This film by the Visual Bible (which also produced "Acts") takes the text of Matthew word for word and brings it to life in this fabulous production starring Bruce Marchiano as Jesus. Marchiano's depiction of the compassion, grace and exuberant joy of the Messiah has been noted as one of the finest film representations made. The movie was filmed on location in Tunisia, Morocco and South Africa and great attention is taken to historical accuracy in the costuming and setting of the time. This is a wonderfully entertaining and moving adaptation of the life of Christ and is perfect for the entire family.
This film was made for television and is not rated.
