'The crucifixion was only the beginning'

Taking the end of the Gospels as its starting point, this follow-up to the 2013 Mini-series 'The Bible' shows the impact Jesus' death had upon the world around him.

Following the impact that the life and death of Jesus had in the days of the Roman empire, A.D. Kingdom and Empire depicts the events of the book of Acts as the two worlds of God's Kingdom and the Roman Empire clash.

Experience the witnesses, Romans, disciples, and new followers who are make up the story of Christianity's first days.

The series also features Argentine actor Juan Pablo Di Pace (Mamma Mia, Fuller House) as Jesus, starting off the events that will echo through the whole series.

Behind the camera, the series has also assembled a collection of directors whose work showcases the very best of Television productions in recent years.
