KUSA - The top-rated epic miniseries, 'The Bible' is now out on DVD. We talked to the creators of the series on 9NEWS 8 a.m.
The ten-part series was produced by actress Roma Downey, who plays Mary in the production, and her husband Mark Burnett of 'Survivor' fame. It offers an in-depth take on some of the most important stories in Christianity, including Noah's Ark, the Exodus, Abraham, as well as the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The series bridges the Old Testament with the New Testament, or as Burnett said, "from Genesis to Revelation."
The couple conceived the idea for the series based on Scripture three years ago. "I've loved Jesus all my life," Downey said. "It's a passion project for Mark and myself."
"We made it to glorify God," she noted. It is the hope of Downey and her husband that 'The Bible' can become a template for learning and added to religious curricula the world over. It's "a great story that happens to be our faith," Burnett explained.
