Bible Mysteries

Thanks to Melisso Quero from the BBC for this notice. The final two episodes in the Bible Mysteries series will be broadcast on the following dates (here with blurb and, for Revelation, a link to its web page):

Revelation: The End of the World
Sunday 25 April on BBC Two, 12:00-12:50
Many believe the terrifying visions of Armageddon, the Beast and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse hold the key to the end of the world. This programme investigates new evidence revealing that the Book was written as a warning against the worship of Rome's most powerful Emperors and that the infamous number of the beast was not 666, but 616 - secret code for the Emperor Caligula.
Peter the Rock
Sunday 25 April on BBC Two, 12:50-13:40
He was the cowardly disciple who denied knowing Jesus, yet found the strength to establish the church and the courage to die for it. The evidence shows that in fact St Peter was the John Major of his time. His bland, middle of the road management style was precisely what was needed to unite a divided movement under threat.
In the Revelation episode, look out for my colleage Professor David Parker, who will be explaining about the number 616.
