“The Bible” is an epic five-week, 10-hour television mini-series premiering March 3, 2013 on the History Channel.
The final episode of the series will air on Easter Sunday [March 31] and will feature the death and resurrection of Jesus.
The 10-hour, five-part docudrama will span the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, presenting some of its best-known stories, including Noah’s Ark, the Exodus, Daniel in the lions’ den and the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.
Since the entire Bible can’t be covered in 10 hours, the miniseries, which was filmed in Morocco , focuses on a select group of stories and features such compelling figures as Abraham, Moses and David. Some stories had to be compressed for artistic purposes.
