Added DiffLines:

* LeastCommonSkinTone: While the magi in the nativity scene make sure to depict Balthasar as darker skinned (which he is often depicted as) and plenty of extras and characters are depicted as being a tan colour, most people in BibleTimes are white.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticAdaptation: The "Nativity" episode shows the Magi walking into the manger in Bethlehem where Jesus was born - rather than arriving several years after the fact (either at his baptism or not) not on his actual birthday but on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epiphany_(holiday) Epiphany]]. This was done to avoid plotholes and to give a conclusion to their 'story'.

Added DiffLines:

* OffModel: It's still a Creator/HannaBarbera cartoon - so this is bound to happen:
** Margo's hand visibly vanishes during the Moses episode.
** At the end of the Nativity, Derek's eyes are crossed.

Added DiffLines:

* AnachronicOrder: While the videos do not have any sort of overarching narrative, there ''is'' a chronological order, and they weren't made in this order.


Added DiffLines:

* AnimationBump: Compared to the usual stuff by Hanna Barbera. In all fairness, these were made in the 1980s and the 1990s.


Added DiffLines:

* WeirdnessCensor: Only a few episodes have the other characters find Derek, Margo, and Moki's clothing and 20th century mannerisms confusing. Most others just take it in stride.

* OutOfOrder: Kind of. The episodes are generally ordered chronologically, starting with "The Creation" and ending with "The Easter Story", but that's not the order they were released in. In fact, the episodes were produced in no particular order, ending with "Queen Esther" in 1992. Some continuity problems stem from this, if we are too assume the time-travelers are going through the Bible chronologically. For example, in "Moses" (released in 1986) the gang is amazed at having arrived in Egypt. However, they were already in Egypt in the chronologically previous episode "Joseph and His Brothers" (released in 1990).

* TakeAThirdOption: The show has done this a couple times with Biblical controversies:
** Traditionally, Vashti is seen as a wicked StrawFeminist while Esther is praised for being a properly submissive wife. Since the 19th century, there has been a feminist AlternativeCharacterInterpretation that views Vashti as an independent-minded heroine and Esther as [[RealWomenDontWearDresses a worthless pushover]]. In the ''Greatest Adventure'' version, both women are portrayed sympathetically, with the apparent reasoning that Vashti only had herself to be concerned about whereas Esther did what she had to do to save her people.
** "The Easter Story" dodges the whole issue of responsibility for the death of Christ. When Derek, Margo, and Moki start to go down that path, Mark puts the issue aside by saying that it doesn't really matter since Christ was fated to die for humanity's sins anyway.
