This program tells the story of Mary, the one person who was with Jesus from birth to death. This feature-length docu-drama about the mother to the Son of God was filmed in the Middle East with a cast of 110 actors and 8,500 extras.
In Nazareth, young Mary is a simple girl loved and cherished by all. One day, in a blinding light, an angel announces to Mary that she will give birth to a son who will be called the Son of God. Following this extraordinary announcement, she does bear a son who grows strong in wisdom and in spirit, and is soon ready to fulfill His destiny. With His baptism in the Jordan river, Jesus now begins His ministry. Many people, even Mary, had the wrong idea about Jesus, believing He would restore their nation to its former glory. In their disappointment, people turned against Him and He was betrayed, humiliated, tortured and crucified. Mary witnessed all of this, unable to reach out and help, even as He met death with tender words of forgiveness for His murderers.
