What was life like in the time of Jesus? What were the origins of Christianity?
A new Discovery Channel documentary co-hosted by University of Illinois at Chicago biblical scholar Rachel Havrelock aims to shed new light on these questions through examination of emerging research that explores the life of Jesus and life in the first century.
Part 1: Childhood--The dramatic reality of the Age of Jesus. A journey through the Holy Land with three expert guides who investigate the latest archaeological and historical evidence to put together a portrait of the early years of Jesus and the forces that shaped his life.
Part 2: The Mission--Three experts unearth the reality of Jesus's life and times, and discover a world of starvation, injustice and desperation for salvation. Jesus was one of many miracle makers who sought to make their people free.
Part 3: Last Days--Jesus entered Jerusalem at the start of the final week of his life. Everything he did was a political challenge to the Roman authorities and the High Priest of the Temple. Three experts unearth the reality of his attempt to free his people from oppression.
