story of christ films
10 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Most people do not realize is this is a 12 -30 min episode of jesus.It was shown at local churches through out the country.I remember it at my church,it was shown on sunday evening.This was never meant to play at theaters,just at churches and sometimes television.Even though it was filmed on a low budget,it does carry the message of jesus well.
