On April 30, after an exclusive, private screening that NBC has provided to this writer for Episode Five of “A.D. The Bible Continues,” the power of the story and excellent acting continues in the “A.D.” series. The momentum of evil grows in this episode but the power through the disciples, especially through Peter is overcoming the evil and darkness to bring the true Light and Love of Christ. The arc in the story is building with an increasing contrast between good and evil with good prevailing. All of the acting is strong, multi-faceted, and authentic.
