Early Christianity faced powerful obstacles: Roman might and the power politics of ancient Jerusalem. Yet the new faith transcended origins in a Roman province to absorb the capital of the empire. Using the words of Paul and other ancient writers, interviews with contemporary scholars, and dramatic re-enactments, the film explores how two men weathered crippling disagreements and political persecution to lead a resilient religious movement.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
