The series starts off with the Crucifixion, be ready for the gruesome process of Jesus' death, which very closely matches scripture. The disciples, Mary, Jesus' mother and many more must work through their emotions of what the "Nazarene's" death meant to them and the world. A cast full of diversity helps bring the story to each one personally and brings this piece of history to life in modern times. Highly recommend this for everyone, but be aware of some violent scenes for children. Specifically the opening sequence in the first episode. Excited to have the series roll out over the next few weeks and hopefully the Bible is closely followed.
