"First Days of Christianity" Viewing

The most famous events of Christ’s life occurred at the very beginning – the virgin birth celebrated at Christmas – and at the very end – His ministry, death and resurrection. But what of His childhood? His family? What do the Gospels and other ancient texts tell us of the star that foretold His coming? Who were the Three Magi and what do we know of the journeys of the Holy Family as they eluded Herod? And what do we know of the twelve men chosen by Jesus to be His closest companions and destined to bring Christ’s message to the world? Or of Paul the Apostle whose life-long mission ensured the survival of the early Church.

 

For compelling insights on these and other mysteries of Jesus’s early life, join us Mondays at 1 p.m. or Wednesdays at 7 p.m. as we view The First Days of Christianity – a combination of two programs first seen on The History Channel: “In the Footsteps of the Holy Family,” narrated by Roger Moore and “The Apostles,” narrated by Martin Sheen.
