Storyline

How much do you *really* know about how Christianity got started? Whether you are a Christian, atheist, or member of another faith, it's impossible to ignore the impact that Christianity has had on Western civilization. But most people, including many Christians, don't have a solid grasp of the history of early Christianity - even though it's hinted at in the New Testament. Many people still think the gospels were written by the people whose names adorn the books. Many people still think those people were eyewitnesses of Jesus. Many people don't realize how much Paul of Tarsus reinvented early Christianity to suit his own vision, and how much tension he created with the original disciples. Over the last century, New Testament scholars have examined the text word by word to tease apart the true history from accepted tradition.

Excellent

A very thought provoking look at the origins of Christianity. Who was the Messiah, who wrote the Gospels and what do we really know? This is an excellent examination of these issues from both sides of the faith divide that will leave you wanting to watch it over again; just to pick up on the weight of academic knowledge that passed you by while you were laughing at the humour in it. Highly entertaining!
