Episode one in this six part series looks at the political and economic environment in which Jesus Christ was born, the religious tensions which existed in the first century, and the events that led to him being born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth.
Throughout his lifetime, to some Jesus was a teacher. To others he brought healing. To the disciples he was an inspiring leader. And to his adversaries, he was a religious, political and social nuisance who needed to be silenced.
