Morgan Freeman has played the president of the United States, a driver, a soldier, Nelson Mandela, a boxing trainer and God — twice. He has been honored with numerous awards, including an Oscar, a Golden Globe an AFI Lifetime Achievement Award.

On a quest to locate the genesis of Creation, actor Morgan Freeman continues his journey to discover if science and religion can co-exist in the latest episode of National Geographic’s popular series, “The Story of God.”

“It’s hard to believe we all came from one man and one woman, but we did,” Freeman says in the beginning of episode four, titled “Creation.”

In the upcoming episode, the Academy Award-winning actor explains that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam all trace their origins to Adam and Eve.

“The Garden of Eden doesn’t only represent the beginning of humanity, it’s the beginning of our conversation with God,” Freeman says.

The National Geographic mini-series follows Freeman as he travels to 20 cities in seven different countries in a quest to find answers to the mysteries of faith.

In episode four, he travels first to Jerusalem where he meets with archaeologist Jodi Magness and tours the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which many Christians believe is the site of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial site, and the Chapel of Adam, which tradition says Jesus was crucified over and is where Adam’s skull was buried

While standing in the Chapel of Adam, Freeman and Magness discuss the belief that both Adam and Jesus were resurrected. According to tradition, when Jesus was crucified above Adam’s burial ground, his blood dripped all the way down to Adam’s grave, leading to Adam’s resurrection.
