Based on Henry van Dyke's classic, The Story of the Other Wise Man, this fictional story set in Biblical times is told in gently comic terms. A Magi named Artaban (Martin Sheen) sees a sign in the heavens that he hopes will lead him and his faithful servant to the Messiah. Artaban takes with him three precious gifts to present to the Messiah. For 33 years Artaban pursues Jesus, only to miss Him at every turn.
A film on the life of Jesus so true-to-life you'll feel like you are in first-century Palestine with the Savior. Jesus was filmed on location in Israel in Biblical settings with a cast of more than 5,000 Israelis and Arabs. Virtually every word is taken directly from the Gospel of Luke. Jesus has been translated into hundreds of languages and is used internationally as an evangelistic tool.
Jeffrey Hunter stars in this beautifully filmed life of Christ. Panoramic scenes of battles between Roman legions and Judean rebels contrast with the serene faith of Jesus. Includes scenes of Christ's Sermon on the Mount, His selection of the apostles, His Passion, Crucifixion and Ascension. The life of Christ with simplicity, taste and reverence.
