No work of God happens in a vacuum, and the death of Christ is no exception. Israel under Roman rule was a hotbed of political and social conflict, a pot threatening to boil over. This was the stage for Jesus and his radical teachings that offered a better way of life and threatened those in power, and it was these political forces that God used to bring about Jesus’ sacrifice.
Based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, Killing Jesus portrays the historical and political setting of our Savior’s death. Starring Haaz Sleiman, Kelsey Grammar, Eoin Macken, John Rhys-Davies, and Emmanuelle Chriqui, Killing Jesus premieres on the National Geographic Channel tonight at 8/7C!
