I received an email from Roma Downey and Mark Burnett yesterday about Sunday night’s premier of History Channel’s “The Bible,” which garnered nearly 15 million viewers.
Here’s what she wrote:
Number one on tv…Number one on history website…Number one on twitter. People all over our nation are talking about the Bible. People are talking about God , what a blessing that is…
We are so grateful to you all for your love and encouragement and prayers. God is moving.
With gratitude and love,
All glory to God.
Ironically, I was at the National Religious Broadcaster’s Convention in Nashville over the weekend and staying at a hotel that didn’t carry the History Channel! As a bonus, though, I did have the pleasure of meeting Diogo Morgado who represents Jesus in the miniseries. He is a delightful and humble young man.
“How can you play the Son of God? You can’t,” he told a group there. “What I had the privilege of playing was simply the words of Christ and taking the journey of the scriptures.”
Please join with me in praying that from this spectacular production will come many new lovers and members of the Christian faith.
Did you watch? What did you think?
