Storyline

A young man, Facing torture and possibly death for his Christian beliefs, confesses his fears to Peter, who awaits a similar fate. Peter tells him of fear he felt in following Jesus' arrest in the Garden of Gethesamene, when he denied knowing him three times - and yet Jesus told him that he would be the rock upon which the Church was built. Peter goes on to relate the events of the passion week, including the Christ's crucifixion, resurrection and ascension. Written by David Bassler

Not that bad for 1958.
6 February 2006 | by chasmilt777See all my reviews

"The Power of the Resurrection" is a 60 minute movie. It is not a great version of Jesus's resurrection. But there was some things that I did like about this movie. I can't believe that the first 10 people to vote on IMDb gave it an average of 2.7. I reckon after seeing Mel Gibson's version, one would find this production by Family Films rather weak. The DVD jacket says it's a 1962 release and IMDb says 1958, regardless, that's a generation ago. There was no earthquake at the cross and the Pentecost scene was lacking, but I did like seeing Peter throwing away his sword and the sealing of the tomb. The message that Jesus loves us so much that he died for our sins, is always great news no matter which version you watch.
