Pier Paolo Pasolini's masterpiece comes to life in color for the first time in this beautifully told film about the life of Jesus Christ according to St. Matthew. The story begins with his birth and illustrates how his teachings attracted not only his disciples, but crowds of believers. When the Parisees, chief priests and elders learn of Jesus, they conspire to have him arrested, beaten, tried and crucified on the cross. This classic film is a beautiful interpretation of the greatest story ever told.
