Mark Burnett to turn the Bible into a series

Oh Lord, the Bible is being turned into a miniseries.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, reality TV producer Mark Burnett will be helming the series, which will be a "five-part, 10-hour scripted docu-drama with live-action and state-of-the-art CG" to air on the History Channel.

"This is probably the most important book in mankind, regardless of your beliefs or religious affiliation," History president and general manager Nancy Dubuc told THR. "This series will bring the historical stories of the Bible to life for a new generation."

The idea for the project came from Burnett and his wife, "Touched By An Angel" star Roma Downey, and will tell biblical stories from the old and new testaments.

Burnett is the man behind such successful reality show franchises as "Survivor" and "The Apprentice." The Bible series is set to air in 2013.

    In my opinion the Bible has been the number one selling book of all time. We should open the book and actually read it. B-I-B-L-E.... Basic...Instructions...Before...Leaving....Earth. Gods plan is simple, what we all is a personal relationship with his son Jesus Christ. Wake up America and Watch and Pray.

      Fact – Yhwh (war god), before the Jews, was one of three brother gods, one of which was Baal (finance god), which is why the Jewish, and some non-distorted versions of the Bible, still mentions the "followers of Baal". The third brother (agricultural god), whose name escapes me at the moment, isn't even mentioned in the Christian version. So, you are not even worshiping the creator god (El, which later got mangled into Elohim, and then fused into the modern Yhwh (patricide maybe?), you are worshiping one of his sons. This BTW, came from a Jewish scholar I ran across, so I would think they know what they are talking about.

      And, just to be clear, all caps, in this day and age, generally means, "moron", or "blowhard". Since it implies someone that either can't find/or use capslock, or thinks being as abnoxious as possible with his words will win him points. Sort of the equivalent of standing on the street corner, shouting his religion, to get noticed for it, which Jesus supposedly condemned. Not that you could tell from his self claimed follower's usual behavior.

Their always claiming their way is the only way and if you dont believe like them then your wrong. Noone knows anything for sure.

    I am currently part of a "tour" called The Truth Project at my church Tonight I learned that the earliest known manuscript dates back to within 25 years of the events it describes. Oldest known manuscripts of Plato's (and others) works works date 1,500 years after they were first writen. Why is the Bible the one book that is constantly under attack. Believer or not, it IS the Word of a God who created you and EVERYTHING around you (including the universe) and loves you unconditionally. If Christ didn't die for all our sins, then our faith in Him means nothing. But He did. I am His. Eternity IS forever. Your choice as to where you want to spend it.

    Liz... no one's name is Jehovah... Jehovah is a later latinized version of God's name...

    But besides, I always find it interesting when people baldly assert that the bible is "myth" or "fable" or any other list of names as if to assert it makes it so. In fact, in my experience they usually know very little about the subject and are just blindly agreeing with other bloggers and skeptics following other bloggers and skeptics, and on and on, simply because it confirms their disbelief. When pressed, they often know shockingly little substantive details. To twist the common cliche, it is basically, "The Bible says it, I dont believe it, that settles it."

    Some of you need to realize that not all Christians are the same. We do not all believe what Harold Camping believes. It is unfortunate that some Christians do and say things that make us look intolerant and self-righteous. Do I want to win others to Christ? Yes. Am I going to behave like I am better than anybody and a know-it-all to do so? No. I am a sinner just like the rest of you. I work on my relationship with God daily. TV shows such as this one should be taken for what it is – a visual representation of God-breathed scripture. If you dont agree with what the Bible says, don't watch the mini-series. I do not believe it is necessary to attempt to insult believers.

    Come on, folks. Don't get all mad. We all should know by now that a lot of movies are made from best selling fiction. Think about it. A lot of the symbols and religious dates of importance are ripped directly from pagan or other religions, not to mention stories in the book that strangely sound like ones from pre-christian religions. Flood of gilgamesh sound familiar? The bible is a compilation of generations of stories that were adapted to fit the wonts of those who wrote it. Look it up, sheep.

    I agree w/ 'truth' – there's a lot of twisted thinking that Jesus would have to untwist. I know some ppl have a hard time believing 'cuz of all the bad in the world. And no wonder they think believers are a bunch of nuts – what w/ the 'rapture fiasco' and the rabid lunatics from Westboro Baptist. Is it any wonder ppl have a hard time believing? Truth be told, sometimes believers question things (just read some of the Psalms). The important thing is to search for yourself and do right by each other. And Christians, don't get snippy.

