Trivia

Eli Cohen (John The Baptist) said on an Israeli talk show that he was disjointed that the scene where Herod's soldiers came to arrest him was cut out of the final cut. The scene was shown in the New Media Bible instead. See more »

Awesome!
15 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I learned of this movie when I was in college. It was the best discovery of my life. If memory is serving me correctly, it was sent in the mail throughout Alabama for a short time for people to have for free. It is well-made and biblically correct. It gives a message of hope and reaffirms one's belief in Christ. If you do not know Christ, he is definitely worth meeting and learning about. Once you have accepted him your life will change for the better! This is a movie to watch alone, with friends or family. Watch it with your enemies..:) Watch it multiple times and you will learn something new every time! I give this movie a 10!
