Luke's Gospel, more than any other, fits the category of ancient biography. Luke acts as a 'narrator' of events rather than the conventional author, painting a picture of Jesus as a very human character, full of compassion for all the suffering world. Luke sees Jesus as the 'Savior' of all people irrespective of their beliefs, always on the side of the needy and the deprived against the rich and the powerful. He constantly challenges those in power for their self-righteousness. This film about the life of Jesus takes the actual Gospel text as it's script, word-for-word, unedited. Five years in the making, this epic production has been critically acclaimed by leading religious scholars as a unique and highly authentic telling of the Jesus story.
