Since THE BIBLE Mini-series began it has been viewed by 68 million . That's 68 million times that at least part of the word of God has been shared with the masses. I wonder how many of those viewers were being exposed to the Bible for the first time. God will use this opportunity to His glory.
Rather than criticize it for being too Hollywood or inaccurate, let's encourage people to use it as a starting point for deeper Bible study. The door has been opened, let's invite them in. It is always important to remember that we can start where ever someone is in their Bible knowledge and teach them about Jesus. Consider Philips interaction with the Ethiopian eunuch. And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?” Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. Acts 8:34,35 ESV
So today, let's let God work through His word. Let's not be an obstacle in the way of others seeking God. Let's invite others to study the WORD with us.
