From Jesus to Christ. the first Christians( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part two of the series From Jesus to Christ explores the period after the crucifixion of Jesus by tracing the beginnings of the "Jesus Movement," as Christianity was first called in its early years. Drawing upon historical evidence and archeological finds as well as engaging interviews, we learn that the early Christians branched out spreading their message to non-Jews, while the Apostle Paul, in approximately 50 CE, traveled away from the traditional centers of the Jesus Movement to found new churches in Greco-Roman cities. In fact, Paul's letters to these fledgling congregations mark the first writings of the New Testament. Meanwhile, spiraling tensions between Jews and Rome would culminate in a catastrophic Jewish revolt against Rome, propelling the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple - the center of Jewish spiritual life. This film presents a rare and compelling glimpse at early Christianity
