The Jerusalem Temple in the heart of the city.

The Jerusalem Temple in the heart of the city.

In the decades after Jesus' death, Peter, Paul and others would reach out to peoples and cultures far from their own. They would face skeptics and enemies. But they would also draw converts. Step by step, year by year, they would bring their young Jewish splinter group to one of the most fateful crossroads in history.
