Plot Summary | Plot Synopsis


Did You Know?


During the crucifixion scene, when Jesus is receiving the nails in his wrists, the camera close-up shows a nail being driven into Jesus' bare right wrist, but when the camera zooms out to a clearly-agonized Christ, the nail is suddenly surrounded by what appears to be rope.

When the soldiers appear to be hoisting Jesus' body into the air to be fastened against the upright stake, Jesus' right wrist is again bare and rope-free. How does the rope appear, then disappear like this between shots?

As well, when the nail is initially being driven in, the surface appears flat, but when the camera zooms out in the same aforementioned shot, the crossbeam appears to be bent and flexible, before straightening out again in time for the raising of the crossbeam. See more »


Jesus: I am not alone; I am with my Father.
Satan: You will die in vain, Jesus...
Jesus: No! I'm in the hearts of men. I will die for the everlasting kindness of the human heart created by the Father, so that man will make His image shine once again. And those who want to will find in me the strength to love until the end.

Cast Performance Highlights The Second Part
14 December 2020 | by Desertman84See all my reviews

"Jesus Part II" is the second part of TV movie that tells the story of Jesus.

It tells a story of a poor carpenter whose teachings changed the world and he's still followed by hundreds of millions of people around the world, two thousand years after his death and resurrection,at present.

The second part consist of the part from Jesus raising Lazarus from death until the passion,trial, and crucifixion of Jesus.

If the highlights of the first part is the public ministry of Jesus,the second part's highlight was the performances of cast particularly Gary Oldman as Pontius Pilate .With their performance,it made the re-creation of what Jesus went though on the cross provided a special impact to the viewer.
