Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: The Passion

“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. 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 and 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. SPECIAL FEATURE: Charlton Heston: Behind the Scenes
