Jesus: The Lost 40 Days will premiere on April 20 at 9:00 PM ET on History (U.S.) The description says nothing more than, “According to the Bible, Jesus Christ spent 40 days on Earth after his Resurrection on that first Easter”
But, as I mentioned earlier, A&E’s shopping site is reporting that a DVD will be available in June 1, 2011. Here is the link: Jesus: The Lost 40 Days. There you will find this description:
According to the Bible, Jesus Christ spent 40 days on Earth after his Resurrection on that first Easter Sunday before ascending to Heaven. Astonishingly, the New Testament is practically silent on what happened during this period. Why are only a few scattered paragraphs devoted to perhaps the central, most defining and miraculous event in Christianity? And most importantly, what did Jesus do and say during those incredible 40 days?
JESUS: THE LOST 40 DAYS is a new investigation into history’s rare, long-buried non-Biblical sources to seek and fill in this missing time period. The Gospel of Thomas, the Gnostic Gospels, the writings of the Jewish historian Josephus, and the Gospel of Nicodemus are among the alternate, historical sources that yield astonishing information and detail about Jesus’ lost 40 days.
This follows the U.S. History Channel showing of “The Real Face of Jesus?” at 10pm EDT on April 16.
A search by title of the Australian and New Zealand History site returns a page announcing a premier showing of “Jesus: The Lost 40 Days,” at 10:00 pm on April 22. Here is a link.
