A.D. The Bible Continues is an epic Biblical drama that aired on NBC in 2015. Set in Jerusalem a few months after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the show follows the lives of the disciples, the political leaders of the time, and their families as they navigate the tumultuous and dangerous times following the crucifixion.

One of the main characters of the show is Peter, played by Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado, who also played Jesus in the 2013 miniseries The Bible. Peter is a key figure in the early days of the church, and A.D. The Bible Continues shows his struggle to come to terms with his new role as a leader and shepherd of the people. Peter is portrayed as a deeply flawed but ultimately courageous man, who overcomes his own insecurities and doubts to become a pillar of strength for the fledgling Christian community.

Another central character is Caiaphas, the high priest of Jerusalem, played by British actor Richard Coyle. Caiaphas is a complex and conflicted character, torn between his loyalty to the Jewish people and his fear of the Roman authorities. He is one of the main antagonists of the show, and his interactions with the disciples and the other characters provide much of the dramatic tension.

Roma Downey, who also co-produced the series along with her husband Mark Burnett, plays Mary, the mother of Jesus. Mary is a comforting presence throughout the series, providing support and guidance to the other characters as they struggle to come to terms with the new reality of their lives.

The show also features a number of strong female characters, including Joanna, the wife of Herod's steward, played by Leila Mimmack; Claudia, the wife of Pontius Pilate, played by Louise Delamere; and Salome, the daughter of Herodias, played by Melia Kreiling. These women are all depicted as intelligent, capable, and courageous, and their presence adds depth and nuance to the show's portrayal of the time period.

The historical accuracy of A.D. The Bible Continues has been praised by many critics. The show includes a number of well-researched details, such as the political tensions between the Jewish and Roman authorities, the struggles of the early Christian church, and the customs and traditions of the time period. The set design and costumes are also impeccably done, helping to transport viewers back to the time of Jesus and his disciples.

Overall, A.D. The Bible Continues is a compelling and well-executed drama that brings the story of the early Christian church to life in a vivid and engaging way. The performances are strong across the board, and the show's attention to historical detail and accuracy make it a must-watch for anyone interested in Biblical history or the early days of Christianity.

A.D. The Bible Continues is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on April 5, 2015.
