This documentary is a non-evangelical interpretation of the ancient history behind the story of Jesus and his 12 apostles. Martin Sheen narrates and several biblical scholars, university professors, and religious leaders give their insights and comments on Jesus as a leader and his relationship with his followers. Some attempt is made in the video to separate myth from fact in the stories about this important part of history that have come down through the centuries. A look at life under Roman rule and the circumstances surrounding the era when Jesus performed most of his work make up the body of the video, while dramatic reenactments of significant events add to the understanding of the lives of the apostles both before and after Jesus' death.
