The PBS documentary special Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution was put together by the same production team responsible for the network's 2001 series The Roman Empire in the First Century. As indicated, the emphasis is on two of Jesus Christ's most impassioned disciples: Peter, the fervent true believer, and Paul, the convert and organizer. In the 30 years after the Crucifixion, the blunt and proselytizing Peter and the urbane and sophisticated Paul endeavored, separately and together, to make Christianity relevant to the average citizen of the Roman Empire -- and to dispel the widely held belief that, in the words of a contemporary theologian, "A crucified Messiah was a failed Messiah." Narrated by actress Salome Jens, Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution was filmed as a two-part presentation, but debuted instead as a single, 150-minute telecast.
