* 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.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Since these videos [[AnimationAgeGhetto were made for children]], it was assumed that [[ViewersAreMorons they wouldn't question]] the animals that were placed in the Garden. However, baraminologists and taxonomists would agree that placing ''modern'' species and sub-species in the garden when Genesis ''clearly'' states "created kinds" is a bit of a problem. Especially since it increases several thousandfold how many animals Adam would have had to name. It also complicates things for the Noah episode, an issue ignored by that episode as well.

Similar to ''SuperBook'' and ''The Flying House'', the series tried to focus on making the characters from the biblical stories relatable and believable. Surprisingly, it also adhered as closely to the original stories as possible, keeping many of the elements that most MoralGuardians quietly edit out to make the stories "appropriate" for children, editing only the relative closeness of events in order to keep within the 30-minute time frame.

Developed by HannaBarbera from 1985 to 1993, ''The Greatest Adventure: Stories from the Bible'' was a 13-episode direct-to-video series that featured three young explorers, Derek, Margo, and Moki, traveling through time via unexplained Doorways of Time, which allow them to witness some of the major events recorded in Literature/TheBible. Often even within the same episode, they would stumble across one of the Doorways, allowing them to witness events from the same story that took place years later.

Because of the close adherence, the series took the biblical stories very seriously; it was usually the side adventures of the time travelers that featured any comedy, although they often overlapped with the main story as the heroes tried to help the Biblical figures out in whatever way they could.

The series was a personal effort from Joe Barbera, a lifelong and devout Catholic. Because of the close adherence, the series took the biblical stories very seriously; it was usually the side adventures of the time travelers that featured any comedy, although they often overlapped with the main story as the heroes tried to help the Biblical figures out in whatever way they could.
