In this five-part documentary, Hershel Shanks travels from Galilee to Jerusalem in search of the first century world in which Jesus lived and died. Includes visits to Nazareth, Sepphoris, Capernaum, Bethsaida, Kursi, Qumran and Jerusalem. In each installment, Shanks interviews eminent archaeologists and New Testament scholars about the sites associated with Jesus and other gospel figures. A trip to Qumran, the site where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered, gives insight into the Jewish context of Jesus' teachings. This non-denominational film is the first and only documentary focusing on the archaeological evidence of Jesus and early Christianity.
