Netflix and The Bible

Last Friday, we held our first Netflix viewing night. "The Bible" is a successful miniseries with 10 episodes, that originally premiered on the History Channel. It got great reviews, and as Christmas is coming up, we decided to watch the episode that focused on the birth of Jesus Christ.

"Hope" is the 6th episode of the miniseries, and we got to see what life was like before the birth of Jesus, and precisely what Jesus had to go through. Spoiler alert: it's pretty graphic, and not for the faint of heart, but it's definitely worth a watch. If you guys do catch an episode or the entire series, you should compare this adaptation of the Bible to others available!

After our group discussion on the dramatic episode, a few of us headed out to iTea, one of the many bubble tea shops available downtown. Kingston has come a long way since the opening of Classics Tea Lounge!

This Friday, we're having Christmas Cell at Newman House! It's our annual tradition to celebrate the end of the Fall term and of course, the birth of Jesus (it's never too early to celebrate that!).

Come and join us! We'd love to see you all :)
