Kudos for attempting such an ambitious and controversial look at ancient books that relate to scripture and might even have become scripture. There is a lot of information here, and much of it is even true. I must complain that I disagreed with the assertion that bishop Arius believed that Jesus was just human. He thought Jesus was of like substance with God the Father, which was not the answer his colleagues were looking for (they said, exact same substance) but neither is it the same as saying Jesus was not divine: like substance sets Jesus apart from ordinary men; he was divine according to Arius, just distinguishable from the Father. Talking head John Dominic Crosson implied this and would have said it, but the filmmakers had made up their minds and went with the simplistic characterization. Anyway, I recommend this documentary for its breadth despite my quibbles.
