Storyline

A.D. picks up where the smash hit, "The Bible," left off, continuing the greatest story ever told and exploring the exciting and inspiring events that followed the Crucifixion of Christ. As most of the world knows, the Crucifixion was only the beginning of the story. The immediate aftermath of Christ's death had a massive impact on his disciples, his mother Mary, and key political and religious leaders of the era, completely altering the entire world in an instant. Watch as the disciples struggle to survive and share their beliefs, guiding us from the sorrow of Christ's ultimate sacrifice to the awe-inspiring wonder of the Resurrection and beyond. From Executive Producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett comes an uplifting spiritual journey through the later chapters of biblical history. Written by NBC

Inaccuracy
27 April 2015 | by rtrimflyer-1See all my reviews

This is no way a comprehensive review. I have enjoyed much of the series that I have seen so far. However, I was very disturbed by the portrayal of two of the early Church's supporters, Ananias and his wife Sapphira. The show indicates that they died because they did not contribute the whole of the proceeds of the sale of their property. While this is true, it is true because they lied about it, not because they were required to contribute 100% and did not. Acts chapter 5 makes it quite clear . . . "Didn't it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn't the money at your disposal? . . . You have not lied to men but to God." To me, the portrayal of the situation in the show frames God as a tyrant.
