This dramatization of Bible stories centers on the relationship between Jesus and the Apostle Peter, as well as the individual decisions, struggles, and triumphs of Peter and the other apostles as a result of their choice to follow Jesus. The narrative opens on the night before the arrest of Jesus, who is seen here as a servant in actions such as washing the feet of his disciples and joining together in the ceremony of the last supper. Directed by Steven J. Boettcher, the actors here—Bruce Marchiano as Jesus, and Emilio Doorgasingh as Peter—bring a winning dynamic to the portrayal of the two men, sometimes interacting as student and teacher, other times as brothers. Especially poignant is Peter's regret over denying Jesus when the soldiers come for the latter, and his struggles after the Resurrection when Jesus wants to see Peter but Peter can't bear the thought of facing him. Of course, reconciliation eventually comes full circle for the pair. Forgiveness and inclusion are two of the strongest messages of Christianity, and both are clearly present in this beautifully-filmed production. Highly recommended.
