Historical Reenactment
16 July 2009 | by (Hollywood CA) – See all my reviews

Considered a documentary, this 2-hour History Channel special recreates the lives of the Twelve Apostles from their first meeting of Jesus until after His ascension, to Saint John's martyrdom.

Actor Martin Sheen narrates the film, which reveals the inner circle of Jesus Christ's original 12 first-century followers during and after Christ's death and resurrection. The message delivered by these untrained men--comprised of fishermen, tax collectors, agrarians, and a doctor--offers the promise of hope for the forgiveness of any man's sins committed, due to Christ's substitute payment and the intervening love of God for mankind (John 3:16).

The historical reenactment is based on the Book of Acts of the Apostles from the Bible and follows the apostles Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, James the Lesser, Thaddeus, Simon, and Judas through brotherhood, betrayal and redemption.

Reenactment actor Joseph Steven, a devote Christian, in the role of publican Saint Matthew is noted as actually having praised God in tongues during the filming of the Pentecost worship sequence.
