Shortly after Easter, one network channel started showing a limited series called The Bible AD. I have watched most of the episodes and have been intrigued. I have no idea how historically exact the facts presented are, but given that it is not a PBS production, I assume they have taken some licenses with history. Regardless, I have been into it and fascinated by all the groups represented: the Nazarenes, the zealots, the high priests, the Romans. The show starts with the crucifixion of Christ, followed by the resurrection, and then Pentecost and the struggle of the followers of Jesus to gather, preach, avoid persecution, and face their own doubts, fears, and internal disagreements.
