It is the Resurrection of Jesus that makes Christianity unique and radically different from every other religion in the world. But, how much do we know really know about the Easter story and the week that led up to it?
Tune in this weekend as FOX News' religion correspondent Lauren Green travels to Rome and Jerusalem to investigate the sites relating to the Passion Story of Jesus. Lauren also interviews New Testament scholars and religious leaders who give her both literal and historical interpretations of the Gospels.
Included in this special are tours of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Garden Tomb — both places that claim to be where Jesus was buried and where he rose from the dead.
Viewers will see relics of the Passion — a thorn, a nail and a piece of the cross — venerated objects brought from Jerusalem to Rome by the Roman Emperor Constantine's mother, St. Helena.
Plus, watch as a forensic pathologist conducts a crime scene investigation of the crucifixion and resurrection using one of the most studied objects in the world — the Shroud of Turin. While many people claim the Shroud to be a forgery produced in the Middle Ages, the most recent investigations show that the cloth that covered Jesus in death dates to the first century.
