From Jesus to Christ: The First Christians


Episode Info

The crucifixion and resurrection transformed the religious and political leader Jesus into the redeeming figure of Christ. As God in man, Jesus foretold this transformation when He said, "If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me." This four-part series chronicles the process by which a small, fringe cult took hold first in the Roman Empire, and then spread throughout the world to become the religion of millions of people. This first episode examines the life of Jesus, who lived as an ordinary man for three decades, and then follows the events of his three-year ministry that culminated in his prophesied betrayal, death, and resurrection. Biblical scholars, archaeologists, and historians share their knowledge about the life of Jesus, with new evidence and insights about his life and works.
