Documentary about the year 66 A.D., the year the Roman Empire was on the verge of a disastrous civil war. The fate of the Empire, hinged on a struggle unfolding more than a thousand miles from Rome, in a remote province known as Palestine. For a hundred years prior to 66 A.D., the Holy Land had been seething with resentment against Roman rule. Leaders across the land, including one known as Jesus of Nazareth, had preached some form of revolution against the iron fist of Caesar. When revolution came, it led to the rise of Christianity and the re-invention of Judaism.
