PETER JENNINGS REPORTING: JESUS AND PAUL � THE WORD AND THE WITNESS,� A THREE-HOUR PRIMETIME ABC NEWS SPECIAL, TELLS THE STORY OF THE FIRST CHRISTIANS AND TWO MEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD, MONDAY, APRIL 5
The Monday before Easter, in a three-hour primetime event, ABC News will try to get at the real story of Jesus and Paul, two men who, against all odds, changed the course of human history. �Peter Jennings Reporting: Jesus and Paul � The Word and the Witness� airs MONDAY, APRIL 5 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
…No other network has demonstrated more commitment to covering issues of spirituality and religion than ABC News. From �Peter Jennings Reporting: The Search for Jesus,� which aired in June 2000, to the November 2003 special, �Jesus, Mary and da Vinci,� to last month�s �Mel Gibson�s Passion,� ABC News consistently focuses attention on the complex, often controversial issues surrounding religious history and personal faith that are at the heart of American culture.
Actually I just wish ABC News would consistently ignore religion. The first two specials they mentioned were unadulterated crap. A parade of liberal scholars offset by some that believe it is just possible that Jesus might have really existed, or as ABC would call them – conservative scholars. Just another photo op for a collar less Fr. Richard P. McBrien and every other theologian who has appeared on A&E or the Discovery Channel in a special with “Truth” in its title. Maybe they can get the script writers from their Judas movie. At least then it would be funny.
