Several pastor and Christian leaders had positive things to say about the TV miniseries, The Bible, which aired on History channel in March 2013. Expressing his views in writing, Franklin Graham said, it was fitting that the series aired during the month leading up to Easter, because it would remind people of the sacrifice Jesus made for the world. Graham said it was good to turn to the truth of Scripture and remember the gift of salvation and forgiveness that Jesus provided. He acknowledged that some story lines were interpreted differently, but wrote, “the truth is that in all things the Lord Jesus Christ is seen lifted up before the world and glorified as the King of kings.”—Jim L.
