Peter and Paul — Anthony Hopkins stars in this epic network television mini-series that brings to life the precarious existence of early Christianity.

Included are the stoning of Stephen, the road to Damascus, their encounter in Jerusalem, their conflicts over how the word of Christ should be spread.
