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.

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.
The apostle Paul was probably the best episode.
Read the reviews people before you buy. That was my forgotten
mistake on this purchase. Nothing against the seller they were great..