    Reading the entries above have made me re realize the Free will we have as humans. Not even the Angels in Heaven have that luxury.
    The cool thing about being human is we have an opinion, the sad thing about being human is we have an opinion.
    Which is probably based around life experience.

    Jesus came to untwist the twisted thinking of the time. The old testament was a collection of stories created to explain existance over vast periods of time. The new testament has been written and twisted to fit the lives of those in power over the last 2000 years. take mathew 19-16 thru 19-28....the popular belief among the well to do christians is that the eye of a needle is a small gate....sorry...it IS an eye of a needle...just read the context. Ones personal relationship with God is all that matters. The rest is just window-dressing ....a manuscript of hope to keep the down-trodden happily under the tread of control. Jesus doesn't care about politics, football or even the mole on your butt....just your heart...from a good heart comes good things. Due to the vast amount of greed and gluttony I'd say a few good hearts are needed. lotsa oxy-morons above me...Christian Judges.

    For the Bible Thumpers: have you not read and understood that Jesus' kingdom is not of this world? Did He not give assurance that you would be mocked and perhaps even suffer as He did for His name's sake? James write that his brethren should consider such trials as joy, knowing that tests of their faith produced endurance, and thereby, perfection and completeness. He went on to write, "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, Who gives liberally and without reproach." All I read from most of you is reproach and very little wisdom. Why should anyone take seriously what you do not? Only those whose barns are full can offer to feed the masses. One blogger (what??) wrote that a Christian speaks the truth in love. Kudos! What do you have if you have not love? Another blogger cites reasons for belief in the Bible's historical reliability. These are strong arguments, but they take away from the object. Jesus has never been bent on proof. Nor has any good king. Jesus requires belief from the heart and confession from the mouth. He never offered to prove anything except by pointing to the obvious. Satan tempted Him to prove that He was the Son of God by performing a certain miracle. Even this minor vanity was abhorrent to Him. Instead, He offered wisdom in parables and instructed, "They who have ears to hear, let them hear." Finally to you, dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ; do not let your hearts be troubled. Neither be afraid, for He is with you. May the Holy Spirit of God guard your hearts and minds. Be assured. God will not suffer mockery for long. What is a single life of ninety years compared to His eternal perspective. Such battles are not ours to fight. Vengeance belongs to our God. Let us love the sinner while we can.

    to have religous faith is to make a virtue out of not thinking...i was going to chuch activities 6 days a week, for 2 years. and no matter how hard i tried i never felt god in any of it.... If god so loved the world why would he give power to the person who could tear it apart..or give women periods just because they ate an apple, how would you expect 2 newly created humans to understand what death is since seein how they didnt know they were naked and then became ashamed...

      Hello "Random Comment"; your post broke my heart! Please don't let a bad religious experience taint your love for God. God is perfect; people aren't. And often despite the best intentions, we "church folk" can turn what should be spiritual and edifying into something religious and damaging. So I am praying that you stay faithful to God and eventually find the church that is right for you. Written with love and hope.

    in scripture many people believed that the time has passed for the Christ to come so the mocked, chastised the believers and even went as far as killing them but after the time they thought he should come he did.then the wicked were in fear for they were wrong. the evil will pay in the end.eighther in the life or the after death. it doesnt matter if u believe these word, for only the Godly xan see it truth.

    So I've read them all. How nice. I counted perhaps a dozen comments regarding the actual program; and with a few exceptions, the rest resembled a metaphorical assisted living home for the mentally infirm. Many found the limits of their vocabularies long before having plumbed the depths of their foolishness.
    For the sceptics of the Bible: how oft you tout this collection of "facts," laughing at the "fools" who have no more than some feeble measure of faith. I'm sure you base your "facts" on studies you performed in a lab or in the field. I doubt you would ever believe the voiceless stories of textbooks, which week become obsolete before you can finish a semester. Ever wonder why you can't return a textbook from more than two our thee years ago? Hmm...12th Edition, you say? What was wrong with the first edition? The fact-makers need to get their facts straight....

