    "A.D. The Bible Continues" on NBC

    SUNDAY April 5th on NBC @9pm


    A.D. The Bible Continues - NBC

    A.D. The Bible Continues (TV Mini-Series 2015) - IMDb


    ABOUT THE SHOW
    From executive producers Roma Downey ("The Bible") and Mark Burnett ("The Bible," "The Voice") comes an uplifting spiritual journey through the later chapters of biblical history. "A.D. The Bible Continues" picks up where the smash hit miniseries "The Bible" left off, continuing the greatest story ever told and exploring the exciting and inspiring events that followed the Crucifixion of Christ.

    The immediate aftermath of Christ's death 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. Beginning at that fateful moment of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, "A.D. The Bible Continues" will focus on the disciples who had to go forward and spread the teachings of Christ to a world dominated by political unrest, and the start of a whole new religion that would dramatically reshape the history of the world.

    Jesus (Juan Pablo Di Pace) dies on the cross at the hands of the Romans, deserted by even his most loyal followers. Peter (Adam Levy) and the disciples are hunted by Temple authorities led by High Priest Caiaphas (Richard Coyle) and Roman soldiers under orders from Governor Pontius Pilate (Vincent Regan). For the tiny band of followers, every day is a fight for survival, and their mission to spread the word to the world seems impossible.

    Yet, they have hope and soon they have power: the amazing miracle of the Resurrection and the shocking arrival of the Holy Spirit upon them all at Pentecost enables them to inspire more and more people to join. The growing church brings challenges for Peter, John (Babou Alieu Ceesay) and Mary Magdalene (Chipo Chung), who are pushed to the limit; they face trials and imprisonments, persecutions and punishments 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.

    I've really been looking forward to this show. I looked at the listings today & saw that it's only a 1 hour show. Big disappointment. Is it on for multiple weeks? If so, how many?

    I didn't get a chance to see to this. I was just curious as to what others thought about it.

    I thought it was good & plan to watch next week, but by the time it was on this weekend, I was pretty much Bible'd out. The Robe, The Ten Commandments, The Prince of Egypt, and some other Bible timed show that was on a day or two earlier. Plus, at Church they always do a lot more readings at the Easter Vigil. By the time this one was on, I'd pretty much had enough Bible. I hope that isn't blasphemous.

    Anyhow, next week I'll be watching a bit more Bible fresh.

    I enjoyed it. We don't have cable so weren't able to watch the first series. I'm looking forward to watching this one. They took some creative license with some parts of the story, i.e. Pilate and his wife, Caiaphas and his wife, but all fit well and stayed true to the essentials of the story.
