New Sermon Series begins easter sunday, april 5 @ 9:30am
A.D. THE BIBLE CONTINUES
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 small hit miniseries “The Bible” left off, continuing the greatest story ever told and exploring the exciting and inspiring events that followed the crucifixion of Jesus, on NBC from April 5th – June 21st @ 8 pm CST.
The immediate aftermath of Jesus’ death had a massive impact on his disciples, his followers, and the 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” focuses upon the disciples who had to go forward and spread the teachings of Jesus 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, the disciples 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 Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice to the awe inspiring wonder of the resurrection and beyond.
Join us Easter Sunday Morning, as we begin with the resurrection of Jesus, and engage in a Twelve Week Sermon Series, going through the Book of Acts. Each sermon will have a focus upon that evening’s TV episode, as together we will journey week by week through Acts & “A.D. The Bible Continues.” Recommend to your friends to join us for this Sermon Series, and invite them to join you in your homes to watch the weekly TV series.
