When Sleiman, joined by co-stars Stephanie Leonidas (Salome) and Emmanuelle Chriqui (Herodia), visited Yahoo TV, however, we decided to lighten the mood with a game of “Bible or B.S.” How it works: We read them statements, and they have to tell us whether they’re accurate according to scripture or something we made up (and yes, we were sneaky: There is a Tamar in the Bible, but, to our knowledge, the other Braxton sisters are not represented).

Watch the video above to see how they did.

Killing Jesus premieres Sunday, March 29 at 8 p.m. on the National Geographic Channel.
