Ancient Roads from Christ to Constantine
A compelling 6-hour seriesJoin author and distinguished history professor Jonathan Phillips of Royal Holloway, University of London, as he takes viewers on a spectacular and dramatic twelve thousand mile journey of a lifetime, traveling the ancient roads to the very places where Christianity began. Ancient Roads from Christ to Constantine is a captivating adventure through four centuries and seven countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe.
Birth of a Faith
Hour one begins its journey in Bethlehem and travels throughout the Holy Land. With the Gospels as our guide, we join our host Jonathan Phillips as he traces the incredible journey of Jesus from his birth, ministry, passion, and resurrection.
The Great Missionary
In hour two we meet the man whose transformation is one of the most compelling in history, the Apostle Paul. We journey with Jonathan Phillips as he re-traces Paul’s bold quest to bring the Christian message to Asia and Europe, a quest which would see him imprisoned, beaten, and on the brink of death.
Age of the Apostles
We travel with Jonathan Phillips on Paul’s third and final missionary journey as the Apostolic Age comes to an end. We witness how the remaining apostles, except for John, are martyred for their unwavering beliefs. In Rome, Paul and the Apostle Peter, will both meet their fate in the hands of one of the cruelest tyrants in history.
From Apocalypse to Heresies
In hour four, the city of Jerusalem will be rocked by war. Then we travel to Patmos Island where John was exiled and visit the cave where John wrote the most enigmatic book of the New Testament, Revelation. We witness the crucial battle where powerful heretics claiming special knowledge of Jesus threatened to distort, divide and even to destroy the Christian faith.
Pagans and the Cult of Martyrs
We will travel to North Africa and tell the story of Perpetua, a young Christian martyr, whose extraordinary story still resonates today. We will go to places where Christians faced unimaginable violence because of their beliefs, where the Roman Empire threatened everything that Christians stood for with their pagan temples, emperor cult, and vicious tortures.
In our last hour, we see how Rome exerted its fullest effort to eradicate Christianity. But both emperors and empires had fallen exhausted, while the faith grew stronger. It would be the conversion of one man that would fully transform the fortunes of the Christian Faith. He is known as Constantine the Great. This is his incredible story.
