Badass. Raw. Over-powered

Through archeological research and the latest scientific methods, fascinating new insights into the history of Jesus are discovered. This season is part documentary, part investigation and combines thrilling and emotional drama, while looking at the Gospel characters and stories that these artefacts connect with, from the baptism to the Resurrection and after.

Also in the series is the uncovering of a 2 000-year-old house believed to be the childhood home of Jesus, as well possible remains of the revolutionary John the Baptist, and questions whether the Bible’s most notorious villain, King Herod, deserved his fearsome reputation.
