Moses is awe-struck when God, in the form of a burning bush, calls him
to guide the Israelites out of bondage. The reluctant leader and his
flock begin the treacherous journey to the Promised Land. However, Pharaoh
intends to stop the exodus and with his brutal army traps the Israelites
by the Red Sea. Yet these Israelites are God’s chosen people,
and the waters part, allowing their safe passage.
Matthew Modine and Lara Flynn Boyle turn in heartfelt performances as
Jacob and Rachel in this poignant romance. Jacob agrees to work for
seven years in order to marry the woman he loves, only to be deceived
by her father. Forced to start a family with another woman, Jacob agrees
to continue his labor in order to win the love of his life.
Joseph, the enemy of his jealous brothers, is sold to a powerful Egyptian
and faces unbearable tests of cruelty and pain. Joseph's master's wife
falsely accuses him of treachery and rape. What looks like sure tragedy
ends in the greatest triumph in this powerful epic as the goodness of
God transcends the evil intents of men.
Paul Mercurio and Ben Kingsley
Samson and Delilah is a stunning film based on the most provocative
of all Biblical tales. Samson (Eric Thal) is a simple shepherd with
the strength of a titan and the destiny to fight the Philistines and
General Tariq (Dennis Hopper). Delilah (Elizabeth Hurley) is a Philistine
beauty, torn between her love for the shepherd and loyalty to her people.
As told in the Old Testament, Samson's betrayal by Delilah left him
in slavery. But Samson's epic revenge vanquished his Philistine foes
and made him one of the greatest heroes of the Bible. Samson and Delilah
is the powerful tale of a deception that brought down an empire and
sealed their names in eternity.

Here is one of the greatest sagas in all human history—the story
of Israel's greatest king. He became a nationally known hero while still
a teenager in his battle with the giant Goliath. Thereupon his life
was caught up in the whirlwind of his people’s life and destiny.
Never far from danger, political intrigue, the jealousy of opponents,
and the problems caused by his own surging passions, David, nevertheless,
emerged as a "man after God's own heart."
Nathaniel Parker as David.
This powerful film, which premiered on TNT and stars Richard Harris
and Barbara Hershey, is based on the moving Bible story in which an
ordinary shepherd is called upon by God to show his abiding faith in
extraordinary ways. Abraham and his wife, Sarah, embark on a difficult
journey through the desert to the Promised Land where Abraham would
become father to countless generations.
The story begins with the creation of man and woman, the sin committed
by Adam and Eve, and their banishment from Paradise. The story continues
with the first crime committed by mankind, Cain's murder of his brother,
the condemnation of God, and mankind's corruption and evil. The choice
of Noah, a just and upright man, to build the Ark, the flood and its
clearing the way for a new mankind, the pact of the eternal Covenant
between God and all living beings, are told through the clear and simple
words of an old nomad shepherd.
Following the conquest of Babylon, the King of Persia gives a banquet
for his people, but his wife, Vashti, refuses to attend. Ahasuerus disowns
Vashti and goes in search of her replacement. In his harem, he meets
the young girl Esther and falls in love with her. Esther then reveals
to Ahasuerus that she is Jewish and asks him to show her people mercy
because of a planned genocide of the Jews by the King’s right-hand
man, Haman. In doing so, she saves the lives of many innocent people.

From the Emmy award-winning director of Joseph and Jesus comes the story
of Paul the Apostle. This miniseries chronicles the life of Christ's

story continues after the Passion of Christ.
