Executive producers Roma Downey ("The Bible") and Mark Burnett ("The Bible," "The Voice") take the smash hit miniseries "The Bible" and continue the greatest story ever told exploring the exciting, spiritual and inspiring events that followed the Crucifixion of Christ and Resurrection through the later chapters of biblical history.
Christ’s Crucifixion and Resurrection 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.
Initially, Jesus’ (Juan Pablo Di Pace) disciples are sorrowful over His death and hide in terror from the relentless pursuit by Temple Authorities led by High Priest Caiaphas (Richard Coyle) and Roman soldiers under orders from Governor Pontius Pilate (Vincent Regan) to imprison them.
For the followers, every day is a fight for survival, and their mission to spread the word to the world seems impossible.
"However the amazing miracle of the Resurrection and the arrival of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples at Pentecost enable them to inspire more people to join."
"The growing church brings challenges for Peter (Adam Levy), John (Babou Alieu Ceesay) and Mary Magdalene (Chipo Chung) as they face trials and imprisonments, persecutions and punishments, all the while trying to understand the God-given power granted to them as they transition from the sorrow of Christ’s ultimate sacrifice to the awe-inspiring wonder of the Resurrection and beyond."
