Fern Britton’s Holy Land Journey
from BBC iPlayer:
Fern Britton travels to Jerusalem on a life-changing journey of faith in search of the real story of Jesus’s final days, from his triumphal arrival to his brutal crucifixion. It is an emotional trip which culminates with Fern’s decision to mark her pilgrimage in a way she will remember forever.
Ever since Sunday school, Fern has known of the events that took place in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. Now, as an adult and a committed Christian, she wants to truly grasp their significance – how Jesus entered Jerusalem at the height of his mission, only to be betrayed, abandoned by his closest followers and condemned to suffer the cruellest of deaths on the cross.
Fern wants to understand the humanity of Jesus to get a sense of what he went through during those final days. How did Jesus’s crucifixion come about? What he was feeling? And what did it all mean? To find out, she meets local experts and experiences the sights and sounds of the places where Jesus once walked.
