Plot Synopsis

Utilizing some of the world's most respected Biblical scholars, historians, faith leaders and theologians, JESUS: HIS LIFE is a four-night, eight-hour series that explores the story of Jesus Christ through a unique lens: the people in his life who were closest to him. Each of the eight chapters is told from the perspective of different biblical figures, all of whom played a pivotal role in Jesus' life including Joseph, John the Baptist, Mary Mother of Jesus, Caiaphas, Judas Iscariot, Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene and Peter. Each figure takes a turn guiding viewers through the story of the most famous man in history -- through his birth, death and resurrection -- all conveyed through a combination of scripted drama and interviews with prominent religious and historical experts. The series weaves together the canonical Gospels, historical sources and cultural context to create a complete portrait of Jesus -- the man and the Messiah -- while also revealing his journey through a complex world of kings, politicians, reformers and soldiers in a turbulent power struggle during a time of revolutionary change. Two chapters of JESUS: HIS LIFE premiere weekly from 8-10pm ET/PT on consecutive Mondays, beginning March 25 and ending just before Easter.

But her faith is rewarded the most when she is the first to witness the seemingly unbelievable: His resurrection.
