It actually took several hundred years for the life and teachings of Jesus to develop into a religion about Jesus.
And it’s the tumultuous period when Christianity was in its infancy that is the focus of the excellent documentary After Jesus — The First Christians, which airs tomorrow as part of the CNN Presents series (CNN, 7 p.m.).
For the life of me, I can’t figure out when “tomorrow” is in relationship to the writing of this article. I’m guessing Wednesday? Anyway, reviews seem to treat it favorably, which probably means it’s a horrible piece of filth.
