Here is what people are saying about the The Bible Series Box Set
2 Star Rating  "pre-owned and nasty" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
Had nasty crusty finger prints on dvd's I almost sent it back! I remembered it was used, and still was disapointed that it would be sent so nasty!
 
4 Star Rating  "entertaining" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
This film gives a very entertaining view of Solomon's life. It goes way overboard making Sheba a wife and the mother of his favored heir (no mention of that in my Bible), but it does bring many passages to life.
 
5 Star Rating  "An Amazing Movie Based On Scripture - I had to go back to read I Kings and the Song of Songs To See What Was Accurate" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from USA
The Bible - Solomon is an amazing dramatic look at the life of Solomon, most of which I remember from the Bible. It was beautifully done. The settings were gorgeous. The actors were well chosen.

As far as accuracy, I suspect there's a broad range, with some scriptural and some right out of someone's creative mind. It did put things in better perspective for me and I'll enjoy reading those stories in the Bible much more after watching it.

EDITED to say that I had to go to the Bible and read I Kings and the Song of Songs, just to see what was actually there and what wasn't.

I was amazed that so many things I had just skimmed over in the past when I read were so much more interesting now. They were real people and their relationships are a little easier for me to understand (and care about) now.

One amusing thing that I DIDN'T find in the Bible was elephants in the caravan of the Queen of Sheba. It mentioned camels, but no elephants. That makes sense to me because they were crossing the desert, which camels are equipped to do, but I don't think elephants could handle it. I may be wrong, of course.

I'm reading "Wisdom's Daughter" at the same time, a book that tells the story from first one character, then another. All of this together makes a study of Solomon stick with me because I'm reading about real people, knowing of course that both the book and the movie used creative license.

 
4 Star Rating  "done pretty good, worth watching!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from northeastern Ohio, USA
As with several of the other movies in the Bible Collection/The Bible series done by these folks, you will enjoy this one. There's a pretty accurate Biblical following here, and no hiding the errors (nor the grandeur) of Solomon's life. Sometimes (of course, it's Hollywood and not from Bible scholars eh?) Solomon's word in the Bible are used in questionable ways/scenarious, but alas, it's not completely pathetic or anything.

Sexuality is borderline at 2 points in the long film (completely bare back shot of Solomon going to a towel from the tub, & Solomon kissing down the navel of what is basically "hidden" of the naked Queen from Sheba).

This film focuses heavily on King Solomon's weakness towards the women (which is not something to be hidden, but we don't think BIBLICAL movies need to show the sensuality in a modern "nudity-type" way). The Queen of Sheba is used for a little romance tossed in for the ladies out there . You are reminded in this film that Solomon started out fairly well, and worthy of being a faithful son unto King David & unto the God of Israel, but who then falls rapidly and loses MUCH character & faithfulness until the end of his reign on his death bed. The setting for his son and the House of Israel's rebellion also are understood thru this film.

This is a good addition to your Biblical collection shelf, and we say "buy it." You'll enjoy the many lessons therein. However, we recommend fast forwarding thru the 10 seconds or less of Solomon going for his towel and of him kissing down the Queen's front side. If a film isn't over-done w/ these bad scenes, you may do like our family and tape a post-it to the cover saying "fast fwd thru 'such-and-such' scene." Otherwise, if it's overdone, we simply throw it away (or better yet, view it from a library rental before deciding to buy when possible).

We would like to recommend adding this one too, to anybody's Biblical movie shelf. But we have one exception which we'll address last herein.

It's done fairly well, Biblically accurate for the most part, and conveys the same message as the Scriptures tend to in the Biblical areas it traverses. Our family enjoyed this one, on many levels. We'd say "buy this one!" as it's pretty good....but....

The one exception to us recommending this film, is going to only strike a positive/helpful note with few people (we realize), but nevertheless....the problem we have with this film is that real live human beings with real life families (husbands, and/or wives, and/or children) are being intimate with other people outside of their family all for the sake of "it's just a job, it's acting." We personally don't believe that God will every approve body-close-holding and smooching, as "just a job so it's okay" when it comes to non-married people. You simply won't find that kind of behavior ever supported or condoned in the Bible. As i said, we realize this won't be a popular stance, in a Media-soaked culture, but nonetheless...it's the flat truth. So we cannot recommend you actually buy this film. There ARE films on the market, few though, that have actual actors who are husbands and wives being intimate on screen...or that have husbands and wives pictured who aren't married outside the movie but BARELELY touch in any intimate way (like FireProof, Facing the Giants, Time Changer, Flywheel, and others). We recommend you just place your own family member in the actor's spot, and see how you'd feel watching your partner or child doing the intimacy with a complete stranger (IN FRONT OF THEIR CHILDREN OR SPOUSE). Thanks for "listening."

Cuatro DVD's que tratan de personajes del Antiguo Testamento cuyo camino fue creer en Dios. Génesis explica bien cómo se creó el mundo. Ruth, Jeremías y Salomón muestran cómo fue su vida. Lo recomiendo para todos los que aman verdaderamente al Señor.
