The events that took place in the Middle East between 40 BC and 96 AD changed the world forever; so much so that the world's most predominant ruling body, the Roman Empire, changed the world's calendar to give ancient history an end date and modern history a new beginning.
Archaeology in the Middle East has uncovered over 25,000 artefacts – items which verify Biblical accounts of events in history to be accurate.
From the discovery of an inscription in the excavated wall of Caesarea, which verified Pontius Pilate as being the Governor of Judea in the year 26 AD, to the discovery of the crucifixion nails in the Ossuary (burial box) of Caiaphas, the Jewish High Priest, archaeology hasn’t failed to stun scientists and historians alike as to the accuracy of the book we now call the Bible.
Secular writers also recorded many of the events that took place along with the lives of prominent people. These writers included Josephus, (who was a contemporary of the Apostle Paul), and Pliny, a respected Roman journalist who was killed during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
The books of Josephus, Pliny, Eusebius, along with scores of other writers and historians have been compared and crossed referenced to ensure that the historical facts contained in Pax Regnum are accurate and complete.
Pax Regnum’s writer has used Biblical accounts, historical evidence, and secular records intermixed with reasonable deduction to create Pax Regnum’s compelling storylines and characters.
Several years of prayer and research have resulted in the assembly of Pax Regnum as a continual series of inter-linked, compelling stories. The development ethos has been to stay with verifiable evidence and to apply reasonable, logical deduction only where needed to complete the flow of factual information.
The narrative encapsulates the unique global events that surrounded the life of Christ and portrays the impact of his ministry across the Roman Empire.
With a compilation of compelling content taken from historical events over 140 years, this historical drama series contains portrayals pf people and events known throughout history. Characters brought to life in the Roman Empire include Marc Antony, Cleopatra, Augustus Caesar, Herod the Great, Pontius Pilate, Caligula, Tiberius and Nero to name just a few. They participated in great battles, lived through famines, earthquakes, sieges, and even the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
Background: A new perspective
Unlike any previous film or TV series based around the fascinating history of Rome, Pax Regnum charts the intense and volatile relationship between Rome and Jerusalem during the reign of the Herodian dynasty. A period in which the Roman Empire’s foundations were so significantly shaken that it led to a fight for radical reform.
Each episode draws on the true stories of Rome’s emperors and generals along with their interaction with the region’s prominent kings, rulers, and lesser known heroic leaders. They bring to life some of history’s most dramatic events and factual accounts of people known to us. But also how the relationship between Rome and the Jews during this critical period of history shaped the world we live in today.
Each season creates a comprehensive backstory of the Roman Empire’s growth, its moral decline, and the challenges it faced.
Pax Regnum also recreates the events surrounding the great fire of Rome and the final act of defiance against the Jews in the looting of treasures taken from Jerusalem’s Temple to finance the building of the Colosseum. And, of course, Rome’s symbolic lifestyle, portrayed by the city of Pompeii until its destruction in 79 AD, the same year, is another subject of fascination for contemporary audiences.
A matter of time
In 525 AD, the world’s most predominant ruling body, the Roman Empire, changed the world’s calendar to give ancient history an end date and modern history a new beginning.
No longer would the world be taught that modern history started when the Roman Republic was formed in 743 BC. Instead, modern history would start at the time of the birth of Yeshua be Josef, Jesus Christ, a year originally thought to be what we know as 1 AD.
The Roman year 754 AUC (Anno Urbis Conditae) was therefore changed to 1 AD (Anno Domini) and Rome’s founding year was relegated to be 753 BC (Before Christ).
Because this change was not made unto 525 AD, which was over 500 years after the birth of Christ, the calculation was erroneous. We now know that Christ was most likely born between 8 and 4 BC.
Nevertheless, in the eyes of the most powerful rulers on the earth at that time, this one momentous event warranted the timeline of earth’s history to be changed. Now, Rome recognized that this one single event would have the potential to change the lives of all mankind.
