TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Attempts to offer a fresh look at a traditional tale notwithstanding, A.D.: The Bible Continues doesn't do enough to set itself apart from its many predecessors.

A.D. The Bible Continues: Season 1 Photos

Tv Season Info

Based on the Bible, this miniseries picks up where its predecessor, The Bible, left off and begins with the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. The story then continues with the first ten chapters of the Book of Acts and highlights the apostles and their devotion to spread the gospel, regardless of the cost.

Critic Reviews for A.D. The Bible Continues Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8)

A.D. for the most part has a fairly solid script, although Pilate tends to go 20th century at times.

The padding can only get worse as the miniseries goes on.

Handsomely produced (on what appears to be a considerably larger budget than The Bible), diversely cast-with nary a "name" actor in sight-and fresh in its approach to the texts, A.D. deserves more than most of its ilk to be called inspired.

Apr 7, 2015 | Full Review…

The series gets points for sticking closely to its source material and promoting positive messages that, while steeped in Christian tradition, have widespread appeal -- among them faith, hope, love, and loyalty.

It's an old narrative that hasn't been modernized as much as it has been repackaged in a snappy manner. It mostly works.

Apr 4, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Although it's not so awful as to inspire wrath, A.D. The Bible Continues is one of those rare occasions in which I can't articulate a single logical reason why anyone, devout or not, should tune in to watch.

Apr 4, 2015 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

With its political maneuvering and gritty feel, there's more influence of Game of Thrones than Cecil B. DeMille here.

Apr 6, 2015 | Full Review…

A.D. does not stick with one style which hurts the overall flow of the show. Any realism is betrayed by the cheesy effects and poor direction.

Top Critic

When you take on a familiar story like the Bible, you need to offer a reason for people to watch. A.D. doesn't do that.

Apr 3, 2015 | Full Review…

Anyone who loved The Bible and yearned for a sequel is likely to find A.D. satisfying.
