Product Description

This epic network television mini-series, starring Anthony Hopkins brings to life the precarious existence of early Christianity. The new movement is beset by violent opposition from without and constant turmoil from within. Two key leaders emerge--Peter and Paul--who struggle to keep the faith alive. This dramatic presentation follows the pair, together and separately, through three epochal decades. Included are the stoning of Stephen, the road to Damascus, their encounter in Jerusalem, their conflicts over how the word of Christ should be spread. Paul’s travels to Asia Minor and Greece, Peter and Paul’s clashes over Jewish law, and Peter’s decision to follow in Paul’s courageous footsteps. The drama concludes in Rome in approximately A.D. 64 with the beheading of Paul and the crucifixion of Peter under Emperor Nero.

Note: DVD is not defective. In between Chapters 18 and 19, the picture freezes and a new chapter begins. As this is a long program, this is merely the start of the 2nd tape.

Review: Truly demonstrates St. Paul's zeal and sense of urgency in delivering our Lord's message. Provides insight into the relationshp between these two strong men, gives us a glimpse of the sacrifices they both made, and the hardships they endured in the name of Christianity.
