The Bible

This week saw the launching of a new TV miniseries on the History Channel called The Bible.  The series is produced by Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett.  The series, which started this past Sunday evening, is set to end on the evening of Resurrection Sunday (Easter) with the televised depiction of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Many in the Christian community expect that the series will be a powerful display of one of the most amazing and best-selling books on the planet.  Obviously, a 10 episode mini-series cannot portray all that is in the Bible.  However, it can, and hopefully will, inspire Christ followers, Bible skeptics, and those seeking to know more about the Bible to actually pick up the book and read it for themselves.

Unfortunately, in many congregations, the Bible is not actually opened.  When it is, it is opened  only by the pastor so the congregation doesn’t read the Bible and is only exposed to the opinion of the pastor or guest speaker.  In other instances liturgical elements may take up most of the time for the Sunday Celebration and the actual message from the bible gets a 10 – 15 minute spot in a 60 – 90 minute celebration.

This is a great opportunity for people to actually dig into the revealed word of God and read for themselves the spiritual and historical truths that have literally transformed lives.
