In the Beginning (2000) Miniserie Antiguo Testamento

In the Beginning es una miniserie, dividida en dos episodios, dirigida por Kevin Connor. Protagonizada por Martin Landau and Jacqueline Bisset. Fue estrenada en el canal NBC el 12 de noviembre de 2000.


Cuenta la historia de los viajes y viajeros de la tribu de Abraham (Martin Landau). Ambientada alrededor del año 2000 antes de Cristo, la narración comienza con "Génesis 12," wherein the Lord has kicked Abraham and company out of their country to a land of milk and honey to be named later. In order to keep up the morale of his followers while on the road, Abraham gives a sermon that sums up God's creation of the universe. By illustrating this sermon with stock footage and special-effects shots, the producers attempt to make a connection between sermons of old and popular entertainments of today.

From there, the twists and turns of the Old Testament are treated like a soap opera. Family dramas take center stage, whether it's God testing Abraham by telling him to kill his son in sacrifice, Joseph gaining power in Egypt after being sold to slave traders by his brothers, or one of the many other stories of brothers fighting (Cain and Abel, Isaac and Ishmael, etc.). Many events are visualized such as the plagues and the parting of the Red Sea, to name but two.
