Who Is This Man?

From complete obscurity, Jesus came to public attention for the blink of an eye. When he died, his tiny failed movement appeared clearly at an end. But Jesus' impact was greater a hundred years after his death than during his life; it was greater still after five hundred years; and after two thousand years he has more followers in more places than ever. Our new series "Who is this man?" examines the impact of Jesus on our world.