    200 YEARS AFTER BIBLE, THE PHILOSOPHERS OF GREEK SAID THE EARTH AS SPHERICAL.
    BUT HOLY BOOK RECORDED "IT IS HE THAT SITTETH UPON THE CIRCLE OF THE EARTH" -(Isaiah 40:22)

    GOD NOT CAUSE OF BAD THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO US -JESUS CALM THE OCEAN, THE DEVIL CAUSES STORMS
    REMEMBER JOB, AND THE STORMS,(Job 1:19)
    BIBLE IS A BOOK OF HISTORY-ISAIAH 2OO YEARS IN ADVANCE SAID BABYLON TO BE DESTROYED
    HE EVEN NAMED THE MAN TO TAKE LEAD IN ITS DESTRUCTION-(Isaiah 13:19, 14:20-23, 44:27-45:2)
    THIS "SOUL BUSINESS, IS THE ONE, THE GREAT LIE.....HOLY BIBLE SAYS ANIMALS ARE SOULS
    (Genesis 9:10, Numbers 31:28, Leviticus 11:46, Genesis 1:20,24) -SOUL NE'PHES OR GREEK PSY-KHE'
    OCCUR SOME 700-800 TIMES CONSISTENTLY RENDERS THEM SOUL....EITHER THE SOUL IS INSIDE A
    PERSON OR THE PERSON OR ANIMAL IS A SOUL......ONE OR THE OTHER.....
    AND YOU CAN DO GOOD TO YOUR FAMILY, AND OTHERS, GIVE TO THE POOR AND BUILT SCHOOLS
    GIVE YOUR MONEY TO THOSE IN NEED...BUT THIS IS SOMETHING BY NATURE ALL SHOULD DO....

    OF HEAVEN BUT HE THAT DOES______________(Matt.7:23)

      Uhmm, for your information dumbazz, a circle is flat. The bible had it wrong, the Greeks had it right when they called the earth a sphere.

      Let me explain this in dumb enough terms for you to understand. A pizza is a circle. A basketball is a sphere. The earth is the same shape as a basketball, only a whole lot bigger. A pizza is flat, the earth isn't.

    @sad -I was reared in the Roman Catholic church. I am now a born-again Christian. As a child I was never encouraged to read the Bible. Reading it the first time changed my life forever. Yes, written by man but God-breathed. It doesn't matter what works you do here on earth. What does matter is your personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Ritual and ceremony at a church service mean nothing. It is what is in your heart that counts. Kneeling and praying to statues breaks the Ten Commandments. Jesus Christ is your only intercessor. It is so simple yet so difficult for so many to grasp.

      Mon,
      You are correct! And we all know, or think we know, that he was born in Bethlehem. Might we say that because Bethlehem is not a modern part of Israel but of Palestine that Yeshua (Jesus) was a Palestinian? He did after all engage in bootlegging when he turned that water into wine at the wedding in Cannan. You can bet that neither He nor the wedding guests present bothered paying the tax due on this to the Romans. Blond hair, black hair, no hair at all, we have no idea what he looked like. However believers hold firm that he was fully a man, begotten of GOD, to show mankind who and what GOD is in terms they can comprehend.

      Lord, spelled initial caps only appears in the Old Testament as a translation of secondary names associated with God such as Shaddai, Elohim etc. LORD spelled all caps appears only in place of the name of God which the Jews believed was too Holy to be spoken or written. In Exodus 3 in the original Hebrew God names himself with the letters YHWH . SInce there were no vowels in the text scholars have placed some very carefully here forming the name YAHWEH. Germans spell this with a J instead of a Y (giving credence to English speakers confusing the issue and naming HIM JEHOVAH. The J in German is pronounced like the English Y and both sound like the first Hebrew character in YHWH which is yud, So technically, I suppose, using Lord in a profane way is no more a breech of a commandment than a serf refering to his Lord (of the manor) as the damn Lord.

    Well to tell everyone there were hundreds of different bibles over the years. what they didnt tell you was noah was of black decent. he had 3 sons one white one black and one red(what we call mexican) but in all honesty no matter through movies or shows or books no on will show the truth. we watch or read only what people want us to know. All you need to know is that i am the punishment of god,if you had not created such a hainus crime god would not have sent a punishment like me upon you!!!! those are the words of the devil, ignore his words when they are heard!!!

      Yes, I really do get a kick out of it. It is hilarious to watch and listen to you people. Let's have a conversation. I say god does not exist. You say it does. I ask you to provide evidence, you point at a tree or a rock or a flower. Then I provide empirical scientific proof that god did not put said flower,tree, rock there. then I ask you for proof of your gods existence and you say, well he spoke with me. I then provide empirical scientific evidence that the voice in your head is not that of a deity but your own. Then I ask you to PROVE your gods existence... You see the circle in which hilarity ensues? Understand that the burden of proof is on your shoulders when you make a claim such as this one. And I say that sir Isaac newton had a tough time proving gravity's existence, as it is something else you can neither see, hear, or touch. Ah but you see he succeed where you will always fail. He provided solid empirical scientific evidence of gravity's existence. Where that voice in your head, its a coping mechanism for your sad lonely existence.

