How did Jesus of Nazareth become the Christ of the Christian tradition? And why did the early Christian communities develop different theological images of Jesus? In her exciting book, Paula Fredriksen answers these questions by placing the various canonical images of Jesus within their historical contexts. FRONTLINE discusses Jesus' ministry, the circumstances of his crucifixion, and social and religious problems facing early churches.

I first purchased this when it was available as a VHS tape and the book. Great! When it became available on DVD, I purchased it agin. It was in "full" which on the modern wide screen is a small picture. Fine on the old televisions which aren't sold anymore. I saw it broadcast again recently and it was broadcast for the modern televisions. The picture was great so I ordered it again for the wider screen. They sent a "full" which I already have. I have to send it back. The catalog doesn't say what it is. I ordered it by telephone so I could ask but the woman taking the order didn't know and that information wasn't available to her. If you want the widescreen....I'd wait until it's available if it ever becomes available. The widescreen is wonderful. I wouldn't order it unless it is the widescreen. The difference is like day and night. It's television so vision is a big part of it. The information is fantastic.

I watched Part I again this December; this is always one of my favorite programs to watch during the Christmas season. Part I was broadcast on my local PBS station in widescreen format, but Part II seems to be available only in "full screen" (pan & scan). I already own the Full Screen DVD, but I'd love to have the program in widescreen. Is widescreen available for both parts? Please help!

From Jesus to Christ

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: From Jesus to Christ: The First Christians DVD:

I saw this video sometime around the holidays and was very impressed, so I ordered the video to bring with me on vacation in Florida.
I am visiting my two sisters who live here permanently and we all watched it together. I thought we would only watch the first 2 hours and finish watching the conclusion the next day, but my sisters insisted in watching the entire show. Absolutely love the historians imput.

No Sermon...Just the Facts.

By Glorybee

from Rogers, Arkansas

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: From Jesus to Christ: The First Christians DVD:

This production is beautifully filmed on location in the Holy Land and the narrative comes from top qualified teachers and historians.
It quotes the Bible's record of Jesus life, his disciples and the growth of Christianity. It covers books of the new testament, the authors and dates written.
The Dead Sea Scrolls discovery, the people who wrote them and why is fascinating. And finally we learn the rest of the story as recorded by Jewish historian Josephus which explains the history behind many of the Jewish holidays.
I would recommend it as a valuable tool for any study group.

Excellent historical analysis

By Ron

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: From Jesus to Christ: The First Christians DVD:

The scholars in the show are honest, very knowledgeable, and frank regarding the rise of Christianity and the diverse factors leading to that rise.
This DVD, more than any other, gives me confidence that I now understand what hitherto was a confusing jumble of stories, myths and legends.
I'm grateful to all involved in this narrative.
