The Jesus Code

The Pilate Stone
Season 2 Episode 1 The History Channel December 3, 2017

This epic series returns with six brand-new episodes, deciphering the life of Jesus of Nazareth through extraordinary artefacts and places associated with his birth, life and death. Utilising the latest state-of-the-art scientific techniques and archaeological research, these artefacts and locations are examined and discussed by representatives of the world's leading universities, including Harvard, Oxford and Brown, while the likes of Father James Martin SJ, Erwin McManus and Bishop Minerva Carcano help bring our characters and their emotional journeys to life from a faith perspective.

A 2000-year-old house is found under modern Nazareth; could this be the childhood home of Jesus? And what of the tomb of King Herod? The monumental fortress of Herodium was unearthed in 2007, but does it really belong to him? Further episodes explore the lives of St Peter, Jesus' lead disciple and the man believed by millions to have been the first pope, and Pontius Pilate, a Roman governor.

Part two of this extraordinary drama documentary special presents a new insight into the iconic Easter events. A leading theologian and an investigative archaeologist have linked Jesus to the most powerful and ambitious politician in the Roman Empire. New evidence shows that over six months, Jesus built influence in Jerusalem using the protection that Rome gave him. When his Roman ally fell from power, he was left exposed on the firing line. With arresting documentary sequences from Israel to Italy and stunning drama, the explosive Roman power politics that ultimately nailed Jesus to the cross will be uncovered.
