Bible movies have been on my mind lately, for obvious reasons, ranging from the hit TV series The Bible (two episodes down, three to go!) to the recent news about certain rival Moses movies. Since this is a genre that I’ve been covering for almost 20 years, I’ve been thinking of re-posting some of the articles I’ve written about earlier Bible movies and TV shows.
And what better place to start than the Lux Vide series The Bible Collection? This 13-part series of TV movies — which, yes, started with Creation and ended with Revelation — was produced between 1993 and 2002, and I reviewed every single one of these films, in seven articles written between 1996 and 2004 as each film (or each boxed set of films) was released to home video in North America.
