    Absolutely loved it! Such a fresh & professional take on an amazing story to be told. Was devastated to find out that season 2 was cancelled. Even more, my heart broke to feel like episode 12 was interrupted mid-way and so did not feel like an ending to season 1. NBC, what's up? Your decision does not make sense. Would love to see this project revive & flourish! I would even be willing to support the crew financially. Should we do crowdsourcing?

    What an amazing show! It gives the story of the aftermath of Jesus's death a fantastic perspective with actors that do a SUPERB job. My fav being the high priest. What an incredible character with lots of personality who is supposed to be the bad guy here but in reality, he really wants the best for his people. Don't forget to watch the previous series The Bible.
