Early Christianity faced powerful obstacles. The might of the Roman Empire and the power-politics of ancient Jerusalem laid a heavy burden on those who believed Jesus was "the Messiah." But this new faith would not die. In a brief span of time, the fledgling religion would transcend its origins in the provinces of Rome and absorb the capital of the empire itself. With the words of Paul and other ancient writers, interviews with contemporary scholars and dramatic reenactments, Peter and Paul and the Christian Revolution explores how two men weathered crippling disagreements and political persecution to lead one of history's most astonishing religious movements.

Written and directed by Margaret Koval, this 110-minute documentary tells the story of Peter and Paul, who led one of history's most astonishing religious movements.
Interviews with contemporary scholars and dramatic reenactments explore their activities in the fisrt century of the Roman Empire.
The story culminates in the Great Fire of Rome in the year AD 64.
It caused widespread devastation, before being brought under control after six days.
According to Tacitus and later Christians, Nero blamed the devastation on the Christian community in the city, initiating the empire's first persecution against the Christians.
It is an informative and fascinating documentary.

Did not like this one, have viewed many that were better. The people that made the comments are they even Christian's, they continually doubted the word of God?
