Season 1 - Episode 1: Beginnings

To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.1.0 or greater is installed.

This episode starts at the very beginning, with Noah telling his children the stories of the Creation, the fall from the Garden of Eden and Cain's killing of his brother Abel, as they weather an almighty storm on board their wooden ark. God has sent a global flood to cleanse humanity and offer a new beginning.

Years later, Noah's descendant Abraham receives a message from God and sets out to find the promised land. There is not enough fertile land to support his whole tribe, however, and his nephew Lot decides to leave to make a new life for his family in Sodom. When God sends two of his angels to destroy the city of sin, only a heartfelt intercession by Abraham saves Lot's family.

There is still no sign of the innumerable offspring that God promised Abraham, so his barren wife Sarah encourages him to father a child, Ishmael, with their servant girl Hagar. Years later, Ishmael is the apple of his father's eye when a miracle happens. Sarah gives birth to a son, Isaac, and forces Abraham to choose between his children.

Hagar and Ishmael are sent into the wilderness, but God asks for one final, terrible test of Abraham's faith. Many years later, the descendants of Isaac's son Jacob (renamed Israel by God) have been driven by famine to leave the promised land and are now slaves in Egypt.However, one young Israelite is not a slave. The foundling Moses is living as a member of the Egyptian royal house hold until young Ramesses taunts him about his origins during a fight. Moses retreats to the wilderness until God commands him to free his people.

Moses returns to Egypt and demands: "Let my people go!" but the Pharaoh refuses, triggering a succession of devastating plagues sent from God. When the Pharaoh's first-born son dies in the tenth plague, the Israelites are freed but the Pharaoh later changes his mind. Pursued by hundreds of chariots, they arrive at the edge of the Red Sea and only a miracle saves them. The promised land awaits, but God has not yet finished with Moses. The Ten Commandments will give the Israelites a code to live by.

    Like others, I cannot get anything after the long ads. I signed it but to no avail. Screen shows unlocked symbol but repeatedly coming up: 'cant show' on any episode yet shows the clips of all the 'worst bits'.. Confirmed over 16. Computers craze me when all this pointless and needles faffing around when you simply want to look/see/access something straightforward. guess I'll remove my details.

    It seems as though God needs to rent more servers because I also cant get any further than the adverts. He does, however, want me to buy a ChromeBook... And speed up the ajax / javascript on this comments section. It keeps missing out characters as I type. Rubbish!

    it smacks of being made by non believers. You can tell by what they omitted because they didn't understand the true significance. it also was a poor effort using english and scottish actors. couldn't they have casted Israelis. that was just disappointing. very few actually looked let alone sounded authentic. however, I did enjoy the program and will rewatch it. fair enough effort. well done.

    Hi all,not watched any of the episodes from here yet! Seem's like a bit of a competition going on, I seen one episode last night and yes! to all sarcastic/un-believers, I got the message of the tax collector, I have sinned and Thank the day Jesus came into my life and Madame born again, I thought, I was a Christian by going to church,getting baptized into the faith and believing, this could not have been further from the truth, "Just to believe isn't enough, we have to be born again, not in a Cliff Richard's Mistletoe and wine, hands in the air way"Sorry Cliff" but to admit to Jesus we have sinned, ask for his forgiveness, thank him for his sacrifice and pray he guides us thru the teachings of his father and our savior, "Heavy I know, It took me a long time to believe and wait for the penny to drop, well enough of my rambling, I wish you all Merry Christ- mas and spare a thought for the person whom you are celebrating, as he will be concentrating on the sinners/weak/lonely/vulnerable and again all you cynics will say why doesn't he do something,he doeseveryday,However we don't listen,we create wars,we commit adultery,we dishonor our mother andfather,we most importantly take the lords name in vain and ignore him and all he's given us. I pray every day to be a better person and thank every day for Jesus not giving up on me! God Bless!

