Must-See TV: Finding Jesus

I’ve always been fascinated by the history surrounding Jesus, and ever since I first learned about the Shroud of Turin while in high school, I wanted to know more about it. When I was given the opportunity to preview the first episode of Carmel Communications’ production, Finding Jesus, I was thrilled that this episode was all about the Shroud.

This show is a CNN original series, and I expected a much more “newsy,” skeptical, and even irreverent approach. This show did not belittle the Faith in any way. On the contrary, the narration and interviews were quite reverent and respectful. The program delves into history, culture, science and faith without disparaging any of these traditions or giving in to sensationalism.

Check out a preview of the first episode:

One warning, and I do not take this lightly: the violence in this show is disturbing. Actors portray the beating, torture and crucifixion of Jesus as narrators explain the scientific effects of these on the human body. It was beyond difficult to watch this. I caution parents to be very careful about allowing children to see this production.

Finding Jesus premieres Sunday, March 1, at 9 PM Eastern on CNN. Learn more about the show at CNN’s Finding Jesus page.
