Example: When Lot is captured and Abraham rescues him. In the bluray after the battle Abraham goes to Lot and says "let's stick together as a family" the Lot says "no uncle, we move on to Sodom". Abraham then out of nowhere gives a strange look to Lot's wife and then tells his men "we are leaving". All of this didn't fit together well.
Now, in the actual TV version, after Abraham says "let's stick together" Lot says "no" then Abraham says "but we sacraficed so many of our men to save you". Then Lot says "we lost many men as well. We must move on to Sodom". Then Lot's wife says "the city is where we need to be. Come with us!" Abraham then gives her the strange look I was talking about.
The TV version made so much more sense! What is going on? Who knows what other parts are cut out from the TV version?? Never seen anything like this.
I am returning this and calling the company who made it. What a disappointment!! Did they think we wouldn't notice!?
The show seems to me to be primarily concerned with entertaining the audience. There were unnecessary fight scenes, added drama, and extra plot fillers that quite frankly, took away from the story more than they added. Often throughout the entire series the show contradicted what was written in the Scriptures (Examples: The people of Sodom were trying to sexually assault the angels, not beat them up, and the angelic kung-fu was unnecessary; Judas was not a really nice guy who was duped into betraying Jesus. He was in charge of the money bag but was embezzling money the whole time and then sought to betray him). The depth and lessons behind each account in the Bible were glossed over or altogether omitted, and the character of God was in no way revealed throughout the Old Testament episodes. If the viewer had no prior knowledge of the Bible, he would think that the Old Testament was just one big blood-bath.
Many don't understand God's motives and actions in the OT because we focus on the judgment. But If you read the Old Testament, God explains why He does many of the things that He did back then. The Israelites were an instrument of God's judgment because the Canaanites worshiped demons, burned children as sacrifices to 'Molech', drank blood, and practiced witchcraft. Additionally, sexual deviance was rampant. Men would sleep with their mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, in-laws, and even animals.Read more ›
