Project details

Loved and worshipped by billions, his life and death is the subject of intense debate. But Jesus of Nazareth, the most famous man in history, has left no physical trace. Or did he?

In this series, utilizing the latest state-of-the-art scientific techniques and archaeological research, we investigate the value and authenticity of six objects which could shed new light on Jesus – the Shroud of Turin, relics venerated as part of the True Cross, the Gospel of Judas, relics believed to be of John the Baptist, and the Gospel of Mary.

Part documentary investigation, the series is also part thrilling and emotional drama, as we look with fresh eyes at the Gospel characters and stories that these artifacts connect with – the baptism, the betrayal, the Passion, the Resurrection and after.

A first-class panel of on-screen contributors will provide expert commentary – academics from the world’s best universities provide historical and theological insight, while the likes of Father James Martin, SJ and the Reverend Paul Raushenbush help bring the characters and their emotional journeys to life for our audience.


'Finding Jesus. Faith. Fact. Forgery' opens to 1.14 million viewers, proving that religious fare works for all sorts of networks. The Hollywood Reporter
