Jesus' Many Faces

The Story of the Storytellers

The first gospel was written almost 40 years after Jesus' death. Were they historically accurate, objective accounts? Or intended as proclamations of faith? Explore the origins of the Gospels

This program traces the life of Jesus of Nazareth, exploring the message that helped his ministry grow and the events that led to his crucifixion around 30 C.E.

The film then turns to the period that followed Jesus' death, examining the rise of Christianity and concluding with the first revolt-the bloody and violent siege of Jerusalem and the beginning of a rift between Christianity and Judaism.

The broadcast explores new evidence suggesting that Jesus' followers, because of their diversity and the differences in their cultures and languages, looked at and interpreted Jesus and his teachings in many different ways.
