In this version of events, Jesus is not shown being whipped. He carries only the crossbeam of his cross to the place of execution. He is nailed through the wrists rather than the palms. His feet are nailed with one foot placed atop the other. The two thieves are nailed in a similar fashion, unlike some depictions in which they are merely tied to their crosses, thus differentiating their crucifixion from that of Jesus. See more »
This was undoubtedly the cheesiest movie of the life of Christ I have ever seen. Even Jeffrey Hunter's I was A Teenage Jesus; aka King of kings was better. I caught the tail end of this monstrosity while channel surfing. The budget must have been $10,000; the acting, except for Steel, was non-existent, and the screenplay could have been better written by a sixth-grader. I saw an interview with Steel, Paul Crouch and the director and his wife, who wrote the screenplay talking about the authentic beards, as if this was the major task to overcome in making this lousy movie. But what really bothered me the most were the Scriptures that were not included in the screenplay that would have made the movie better, and given it more clarity.
