Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Bible contains lots of violent and bloody scenes, including beatings, drownings, and the murdering of infants and adults. It also features a very lengthy and graphic reenactment of a crucifixion. Adultery is discussed, and men are often shown shirtless and in loin cloths and occasionally women are shown undressed (but no real nudity). Wine is sometimes consumed during religious ceremonies and over meals. All of this is offered in context, but it may be too intense for younger and/or sensitive viewers.
Contains discussions about having children; subtle references are made to having sex, promiscuity, and adultery. Men are often shirtless and in loincloths; on one occasion a woman is shown in various stages of undress, but no nudity is visible.
Contains a lot of graphically violent images. People (including infants) are shown being stabbed, whipped, bludgeoned, drowned, and crucified; images of bloody wounds and dead people of all ages are frequent. The sacrificial slaughter of animals is also visible.
The series offers interpretations of select biblical stories that are believed to have had a major impact on the world. Not surprisingly, belief in God and Judeo-Christian values are major themes here.
