The stories don't depict any bible that I know

"While many of the stories were interesting to watch, they slanted the truth so much as to confuse anyone who doesn't read the bible. Truth is distorted to such an extreme that the original story loses its intended meaning. Not worth serious viewing."
Not a bad work.

"Since the Bible doesn't contain a full blown script of what was actually said and all the small details what actually happened, the directors of these films took some artistic license by filling in the blanks. It seems like they went a little overboard with their artistic license, but my guess is that the importance is in the fact that people will perhaps gain a little interest in the Bible and read it for themselves and fill in their own blanks if they feel it necessary. Much of the dialogue, and even story line, doesn't appear in the Bible but your own reading of the Bible will help understand the real stories."

"They are what they are: old TV episodes of an occasional Sunday night series. They are artistic interpretations of the Bible stories often interpolating another fictional parallel story to teach the particulars inspired by the original Source. Production values vary. The casting is a Who's Who of Show Biz Has Beens circa twenty years ago and it's fun to spot familiar faces in different settings. These programs are family-appropriate and make especially good after-church Sunday viewing. Each story is about 45 minutes long with Moses and Abraham being two episodes."

"Was looking for an animated version, got this collection of short movies.
They were donated to the Religious Education group at the Church. They are good for 10-14 year olds."
