Movie Summary

Rating:
G
The Bible is the retelling of the first 22 chapters of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, from acclaimed director John Huston. The primary characters in the story are the couple that begin a pilgrimage which begins the story of Israel finding a homeland, Abraham (George C. Scott) and Sarah (Ava Gardner). Three angels (Peter O'Toole) appear to the elderly couple to tell them that Sarah will in her old age bear a son. This begins the classic story of faith, one in which a barren couple gives birth and then have to put everything on the line for their God. They must leave the land of Ur to go to the land to which God has called them. Along the way, Abraham must make the greatest of sacrifices and give up his son on Mount Moriah. However, God proves himself faithful. The broader narrative includes the story of Adam (Michael Parks) and Eve (Ulla Bergryd), the Tower of Babel, and the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, in which God rains down fire on the sinful cities. This is an epic story of the founding families of the Jewish faith.moreless
