From the Emmy Award-winning "Bible Collection" series comes a production starring Richard Harris as the Apostle John in The Apocalypse. In the late 1st century the Roman Emperor Domitian unleashes a virulent campaign against Christians. Held captive by the Romans on the Island of Patmos, the aged Apostle John receives strange visions; including messages directly from Jesus to the seven persecuted churches on the nearby mainland. Entrusting the written record of his visions to a young Christian woman Irene, he begs her to spread its message among the Christians. These visions form the contents of the Book of Revelation; the mysterious prophecy of Jesus' return and a spiritual message for Christians of all eras.
