Plot Synopsis

In this 12-hour miniseries follow-up to THE BIBLE, A.D. THE BIBLE CONTINUES -- from producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey -- looks at the lives that were instantly altered following the death of Christ. His disciples, mother Mary and key political religious leaders at the time saw their world turned upside down and their lives forever altered. Beginning at that fateful moment of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, A.D. THE BIBLE CONTINUES focuses on the disciples who had to go forward and disseminate 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. Peter and the disciples are hunted by Temple authorities led by High Priest Caiaphas and Roman soldiers under orders from Governor Pontius Pilate. 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 and Mary Magdalene, 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.
On Sunday, June 21, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the season finale of AD: THE BIBLE CONTINUES. In the season ender, "The Abomination," Emperor Caligula's statue arrives and draws everyone to the battleground of the Temple. The disciples stand firm on Jesus message and Cornelius becomes the first Roman convert.
