Summary The Bible: A History is a seven-part series that tells the story of one of the most influential books ever written. Each episode is presented by a prominent commentator and thinker who explores the ideas and influence of seven books of the Scriptures, tracing how they came into existence and how they have shaped the world we live in today.Episode 5: JesusGerry Adams, politician and supporter of the IRA throughout years of sectarian conflict and the subsequent peace process, investigates the life and death of Jesus Christ, against the backdrop of his own life and career.Adams, who describes himself as Irish Catholic, sets out to discover the real, historical Jesus, rather than the version of Jesus he was taught about as a child, and to establish who killed him and why.Adams explores how Jesus' core message - that of love, forgiveness and advocacy of non-violence - has affected him and other members of his community. As someone who has defended the resort to arms by Republicans in Northern Ireland, he reflects on how he reconciles this with the teachings of Jesus.Along the way, Adams consults theologians, archaeologists and historians in Ireland and Israel.