      Perhaps you should ponder gravity a bit more than you do. That it exists is demonstrable, just ask Newton. What it is–now that, my dear Horatio, is the question. In gravity we have something we know exists but do not know what it is. In God we have something most think they know what it is, but don't "KNOW" the it exists. Go figure.

      "However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way". (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

      You're right, you don't have to be a Christian for morals and helping others.

      In reference to anyone who says anything about Christianity and religion in general is the downfall of the world why don't we look at WWII? More people were killed in a single war between Stalin and Hitler than all of the wars of mankind combined.

      Guess what? Fascism and socialism have their roots in Atheism. why do you check out what people have done for their greedy selves instead of saying religion makes the world "stupid" and "weak".

      I really hate threaded systems, where you can't reply to the replier. That said – Stalin: Was a megalomaniac, who saw the church as a dangerous threat to his own power. For all anyone knows he secretly prayed (though its not likely, he was too self centered for it), like so many other idiots down through history. He wasn't even a communist, per say, having murdered the man that came up with the idea, so that he could also mangle that beyond recognition, to gain power. It was *all* about power for him, and sharing it with the church... Hell no.

      As for Hitler... Seriously, when are people going to stop trying to use this one. He a) hated atheists, and burned there books, b) banned Darwin's works, c) murdered nearly anyone that wasn't conservative, and d) practiced some weird mix of the Catholicism he once nearly because a priest in, and a lot of pagan junk, which a few of his advisors tried to claim would grant him more power. I would hardly call some nutcase that imagines pretending to be Voldemort, in between reading the Bible and babbling about the glory of God in his speeches, an "atheist". Nutcase maybe, but definitely not an atheist.

      Oh, and again, just so we are clear on this, if someone, from some random religion set off a nuke in a few big US cities and somehow, in a single stroke, killed more than Hitler and Stalin, it wouldn't be because that religion had a worse track record than Christians, it would be because they had frakking nukes. Same goes for people that traded rifles that shot one round every 2-3 minutes, and cannons that often misfired, for machine guns, that fired lots and lots every second, and tanks. Its the better weapons that define how bloody those wars where, not who fought in them. Since most of the crap Christians have done has been during periods when the most effective weapon was a damn bow and arrow, or a sword, its hardly a surprise that they didn't kill millions (unless you count via banning herbs, healers, medicine, killing cats, and everything else they did to spread the plague).

      @ WeatherVain

      Do you really have an answer? And yes. it is an assumption to state that someone has never studied the bible and sees the contradictions. I'm studying the bible right now, and right in genesis, I see a major inaccuracy. Genesis 1:16 "And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night." The lesser light that rules the night is the moon. We know in fact, that the moon is not a "light" at all, but rather reflects light from the sun, giving the appearance of itself being a light.

      Whoever wrote the bible, obviously had no idea of this, and would assume / guess it was a light. Just as they had no idea that the Earth revolved around the sun, or that the Earth is round. The person / people who wrote the bible were simply ignorant of the facts, as they did not possess the knowledge at the time it was written. Just like the Greeks believe that a god riding a charriot dragged the sun around the sky; they didn't know how or why, so they made up a myth. If the bible is the written word of an all-knowing god, why is this inaccuracy in the bible? This is just one example out of many.....

      @ AtheistSlayer

      Your answer to the question of contradictions in the bible is "Haha... No sir is not?" Is so. Is not. Is so. Is not. This is not a rational argument. You need to have evidence and facts to back up an argument. "Because I said so" is not valid.

      If you say it is so, because the bible is the word of god, how do you actually know it is the word of god? Is it because the bible says it is the word of god? This is a circular argument and still lacks facts. What is more likely? That the bible is the word of god, despite only arising in one area of the world, having contradictions, errors, and constant differing interpretations; this doesn'y sound like the work of an all-knowing, all powerful god.

      Or, could it have been written by a group of men who needed a way to control others, and have a philosophy that would superseed other already existing laws and philosphies? The more likely answer is that it was written by men who did not understand the world in which they lived, who had no concept of the even their place in the world. Why didn't god tell them about the Earth being round, that the sun revolves around the Earth, or the existence of dinosuars? Seems pretty strange to live these major bits of information out of a book given from an all-knowing creator....

      Think about it. How do you know the bible is the word of god?

      Maybe you should read into what science has actually laid out before you start judging atheist and agnostic thoughts. Notice I used the word thoughts instead of beliefs. See admitting that you actually don't KNOW everything is how you begin learning. The devout religious take every step in their lives as if they showed up for their very first day of school, five years old, and started teaching the other kids. And they carry that chip on their shoulders their entire lives. Let me ask you this, on an infinite time line what is not possible? Second question, does it not say in your bible, "Judge not lest Ye be judged."? It does, Matthew 7:1 King James Version, look it up. Perhaps you should actually apply your beliefs to your life before you start defending them. But props for effortlessly writing sarcasm, its not easy. You should be proud of that accomplishment.

