Apocalypse! (#1805)

This two-hour FRONTLINE traces the origins of the Book of Revelation and how it has shaped Western ideas of the apocalypse. The apocalypse evokes images of doom and destruction, judgment and fear, death and hell. Yet it also speaks of trial, deliverance and hope -- at least for those who prevail. From the production team of "From Jesus to Christ," this film examines the changing ideas of the apocalypse across the span of 2,500 years to understand how these ideas evolved and how they are expressed in modern times.
