Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This program, narrated by Jonathan Frakes, is part one of a two-part series that takes the viewer on a journey through time as recounted in the stories of the Bible. This episode turns to the stories of the New Testament, in which the prophecies of the Old Testament come to pass. A great one, in the form of John the Baptist, does indeed begin his labors to presage the coming of Jesus Christ. And then the Word of God is made flesh in the incarnation of Jesus in a human body. The program follows His trials and triumphs with depictions in art, reenactments, and scholarly commentary. The Dead Sea Scrolls are examined for their role in confirming the Biblical tales of Jesus Christ.
