Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: Jesus of Nazareth

“Powerful…impassioned” (The New York Times). “An impressive accomplishment…a work steeped…in spiritual passion” (The Wall Street Journal). 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 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 moneychangers in the temple. 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.
