled countless people over the centuries) but a message only relevant in the ancient author's own time. And it seems that the nasty number is NOT 666 after all !
I wish i could give this zero stars

"I was so shocked at the poor quality and irreverent nature of this item, it is garbage for your brain. I have purchased documentaries from BBC before and was equally disapointed. From now on I will stay away."
