About this show

This epic story picks up exploring a tiny band of followers, every day is a fight for survival, and their mission to spread the Word to the world seems impossible. The growing church brings growing challenges for Peter, John and Mary Magdalene, and they are pushed to the limit, facing trials and imprisonments, persecutions and punishments, whilst trying to understand the God-given power granted to them. Jerusalem hurtles towards full-blown war, and Jesus' followers struggle amidst the chaos. But when Peter is asked for salvation through Jesus Christ, Peter finally understands just how far they have come.

Thanks NBC for sticking with the WORD. Even though some might look at casting as a flaw I salute your effort and not do what Hollywood did in that travesty Noah and Exodus. I want more of this hope its coming down the pike.

The show is pretty good, and my kids really liked it. However, i don't know how many times i had to tell my kids, 'the bible doesnt say anything about this or that.' It is fun to watch but they really added a lot that wasnt in the bible. Hopefully watching this show causes people to read the actual account. Of course they might be surprised to find that over half of what they saw on tv isnt in the bible.
