The documentary on the 'mystery' of Jesus' resurrection is actually a fairly good summary of the argument and it is quite an easy to understand overview. The only part I found slightly problematic was the section on the resurrection of the 'mummy' and the obvious comments made about the magical nature of the tomb. I don't believe this was an accurate representation of the arguments of the time. I think that the documentary went a little too far with the critics of the Resurrection. It was clear that the critics wanted the whole thing to be explained with great detail. I think they went a little too far with the introduction of magic. They felt that it was appropriate and didn't really need any explanation. It was also too simplistic to say that magic is the explanation for the Resurrection. The film did give the viewer the impression that they were to take it for granted that magic was involved and that there were magic experts at the time. I think it is an important film but it is too simplistic in its treatment of the issue. I also think that the documentary should have mentioned the implications of the Resurrection on the current political situation in the Middle East and the potential of the resurrection of Jesus to revive the pagan religious beliefs of the region. I think this was a good film. I think it is a good summary of the arguments and I think it is not a bad documentary. It is worth watching and I recommend it. However, it is not a great documentary.

The highlight of this documentary was the interviews with Russian Orthodox priests, who are often denied their rights by the Orthodox Church. The reason given by the priests was that their religious life had been reduced to teaching other Orthodox in their own parishes. Also, they were denied access to the Bible, or to use the Church's "devil's language" which is used in the private talks of Orthodox priests, while the members of the Church are required to use the Holy Scriptures as a means of communication. The priests also noted that they had been reduced to simply teaching. Although, some of the priests talked openly about their love of God and how they were helped by their faith, and the Love of Christ in their lives, the priests had not been able to freely speak of their faith to the public. The documentary also talked about the lack of dialogue between the Orthodox Church and the West. It was explained that the Orthodox Church is not allowed to be independent of the Russian Church in terms of the priesthood. That means that the Russian Church controls the Orthodox clergy. If the Orthodox clergy speaks openly, the Orthodox Church can not speak publicly, and the Orthodox Church can not speak about its beliefs. In terms of the religious life of the Russian clergy, the priests mentioned that it is very difficult to express their faith publicly. That is because the Russian Orthodox Church forbids clergy to publicly state their faith. The priests also spoke about the new Orthodox parishes that were being built, where the priests are allowed to speak publicly about their faith. However, many of the priests spoke of their desire to leave the Russian Church, as it was becoming too focused on its own identity and on the value of religion. Finally, the priests also spoke about the Orthodox Church's belief that all people should make a public statement about their faith. That is because Orthodox theology teaches that there are many forms of religion, and that all forms of religion should be publicly proclaimed. The priests talked about how the Orthodox Church was developing its own self-definition, and that is why it was becoming more active in the world, and it is becoming more involved in the world. Finally, the priests spoke of the importance of the Orthodox Church's mission, that is, to evangelize the world.
