This film tells the story of Jesus Christ, son of Mary and Joseph and Son of God. When the film picks up, Jesus (Adam Greaves-Neal) is seven years old and deeply loved by Mary (Sarah Lazzaro) and Joseph (Vincent Walsh), despite their struggle to accept that Jesus is God's child.

The film follows the family's return to Nazareth from Egypt, chronicling Jesus' understanding of His own divine nature and purpose, and showcases the family's conflict with the Romans, led by Severus (Sean Bean), who are desperately searching for Him.

Based on Anne Rice's novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt.

  • 5 stars "no Adam Graves-Neal is Amazing!!! As well, as the other cast members!! A Fabulous Movie. They chose the actors perfectly for this film. British accents be damned- considering the movie characters are middle eastern!! I've yet to return this movie back to Netflix, I have watched it over 30 times. It still gives me goosebumps in certain scenes!! My favorite has got to be when Jesus tells the Devil.."Don't touch me, never lay your hands on me." It's seems as though Adam has portrayed Jesus here, as he will be when he grows up....without realizing who he really is, yet. The young boy shows glimpses of the man he has yet to become. Netflix won't be getting their movie back. :)"
