WATERLOO (KWWL) - NBC television series "A.D. The Bible Continues" is set to premiere Easter Sunday night. The twelve-week series follows the events after the crucifixion of Jesus, picking up where the miniseries, "The Bible," ended.

People filled the pews at Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Waterloo on Good Friday, celebrating the Easter Holiday.

Deacon Ed Weber says the message of faith isn't just for a weekend, and says he supports the series.

"Something refreshing like this for the next twelve weeks will be good, for all of us."

He says translating the message into the daily lives of church members is important, and believes the series can help transcend it past church walls.

"I think people need the message in the home more than any place else, because that's where most of us get our spiritual training is through the home."

Some members of the church say they're looking forward to the series, and plan to watch the premiere Sunday night.

Others, though, worry it could be over-produced.

"Go look in the Bible, is that the way it really was? If it's not, sometimes these things get embellished a bit," Cyrilla Haugen said.

Others say the show could help those not incredibly involved in the church to learn more about the crucifixion.

Deacon Weber says once the series concludes, he plans to discuss it in church services. Viewers and church members can study episodes with a scripture reference guide at ShareADtheSeries.com.

"A.D. The Bible Continues" premieres Easter Sunday at 8 p.m. on KWWL.
