Synopsis by Mark Deming

While Jesus Christ was inarguably the cornerstone figure in the development of Christianity, his disciple Paul served a vitally important function in setting the course for the nascent faith, especially after the passing of Jesus. ABC News Presents Peter Jennings: The Search for Paul is a made-for-TV documentary which examines Paul's role in the history of Christianity -- his close connection with Jesus and his followers, his role in establishing Christianity as a decisively separate faith from Judaism, and how his relative strengths and weaknesses are viewed by religious historians today.
