Jesus' Family Tree

Season 1
Jesus was the single child of a nuclear family with his parents, Mary and Joseph. At least, that's the traditional image. But Jesus lived 2000 years ago in a society where an extended family was the norm. This fascinating documentary reveals evidence from both the gospels and archaeology showing that Jesus not only had a vast family network, but this network inspired and supported him.
