Professor Obery Hendricks of the New York Theological Seminary investigates the original revolutionary meaning of Jesus's teaching, and how the church has tried to downplay its real significance. Professor Ben Witherington investigates Jesus's decision to confront the authorities in Jerusalem, and how he revealed his true identity in secret to his disciples several months before he went to the city. Dr Helen Bond and Dr Andrew Skinner investigate the last week of Jesus's life, and the real meaning of the trials he underwent before the Jewish and Roman authorities. And Professor Tom Wright, former Bishop of Durham and now a research professor at St Andrew's University, investigates the historical truth of the resurrection and its part in Christianity's beginnings as a new religion.
