MUMBAI: Bringing the dead back to life, walking on water and calming storms with a single word! UK pubcaster the BBC has announced that Jesus' acts will be recreated in a new series, The Miracles of Jesus presented by Rageh Omaar. The show kicks off on BBC One 30 July 2006.

Whether or not people today believe in miracles, 2,000 years ago, friend and foe alike believed that Jesus could work miracles. This series reveals that the miracles were seen as subversive signs giving vital clues to Jesus' identity.

Many of the miracles would have prompted Jesus' followers to hail Him as the great prophet foretold by the scriptures. But, surprisingly, many other miracles would have encouraged some Jews to hail Jesus as a leader in the mould of Moses and Joshua.

In this three-part series, Rageh Omaar embarks on a journey to find out what the miracles reveal about Jesus and who people at the time believed Jesus really was. Omaar travels around the Sea of Galilee to visit places linked with the miracles of Jesus.

In the first episode the raising of the widow's son, the feeding of the 5,000, walking on water and turning water into wine are recreated to bring the miracles to life. Omaar explores the similarities between Jesus' miracles and similar feats performed by the prophet Elijah; Moses, the hero of the Exodus, and Joshua the general who led the Jews to the Promised Land. The series draws on evidence from the Dead Sea Scrolls, the oldest Jewish writings in existence, to get inside the minds of Jesus' contemporaries.

In many of His miracles, Jesus seemed to be making the dangerous claim that He possessed divine authority. His actions would have astonished first-century Jews.
