The life story of Jesus Christ (Diogo Morgado), as he travels and assembles his disciples and performs miracles wherever he goes. Although he becomes beloved by thousands of followers and is greeted warmly where he goes, he also faces detractors, who criticize him for healing on the Sabbath and twist his words to make it seem that he is working against the temple.
They worry that he has too much power with the people and force the Romans to find and arrest him. One of his disciples, Judas, betrays him and leads them straight to Jesus. When asked if he is the Son of God, Jesus admits it and is charged with blasphemy. Judas later regrets what he's done, but it's too late for him to turn things around.
One reviewer asked "who would give up his own son for the salvation of many".
This reminded me of a short film I once saw and the core of the film was about exactly that:
A man took his 5 yr old son to work with him at a bridge rail crossing. His son, while playing, fell underneath the mechanical rail shaft. The train was approaching. His Dad had to make a decision; save his son and let the train full of passengers plunge to a sure death, or save many people by crushing his own son. After watching this clip, the question “what decision would I make?” troubled me. Every decision we make in life has consequences. The only sure thing we have in this world is the Love of Our Lord and how
Great movie all around. The dialogue matched the biblical accounts of the gospels and the acting was really good as well. I highly recommend this movie to everyone.
