Jesus' miracles as described in the Bible are to be recreated in an upcoming three-part BBC series, presented by reporter Rageh Omaar.

In the show, beginning on 30 July, the former BBC correspondent, 38, will travel around the Sea of Galilee and visit places linked with the events.

The series will draw on evidence from the Dead Sea Scrolls to see how these deeds were interpreted at the time.

Omaar ended his war correspondent role in 2003 to work on freelance projects.
