Jesus on the Big Screen

Hosted by

The biblical story of Jesus has been told in films since the beginning of films themselves. It’s latest incarnation is called Son of God. It opens tomorrow, and church groups have already purchased over 500 thousand tickets for opening weekend. We talk with one of its producers, Roma Downey, who also plays Mary in the film. And we take a look back at the many, many depictions of Jesus in the movies over the past 100 years.
