+  A New 8-Part Production Called "Messiah"

  • Description: Messiah is an exploration of the messianic prophecies of the Bible and how they were fulfilled by Jesus – both during his earthly life, and after it. Filmed at nearly 30 locations in the United States, the Holy Land, and Rome, Messiah’s eight episodes feature live-action narration supplemented with expert commentary, dramatic voice acting, hundreds of classic artworks, and nearly two dozen songs, orchestral performances and hymns. The locations, artworks, and ensemble cast illuminate the large span of history covered by Messiah — nearly two thousand years, from the Exodus, to the Passion, to the Fall of Rome.
