About this item
"The Bible Collection Giftset" contains "Abraham," "David," "Jacob," "Joseph," "Moses" and "Samson And Delilah." "Abraham" - "Go away from your father's house to a land I will show you. Make a great nation. And I will bless all those who bless you and curse all those who curse you." A humble shepherd named Abraham hears these words from God and embarks on an epic journey to the Promised Land. With his family and a handful of followers, Abraham faces thirst, famine, war, the might of Pharaoh and his own doubts to become the father of three great religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Richard Harris (the "Harry Potter" series, "Unforgiven") leads a stellar cast including Barbara Hershey, Vittorio Gassman and Maximilian Schell in this sweeping Old Testament story. "David" - David is a simple shepherd boy chosen as king of Israel under the watchful eyes of the prophets Samuel and Nathan. His rise to power is met with test of adversity - from the battle with the Philistine giant Goliath to personal threat from King Saul. David's 40-year rule is driven by unstoppable ego, unwavering desire, a drunken sense of entitlement and plagued by tremendous battles, betrayals and loss - from his forbidden and passionate love with Bathsheba to his struggles with enemies both within and without. "Jacob" - For seven long years, Jacob has labored to earn the right to marry beautiful Rachel. Now the seven years are up - but Rachel's devious father substitutes his elder daughter on the wedding night. Matthew Modine ("Full Metal Jacket") and Lara Flynn Boyle ("Men In Black II") play Jacob and Rachel in one of the greatest love stories from the Bible. Highlights of Jacob's life - how he usurped his brother Esau's birthright and blessing, the pillow of stone, the ladder to heaven, wrestling with God - are set against the heartache and hope of his relationship with the woman he seems destined never to possess. Sustained by his faith in God and his love for Rachel, Jacob persevere... and becomes the father of the 12 tribes of Israel. "Joseph" - Cast into a pit by his jealous brothers, young Joseph pleads for mercy. Instead, the brothers sell the terrified boy into slavery in Egypt. But Joseph turns this agonizing betrayal into triumph. Academy Award winners Ben Kingsley and Martin Landau highlight an outstanding cast in this beloved Biblical tale of treachery and redemption. Joseph uses his gift for divining dreams to rise from slave to Pharaoh's most trusted aide, saving Egypt from seven years of famine. Then his brothers travel to Egypt in search of food...and right into Joseph's power. "Forgiveness is greater than vengeance," Joseph declares. "Compassion more powerful than anger." But can he forgive so grievous a wrong? "Moses" - Faith in God. Escape from slavery. The two great themes from the Old Testament book of Exodus are given thrilling new life in this recreation of how Moses led the children of Israel from bondage in Egypt to freedom in the Promised Land. Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley ("Gandhi") is Moses and Frank Langella, David Suchet and Christopher Lee portray other powerful Biblical figures in this monumental production. All the glory and spectacle are here: Moses' childhood in Pharaoh's court, God's voice from the burning bush, the dreadful plagues, the parting of the Red Sea, the granting of the Ten Commandments and the long-awaited return to Canaan. Share the journey - and rekindle your sense of wonder. "Samson And Delilah" - Samson is a simple shepherd with the strength of a titan and the destiny to fight the Philistines and General Tariq. Delilah 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.
