Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution - Part 1

With their Messiah executed, their dreams crushed, and their cause deemed subversive by the strongest empire the world had ever seen, Jesus's followers faced a bleak future. Their movement seemed destined for extinction. Incredibly, though, Jesus's survivors turned defeat to victory; devastation to jubilation. By one account, it happened on the shores of the Sea of Galilee where Simon Peter and others envisioned the risen Jesus. It was an explosive moment of hope. For the sighting convinced them that Jesus had not, in fact, been beaten, that in his death, Jesus was ushering in God's Kingdom on Earth. Re-infused with hope and determination, Peter became an indomitable figure who would unite his group into a tight community of ardent believers. Dark days were coming, however -- days of [...]

Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution - Part 2

Spread outside Judea by missionaries like Peter and Paul, the Jesus movement caught on quickly among Jews and non-Jews around the Roman Empire. With success, however, came challenges: challenges from hostile locals, challenges from imperial forces, and challenges from conflicting ideas within the movement itself. Should Gentile converts become Jews? Should they be circumcised? These were hot-button issues in the first century and they threatened to tear the young movement apart. Paul-adamant that there was no time for conversions-fell into open and angry confrontation with some of the oldest Jesus followers. Peter, it seems, tried to mediate the conflict. "The Rock" became a stepping stone between the camps and, for a crucial period, helped keep the movement together. But the center [...]

However radical evangelical beliefs are still a potent force in the country today and continue to influence how many Americans see their nation's destiny, with some people holding onto the idea that they are leading the world for, and in the name of, God.

Jesus' Female Disciples, the New Evidence

The traditional story of the birth of Christianity is a male dominated affair-only men were priests and the disciples of Jesus. But now, Bible experts and historians Helen Bond and Joan Taylor lay out a striking alternative version of events that sees women central to the origins of Christianity. But why has this pivotal role played by women disappeared from history? In a journey that takes them to ancient caves in Israel and catacombs in Italy, Helen and Joan call into question centuries of Christian thought. Were female disciples actually crucial to Jesus' mission? Preaching, healing, baptizing, and even financing the movement. If they are right, millions of Christians may have to rethink the origins of their faith.
