CNN to capitalise on renewed interest in Christ with documentary

MUMBAI: Right now Christ is in the news thanks to the debate over Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ. The film's dialogues are in Latin and Arabic.

CNN has announced a documentary The Mystery of Jesus. This will try to unravel many of the questions and myths surround Christ. The show airs on 13 March at 9 pm with a repeat on 14 March at 8 pm, 10 April at 9 pm and on 11 April at 8 pm.

Was Jesus a preacher, a healer? A teacher? What did he do during his adolescence? What may he have looked like? And, what were the reasons for his death? This special offers factual evidence and current theories about the life of this renowned religious figure. Narrated by actor, Liam Neeson Schindlers List the documentary explores the historical aspects of the life of Jesus and delves into why so many mysteries exist about his life.

Through interviews with numerous scholars, scientists and doctors the show will offer explanations into the earthly aspects of Jesus. Religious scholars including Dr. A.J. Levine from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee and Dr. Claire Pfann from University of the Holy Land in Jerusalem, discuss the personal details of Jesus life, which are supported both by history and religious texts. They shed light on the early years of Jesus and provide insight into matters such as the existence of Jesus brothers and sisters.

Another scholar, Dr. Bruce Chilton, even claims that the actual birthplace of Jesus may be in another area, not Bethlehem of Judea. And, Astronomer Michael Molnar discusses his unique findings regarding the birth date of Jesus, which he calculated using technology and old astrological maps.

The show will air under the programme block CNN Presents. Unveiled in April 2001, the series provides engaging, single-topic stories from network correspondents and producers worldwide.
