The Bible: The Apocalypse"It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the beginning and the end." (Revelation 21:6)
One of TV history's most ambitious projects reaches its culmination in "The Apocalypse," the final installment of "The Bible." A collection of 21 TV movies produced over nine years with top Hollywood and international stars and creative talent. An outstanding success confirmed by exceptional ratings all over the world and many international awards, including twelve Emmys and Emmy nominations.
The project now comes full circle with Richard Harris, the star of the first installment, "Abraham", now as the apostle John in "The Apocalypse." Asia Minor, 90 A.D. Roman Emperor Domitian has unleashed a virulent campaign against the Christians. Held captive by the Romans on the island of Patmos, the aged apostle John struggles to save Christianity from extinction by sending letters to the Christian communities of Asia Minor.
Driven by the wish to meet the last living witness of the Lord's passion, the young Christian Irene succeeds in gaining access to John's prison. Entrusting the written record of his visions to her, he begs Irene to spread its message among the Christians. These visions form the contents of the Book of Revelation. To some, they evoke the end of the world; to others, they allude to the spiritual struggles facing Christians of all eras.
