AFTER JESUS: the first Christians encores on CNN at Easter

As two billion Christians worldwide celebrate Easter, CNN examines archeological evidence and insights from renowned authorities on the ancient church to explore how a faith challenged by the martyrdom of its earliest followers and apostles, could also survive controversy and vigorous debate over its orthodoxy, to become the world’s largest religion.  Narrated by Liam Neeson, After Jesus explores the sometimes surprising early history of Christianity, and the challenges and struggles of the early church.

The two-hour documentary After Jesus: The First Christians encores Sunday, March 31 at 8:00pm & 11:00pm.  All times Eastern.
