KCPT presents an evening of programs exploring the Bible on Wednesday, April 13, 2011.
Secrets of the Dead: Battle for the Bible at 7pm: The gripping stories of faith, flames and martyrdom that led to the Bible’s translation into English.
NOVA: The Bible’s Buried Secrets at 8pm: This two-hour special breaks exciting new ground in investigating the origins of the ancient Israelites, the evolution of their belief in one God and the creation of the Bible.
Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer at 10pm: Focuses on the ancient and obscure Christian prayer first recited by the Apostles more than 2,000 years ago in the Egyptian desert. Originally passed down verbally from one generation to the next, monks eventually transcribed the sacred words into instruction manuals originally intended only for those dedicated to a life of isolation.
