The docudrama examines the value and authenticity of six objects that could provide clues to physical traces of Jesus. The artifacts are the Shroud of Turin; relics venerated as part of the True Cross; the gospel of Judas; relics believed to be of John the Baptist; the burial box of Jesus' brother James; and the gospel of Mary Magdalene. Hourlong episodes utilize modern scientific techniques and archaeological research to document findings, and Gospel characters and stories connected to the artifacts are given dramatic re-enactments. On-screen commentary by noted theologians helps bring the characters and their emotional journeys to life, while academics from top universities provide historical and theological insight.
