Who is this Jesus and why does He have such great impact on everyone He meets?  

He is a heretic to some.  A political threat to others.  Some even proclaim Him the Savior (Messiah).  He is respected and reviled, emulated and accused, beloved, betrayed and ultimately murdered on a cross.  Yet that terrible fate would not be the end of the story.

A Powerful Retelling of the World's Greatest Story

The scale is huge (7,000 extras in the Sermon on the Mount sequence alone).  The music is another milestone in the career of composer Miklos Rozsa.  The mood is reverent.  The performances of a splendid ensemble cast--with a charismatic Jeffrey Hunter at the film's center--are real and involving.  From the Producer of the epic spectaculars El Cid and The Fall of the Roman Empire and the Director of Rebel Without a Cause and 55 Days at Peking comes a powerful retelling of the world's greatest story, the saga of the Nazarene who is the King of Kings.
