Revolutionary

"Revolutionary" is a 10-part series that seeks to explore Jesus in a different way through two unique perspectives. The first is set in Israel, following Oleg Kostyuk as he uncovers who Jesus really was by bringing his 1st century world to life. The second is set in New York, following Sergio Gonzalez as he explores how this 1st century man could still possibly be relevant to us in the 21st century. These two journeys intertwine to form one story – filled with ancient discoveries and modern connections – creating a new and dynamic picture of Jesus that speaks directly to us today.
