Movie Details

This third of four volumes features acclaimed actor and two-time National Rifle Association president Charlton Heston telling the Christian Bible story about the birth of Jesus and his ministry. Heston sees the series as providing a taste of the ancient tradition of oral storytelling, which is the way many of the Bible stories were originally passed down. In addition to footage from the Holy Lands, highlights include a musical score by Academy Award-winning composer Leonard Rosenman and scenes from Jesus' life as portrayed by great painters. Both a priest and a rabbi have officially blessed the video production. The other volumes in the set include: Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: Genesis, Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: The Story of Moses, and Charlton Heston Presents the Bible: The Passion. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
