  1. I don't think I ever remember so many Easter type specials. I wish they would do something that children could actually watch.

  2. I'm sure ABC will play both specials again this year. They probably have a contract obligating them to air them.

  3. I'm interested to see UP's Noah movie. Hopefully this one is more Biblically accurate than last years Hollywood Noah movie with Russell Crowe.

  4. After the History Channel had record breaking ratings last year for airing The Bible series, it seems that all the networks are seeking some sort of connection with their own versions of The Bible this year. It's a ratings grab for the networks. Pure and Simple. But, even though their intentions may be wrong, I pray the message behind the cross will reach many people. God bless you and thank you for sharing these Easter programs.

  5. We have to support and watch these wonderful films depicting the life and times of Lord, Savior. In spite of what the secular agenda is, more and more people are seeking the truth in God's word and recognizing the world is upside down.....peace....

    1. I'm a agnostic but I enjoy watching Easter specials and biblical movies. Even though I don't necessarily believe,
      the stories are interesting and the messages are good.
