Bringing the Bible to Life
As we study Jesus’ life and his sacrifice for us, it helps to understand the context of his time on earth. The Bible is a five-part series from Executive Producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett that breathes life into tales of faith and courage from Genesis through Revelation. We’ve been chosen as the official Bible App for the series, and very soon you’ll be able to watch video content right in the Bible App. The Bible series begins 3-3-13; check your local TV listings for times.
