Product Description

Product Description

The events of Jesus’ life and the lives of his Apostles occurred over a few short decades, yet, like stones splashing into still waters, they generated ripples that have driven the course of history for two thousand years. The First Days of Christianity brings two top-selling programs from THE HISTORY CHANNEL and A&E together on DVD for the first time, creating an enthralling five and a half hour exploration of this crucial turning point in Western culture.

4.0 out of 5 stars IN THE BEGINNING Nov. 14 2007
By Marlowe - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A nicely done 400 minute summary of the history of the Christian religion. Does a decent job of explaining how Jesus and his 12 Apostles spread Christianity throughout the known world.Done in the typical "Biography" style. Believers and non-believers alike will find this film edifying and interesting. Does an especially good job of explaining the East-West split in Christendom and the Papal/King alliances of the first 1400 (approx)years of Christianity. The only negative I would say about this effort is it's not quite as scholarly as I would have liked but that is purely my take. All in all it hits all the main features of the development of Christendom. Believers will be glad they watched.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing. Aug. 15 2008
By J. Lane - Published on Amazon.com
"The First Days of Christianity" is, on the whole, not worth the money. The only possible exception would be free copies.

The first part covers the "Holy Family". It uses the Gnostic Gospels as a reliable source despite the nearly universal rejection of them by modern reputable scholership. As a result, the first portion of this poorly executed attempt at an entertaining biography is largely innaccurate and biased. The reenactments of loosely related miracle accounts are worthy of a high school play at best. If you do choose to buy this, don't even bother with the first section.

The second part is a head and shoulders improvement over the first, but it still falls far short of a well done documentary. It clearly favors an atheist (or at the very least agnostic) viewpoint in reporting the history of the very early church. As the timeline becomes more removed from Jesus and the history becomes less controversial, the documentary improves considerably.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss March 18 2013
By Rhett D. Sorensen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Some of the episodes are informative and done up to a minimal standard of production. Some of the episodes are virtually unwatchable on account of horrible dramatizations and being totally devoid of useful information.
The apostle Paul was probably the best episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprised Aug. 18 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I am very suprised by the negativity & dislike for this documentery because i loved it. Yes some of it is not what I had been taught but i did like it & it touched on things I didn't know, like Paul. I have watched this over & over & I would recommend. It is nicely boxed & very well done, and I paid a lot more for it..
