Sex & Nudity

  • Peter and Eden kiss a few times, but not in a sexual way (they are married).
  • Married couple kiss. Not sexual
  • Rape is implied with Mary as a soldier shoves her down and approaches her. Two men smell her and imply they do not want to have sex with her.
  • A man returns from a long journey and wants to reunite sexually with his wife but is prevented by unwanted guests. Tastefully done and played for laughs.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a fist fight between a man a his wife's brothers.
  • The new season has a scene that shows several men are seen crucified: one of them is seen being nailed into a cross while he screams in pain (no graphic detail)
  • First episode includes a woman with blood on her hands and a man with blood on his face.


  • Romans insult the Hebrews, but not vulgar.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • The opening of one of the most recent ep shows: a child falling off a tree and getting paralized, a woman suddenly dying in the midst of labor, a couple of men fighting, a man being beaten by a soldier, and more. After the opening a man is held with a knife at his throat (he survives, as it was just an essay)

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The last episode shows Nicodemus crying as he can't join the disciples. This scene is very heartbreaking.
