Publicity Release


It Began in Jerusalem


A two-part documentary series that traces the beginnings of Christianity, REVELATION, premieres on Maori Television this Sunday March 12 at 4.30 PM.

Acquired from Southern Star International for broadcast on Maori Television, the documentary series starts in the sixth century, 1000 years before the birth of Christ, when the Jews of Palestine were forced into slavery.

From the mystery that surrounds the secretive burial and discovery in 1940 of the Dead Sea Scrolls to the formation of the Roman Empire, REVELATION examines the reign of terror that saw many Palestinian women commit suicide in mass protest.

The documentary attempts to prise apart the beginnings of Christianity from its Judaic past to its church of all nations present.

The documentary series also uses the architectural wonders of Jerusalem above and below the current foundations of this sacred city in order to document how Islam and Christianity sprang from the divine revelations of Adam, Noah, Abraham and Moses.

Eye-opening and wondrous, REVELATION premieres on Maori Television on Sunday March 12 at 4.30 PM.
