"This is the story of what it was like to be Jesus, to be born into tyranny, to be executed for preaching harmony and forgiveness to oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s own warring people, and what it was like for his disciples to risk death by carrying the message of salvation. Throughout the religion DVD Who Was Jesus, historians, archaeologists and theologians examine all kinds of evidence, and dig deeper into Jesus' life and the times he lived in than ever before.
Childhood: 'The greatest story ever told...' is not the whole story. The Gospels record the teachings of Jesus and the marvels of his ministry. The Jesus DVD states that they leave out what has been taken for granted for two thousand years: the dramatic reality of the Age of Jesus! On an extraordinary journey of discovery through the Holy Land with three expert guides, this film investigates the latest archaeological and historical evidence to piece together a portrait of Jesus. Here, we understand his early years: from birth to a young man - analyzing the forces that shaped the life and work of a man who would change history forever.
The Mission: Jesus was a young man with a determination to change the world of starvation and oppression he grew up in. In AD 30, Galilee was a land under occupation by the Roman Empire. Many charismatic Jewish leaders preached rebellion and resistance. Jesus preached a message of peace - but he was not unique. Now was he the only miracle maker in his time. Three bible experts walk in his footsteps to discover the real world of Jesus - from his life-changing meeting with John the Baptist, through his ministry on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, to his fateful entry into Jerusalem.
The Last Days: The Passion is well known. But much of its details were recorded hundreds of years after Jesus' death. Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey, but this familiar Easter image was not just a celebration, but a powerful political challenge. It started a chain of defiant events that would see Jesus crucified. But where and how? Three bible experts examine new archaeological digs deep under the city and the ruins of the Old Temple. Many of the famous sites of Jesus' suffering, death and resurrection now have to be re-sited! And many of the reputations of the key characters - Judas, Pontius Pilate - will have to be redrawn! This final part of ""Who Was Jesus?"" examines the historical reality of the greatest story ever told."
