BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST

This film is meant for people like me. I don't know that much about "The Bible". I found this more like watching an educational film you would see in grade school. It held my attention. I think if this film was made today they would change a few things. Many scenes are just one master shot and it stalls the film. Other than that I have no complaints. By the time the film ended I wanted to know more.

Children will be bored watching this. Adults might be at times. If you don't think of the film as a "film" and think about as a "Teaching tool" then you will enjoy this
