In the beginning before there was a written language, the stories in the Bible were told, to people sitting around a campfire in the dark, listening to the tales of what had happened and what was yet to come. Now, Academy Award-winning actor Charlton Heston (Ben-Hur) recaptures all the passion, the power, the drama, and the sheer beauty those first storytellers passed on to us with his own dazzling new exploration of the greatest stories ever told.
Jesus of Nazareth: tells of the amazing life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Here is the story of His humble birth in a Bethlehem manger of the wise men bearing gifts and of Herod's fierce, futile search for the child. You'll hear of Christ's baptism in the River Jordan and of His search for the disciples. Witness Jesus' temptation in the wilderness, the Sermon on the Mount, the healing of the blind, and the overthrow of the moneychangers in the temple.
The Passion: dramatically presents the tragic and triumphant coda to the New Testament: the Passion, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. You'll be present with Jesus and His disciples at the Last Supper in Gethsemane, where Judas betrays Christ with a kiss. Witness the drama of His trial before Pilate and the crowds the struggle of His walk with the cross the moving power of His Crucifixion and the joyful triumph of His Ascension.
Shot on location in the Holy Land, this incredible production is more than great literature come to life. It is a walk through history itself.