    The wonderful thing about Jesus is that he came as the Truth to set men free with the word and power of God; hence we must follow his example and condemn not but pray that the Wholesome Power in the Truth of God's Word will set free all people across race, beliefs, ethnicity, heritage, nationality, gender etc. This series is a seed being sown for a greater purpose; as Jesus so profoundly put it - Yea shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free. People, I have an idea, instead of debating on the quality of the graphics and the parts of the bible left out, why don't we all just Praise God for the seed of the Truth of God's Word that is being sown into the lives of people in the U.K and around the world with this series - Remember, even if it only saves one soul, there will be much rejoicing and celebrations in Heaven. Keep that fact in focus. :)

    Dear Elliot, There is a distinction between God's moral law - those that show his character and justice, such as the Ten Commandments - and laws given to the nation of Israel almost as a concession, because of the brokenness and imperfection of the world they inhabit. There are other examples; Jesus himself when asked about the law allowing divorce says that Moses gave this law 'because your hearts were hard - but it was not this way from the beginning' (you can read about it in Matt 19). Slavery is clearly not an ideal; the Bible is clear that all humans are equal in God's sight (see James 2 for one example). Nevertheless it existed, and God provided a legal basis to prevent excesses and abuse. Anyone, though, who knew the heart of God would recognise the injustice of slavery (see, for example, the character of Boaz in the book of Ruth). You, I take it, do not avoid beating your wife because there is a law that says, 'do not beat your wife', but because you love her. Nevertheless, anyone who does will be answerable to the law. Jesus takes the old testament law and shows the inadequacy of mere observance; our problem lies deep in our heart. We may never have committed murder, but which of us can say we have never cursed another person in our heart? (Matt 5)

    Dear VoiceintheWilderness, Thank you for your helpful comments. Truth matters and while clearly much had to be cut for brevity, much has been unnecessarily altered. While many of the characters, especially Moses, are not accurately portrayed, more seriously there is no mention of the dreadful God-rejection (i.e. sin) and rebellion of the Israelites: Worshipping the golden calf idol at Sinai; grumbling against God; refusing to enter the promised land... to name just a few. These things are a reflection of the state of our own hearts, yet on more than one occasion God comes close to destroying them. And so there is no concept of God's extraordinary and undeserved grace shown towards them. One of the overriding themes of the Bible is, how can a perfect God relate to imperfect human beings? Sacrifices of animals are not enough. And yet, there is a continuous promise of payment for sin, of grace - and this for the whole world. This is answered only with the coming of Jesus. God himself says, β€œβ€˜It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone... I will take you out of the nations... I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws... you will be my people, and I will be your God. I will save you from all your uncleanness.... Then you will remember your evil ways and wicked deeds, and you will loathe yourselves for your sins and detestable practices. I want you to know that I am not doing this for your sake, declares the Sovereign Lord. Be ashamed and disgraced for your conduct, people of Israel!" (Ezekiel 36 v 22-32, abridged). The way to God really is open, despite our rejection of him, as the passage above says, and not just to those of Israel; through Jesus the promises in the middle of this passage are open to all who will turn to him. His death paid the necessary cost for sin that no other sacrifice could cover; it is enough for every sin. If anyone reading this does not yet know the freedom of forgiveness, and the peace of having a new heart, please speak to a Christian you know about this, find a church that faithfully teaches and explains the Bible, and carefully and thoughtfully read one of the gospel accounts of Jesus' life, asking God to help you to see the way to this new life.

    In response to Avoiceinthewilderness, I think you will find that the old testament does not much else than glorify violence, condone slavery, rape, murder and genocide. Its all very well quoting passages from the bible, but don't just choose the ones that make your immoral God look good, what about exodus 21, which tells who can be enslaved, how much to pay for them, how long they must remain with their master etc etc. And before you say "well that's the old testament, we're under a new covenant now", where are the ten commandments, the story of creation, Abraham, moses, and all the other 100 plus laws of God???? Wake up, the Bible is just a book, with no proof or evidence of authenticity.

    I hope the christian brothers learn a lesson from this story based on BIBLE, That there is only One God and that Man can not be God, forget about the creation of light first and then making the sky etc which is scientifically incorrect and proves that Bible is not the True and lateral word of God but the work of human beings As God can not make mistakes whatsoever.

    Interesting to watch but not a true representation of the text in Genesis. There are some errors and embellishments eg Sarah couldn't have caught up with Abraham as the journey to the sacrifice would have taken about 3 days, Moses reluctance as spokesman was not shown. Still good to see it being broadcast to a nation who are becoming increasingly ignorant of this important book.