      The thing is I've learned that I know nothing, but common since goes a long way. Some of the same scientist present evidence as hard facts and return to recant them later. I didn't judge anyone, I just simply stated what scientist say today. Just sounds different when you actually say it put loud. Sine study would reveal that the judgement is people who would hold people to their own standards not God's. I can't hold anyone accountable for anything.

    • its all fake

      Athiestslayer??? Really??? There's is nothing at all to prove any of those ridiculous claims. Dinosaurs, cro magon, the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs... all events that took place 65 million plus years ago angle guess what? We have evidence that supports the theory!! There is absolute no hard evidence at all of a so called Christ. Why is it when you ask for proof that Christians always quote something from the bible.. a Christian book! That's not hard evidence. We have proof of Julius Cezar, Herod the Great and Josephus all roughly in the same time period. They let artifacts behind. Yet, we have no proof (artifacts) of Christ at all. Nothing suggests any of it.....If you want to go after a scientists theory you are the wine who better be prepared to prove and its gonna take alone more than so fable out of the bible! Get real!

      Tell me what proof you have that we descended from apes. And if so, why are they still apes. Where is this missing link. Why hasn't anyone given birth to an animal? Can you or any scientist make water from nothin more than thin air, or in a complete vacuum? Why does the earth contiously rotate every 24 hrs and revolve around the sun giving us our solar year. We know how photosynthesis works, but how and why does it work. Can we build a plant cell out of organic material and make it work? If we could produce these things on this earth that randomly appeared can we do
      It from nothing? Prove to me there is no God. Show me that evidence.

    in my opinion that "miniseries" or "movie" whatever is going to be, i think its gona be fake n full with lies. and that is going to make alot of people confused in there beliefs. ive seen the history channel numerous times and i cant believe what they say. just lies. they try to bring an explanation for everything. when the truth is written on the Bible. i recomend you all to read the Bible. is a beautyful thing. the miracles he had done you'l be suprise. God Bless You.

    The old Hollywood did some accurate
    Bible movies but I doubt the new Hollywood
    is interested in doing the Bible justice.
    I see a political statement coming from
    the producer on this one.

      Well, let's see, he was from the middle east. I would bet that he most closely resembled an.....Arab.

      What do you want him portrayed as, a Scandinanavian?

      This series will be a big steamy pile of donkey turds. Hey will probably want to be politically correct and make the Jesus "character" be gay. Seems we can never have enough fuudgepacking and weenee biting.

      How can it be accurate without Charlton Heston to play every part? Accuracy as in Judaism, Evangelical Christianity, Roman Catholicism, Lutheran, Methodist? And so on and so on and so on. If I were a Christian of any faith I'd be insulted.

      Aside from Judism, the remainder are denominations of Christianity. That is the different order and operation of the church itself.

      Mocking and sarcasm won't help you for what humanity has store up through out history ... wake up in and stabilize your nature and insides. For the ears that listen get the message. As fot the ignorant I hope you realize what's happening under the sun.

    • Really?

      @ principality
      "what humanity has stored up throughout history"
      Do you mean like the crusades, the inquisition, Saint Augustine’s Cognite Intrare, and the Botswana genocide of 400,000 Muslims by Christian Serbs in 1992-1995, death toll nearing one billion only including the above mentioned events. or are you referring to the mere 100 million abortions performed to date? Did you know sir, that in the twentieth century alone Christianity has claimed 20 times more lives than those taken in the name of the Islamic faith in addition to all of the murders its followers have commited to date. It's a fact. I would like to note that I am agnostic, but were I to choose to conform to a religious faith it would certainly not be Christianity. One more noteworthy mention, how about the genocide throughout Europe of Christians by Christians, I believe in world history classes it is referred to as the reformation and counter reformation era. Seems very brotherly.

    • I care

      The bible is what it is... An excellent tool for teaching masses of the ignorant to behave for their masters, who meanwhile use the power of the masses to fight wars, create genocide, and further oppress those masses that provide the power. It's the perfect mass subjugation tool... It tricks followers into self subservience, not to god, but to whichever church happens to be in power that century. The 10-commandments? This list of rules could keep a zoo full of monkeys from killing each other, which is exactly it's design. Oh, and by the way, I'll take 10%, thank you very much.
