Son of God

Description

A Jewish holy man recruits disciples and preaches compassion and charity until he runs afoul of both the Roman civil government and local religious leaders. Sold out by one of his own disciples, Jesus of Nazareth pays the ultimate price for his anti-establishment views—but his remaining disciples and followers insist that his death is not the end of the story.