    The persecution of the Israelites under Pharaoh is reflective of the persecution of the Palestinians under the Israelis. Looking at the world today, who's side do you think Jesus would be on, the oppressors or the oppressed?

    I found this programme very annoying. Why do all the Jews look European, Issac even had blonde hair. The Israelites are a middle eastern tribe, so would look like Arabs. Even the Egyptians were not portrayed as Africans, but had white skin. People really need to know that Jesus was a Jew and most probably had black hair and brown skin.

    Not nearly accurate enough esp concerning Prophet Abraham and the sacrifice - in which his son also prophet (The major faith disagree on which son btw) was informed by Abraham that God wanted a sacrifice and his son actually reassured him and and agrees willingly. Not nearly enough reverence for the Prophets (peace be upon them). Its an interesting show but the Prophets were not ordinary men but the ultimate teachers... some major points overlooked and glossed over too but at least someone is trying in oh so selfish times!

This series helps us understand Gods promises and even us non Jews can be spiritual descendants of Abraham .by faith in Jesus. I am sure many people will be inspired to read the bible to find out how we can truly be blessed. Well done channel 5 the UK needs this.

    While not a complete replica of the true events, it is very close to it. One major thing this series will do now is to make people THINK about GOD.... Of course, because people don't know and understand who God really is, they will be quick to use their tiny bioactive cranium to condemn the dealings of God. ..... It simply gets the more beautiful because people who think they are wiser than God will have their wisdom turned upside down to their astonishment. .... People, God has INFORMED us through His WRITTEN Word that He'll soon destroy the whole world with Fire just like He did at the time of Noah..... What are YOU doing about this? The Ark of Safety? Jesus Christ. Believe in Jesus Christ and you will mystically be transported into the New Ark.

    To wilfred duffin Jesus DID come to save the world and everybody in it, If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Rom 10:10. End of..:)

    It's ok I suppose but I have seen much better biblical stories on t.v. It doesn't even start at the beginning. Should have started with Genesis with Adam and Eve. Noah was only touched on not done properly. Moses parting the red sea was impressive , though.

    Looking forward to the rest of this series. It does however, show the ongoing tragedy of Israel/Palestine relations. They are all brothers and sisters historically and yet they choose to slaughter each other. God is not glory. If more of us were Darwinists the world would be a much more peaceful place. If the Christian world had not erased the role of women in it's birth it would also be a fairer, more peaceful world. Wonderful stories but mired deep in the falibility of men who told and retold it the way they wanted it. Religion is the most devisive construct in our world today.

    Somebody wrote " This has nothing to do with 'Jesus'. Christians need look elsewhere for their story." Jesus himself was born a Jew - he was the promised seed (the Messiah) that would be born in the line of Abraham - through Isaac. The scenario of Abram offering up Isaac as a sacrifice, pictured the pattern of things to come when God would offer up His only begotten Son, Jesus as a ransom for Adamic sin. The history of the Jewish people is vital to Christianity and concerns all true Christians. Too many church goers don't even read their Bible, let alone understand the history behind Christianity.

    This film is rubbish! It grossly misrepresents the Bible both in accuracy and in it's portrayal of the Bible characters.

    I watched this program with intrepidation, but what a wonderful surprise. It was a really professional movie and I enjoyed every minute of it, I hope the film has been seen in many homes tonight as there are very few places today where you can hear about the bible. Well done.

    The Bible is the story of the romance of the Jews with their God. This has nothing to do with 'Jesus'. Christians need look elsewhere for their story.

    TO EVERYONE IN THE UK! This series is truly going to change more lives than you can imagine! When it aired in my country, people even ended up giving their lives to Christ. And I think the reason for that is because so few people actually know the whole story. But deep down, they want to. From Genesis to Revelation, the series had me hooked. Since then, I too have grown more than I can say in my own faith. It's a Godsend for sure. :))

    Wilfred: He gave his life in order to teach us. He was crucified in order to show us the way. In that way he helped us. Lets watch the series and see if we can learn more. All the best.

    How I long that this series would cause many people to realise the absolute truth and relevance of the Bible, for every generation and culture, not just the necessity for Christian values, but the personal need for God in every individual life!
