Updated: “Jesus, the Lost 40 Days” the History Channel April 20

April 6, 2011

imageAs posted earlier, Jesus: The Lost 40 Days will premiere on April 20 at 9:00 PM ET in the U.S. on History (The History Channel). 

The description of the show has been updated. It now includes references to and information about the Shroud of Turin. The show is scheduled to run for 2 hours (96 minutes without commercials):

JESUS: THE LOST 40 DAYS fills in the gaps in the historical record. According to the Bible, Jesus came back from the dead and walked the earth for 40 days before ascending to heaven. But the New Testament reveals little about this defining miracle of the Christian faith. Using tools of history, technology, science and faith, HISTORY tells the little-known story. Long-buried non-Biblical sources, such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, the Secret Revelation of John and the writings of the Jewish historian Josephus yield astonishing information and detail about these seemingly lost 40 days.

Could Jesus’ words in these ancient manuscripts contain some of his most important teachings, even though they were not included in the New Testament? The producers also build upon the CGI image of the crucified Christ created from the Shroud of Turin in The Real Face of Jesus to visually depict the moments when Jesus appears to his followers in resurrected form. (emphasis mine)

    This program was written by John Marks, a self proclaimed atheist. There is nothing in any of the documents that the program claims to use which shed light on the 40 days in question. John, along with a college friend produced a obscure movie a few years ago called “Purple State of Mind”, in which John claims you cannot see the real world until you put the Bible down, and stop having your world view seen through it’s pages. In the film, John is shown going to a protestant church in NY, first time ever in his life, for he’s more likely to be found on a Sunday morning at the “church” of Vincent’s BBQ. John, claims he’s happy to go to hell, for there will sure be BBQ!
    The film is sure to be a mind bender bolstering agnostics. We shall see.
