How much do you really know about how Christianity got started? Whether you are a Christian, atheist, or member of another faith, it’s impossible to ignore the impact that Christianity has had on Western civilization. But most people, including many Christians, don’t have a solid grasp of the history of early Christianity – even though it’s hinted at in the New Testament. Many people still think the gospels were written by the people whose names adorn the books. Many people still think those people were eyewitnesses of Jesus. Many people don’t realize how much Paul of Tarsus reinvented early Christianity to suit his own vision, and how much tension he created with the original disciples. Over the last century, New Testament scholars have examined the text word by word to tease apart the true history from accepted tradition. In this light-heated but factual film, we tell the “true” story of early Christianity with the help of twelve biblical scholars, Renaissance masterpieces and humorous animation. It’s neither a film about faith nor a film attacking or making fun of Christianity. It’s an honest attempt to piece together a very complex and fascinating story that everyone will enjoy.
“Did Jesus exist?
Cameron Reilly has created a fantastic historical analysis of how Christianity was formed, grew, and the internal conflicts inside the religion. There are fantastic interviews with many notable religious studies and history professors from around the world.
This is a wonderful scholarly work, and really casts new light on to the development of who wrote the bible, when, and how this evolved over 2,000 years. Discussions of how Judaism and Christianity are fascinating.
Highly recommended. Also there are many funny parts. It is really an engaging movie for anyone who enjoys history, religion, etc. This is not boring, it is a really fun movie and will intrigue you and educate you. Great for any night of the week.” Written by dave-54796 on IMDb.com
“I have struggled to watch documentaries for years now. Most lose my interest because they don’t ask compelling enough questions about the topic they’re exploring. I couldn’t make it through Religulous for this very reason-it was just too easy. I’m one who doesn’t consider Christianity-or religion in general-to be some joke that any adolescent can dismantle with a couple of clichés. But I very much appreciate sophisticated questions, and that’s exactly what this documentary is chock full of. It’s also fun to watch from beginning to end. I laughed out loud several times and had to rewind. One of the best things is that this documentary is CLEAN. I very much appreciated this as I have little kids crawling all over me at all times. I am definitely looking forward to the next Deep Dive production!” Written by Mr_Crimso on IMDb.com
