Moses is awe-struck when God, in the form of a burning bush, calls him to guide the Israelites out of bondage. The reluctant leader and his flock begin the treacherous journey to the Promised Land.

Yet these Israelites are God’s chosen people, and the waters part, allowing their safe passage.
Starring Ben Kingsley

Joseph, the enemy of his jealous brothers, is sold to a powerful Egyptian and faces unbearable tests of cruelty and pain. Joseph's master's wife falsely accuses him of treachery and rape. What looks like sure tragedy ends in the greatest triumph in this powerful epic as the goodness of God transcends the evil intents of men.

Samson and Delilah
Samson and Delilah is a stunning film based on the most provocative of all Biblical tales. Samson (Eric Thal) is a simple shepherd with the strength of a titan and the destiny to fight the Philistines and General Tariq (Dennis Hopper). Delilah (Elizabeth Hurley) is a Philistine beauty, torn between her love for the shepherd and loyalty to her people. As told in the Old Testament, Samson's betrayal by Delilah left him in slavery. But Samson's epic revenge vanquished his Philistine foes and made him one of the greatest heroes of the Bible. Samson and Delilah is the powerful tale of a deception that brought down an empire and sealed their names in eternity.

Here is one of the greatest sagas in all human history—the story of Israel's greatest king. He became a nationally known hero while still a teenager in his battle with the giant Goliath. Thereupon his life was caught up in the whirlwind of his people’s life and destiny. Never far from danger, political intrigue, the jealousy of opponents, and the problems caused by his own surging passions, David, nevertheless, emerged as a "man after God's own heart."
Starring Nathaniel Parker as David.
This powerful film, which premiered on TNT and stars Richard Harris and Barbara Hershey, is based on the moving Bible story in which an ordinary shepherd is called upon by God to show his abiding faith in extraordinary ways. Abraham and his wife, Sarah, embark on a difficult journey through the desert to the Promised Land where Abraham would become father to countless generations.
The story begins with the creation of man and woman, the sin committed by Adam and Eve, and their banishment from Paradise. The story continues with the first crime committed by mankind, Cain's murder of his brother, the condemnation of God, and mankind's corruption and evil. The choice of Noah, a just and upright man, to build the Ark, the flood and its clearing the way for a new mankind, the pact of the eternal Covenant between God and all living beings, are told through the clear and simple words of an old nomad shepherd.
Following the conquest of Babylon, the King of Persia gives a banquet for his people, but his wife, Vashti, refuses to attend. Ahasuerus disowns Vashti and goes in search of her replacement. In his harem, he meets the young girl Esther and falls in love with her. Esther then reveals to Ahasuerus that she is Jewish and asks him to show her people mercy because of a planned genocide of the Jews by the King’s right-hand man, Haman. In doing so, she saves the lives of many innocent people.
