About this movie

Jesus Christ, The Son of God, sets out to prepare Himself for His earthly mission to save humanity by dying on the cross to atone for the sins of the world. Christ is led into the Judean desert by the HOLY SPIRIT to strengthen His spirit with fasting, prayer and time with His heavenly Father. After 40 days, weak from hunger, Christ is met by Satan who attempts to tempt Him to sin and abandon His painful mission to bring salvation to the world. Satan follows Christ closely creating turbulence in His path in an effort to cause fear, doubt, and terror. Jesus is also haunted by thoughts of what the future holds and nightmares of the inevitable agony He will endure on the cross. Taking advantage of the emotional bond Christ has with His earthly parents, Satan assumes their likeness in an effort to tempt Him into sin.

This movie is an incredible depiction of Christ's 40 days in the desert, spent without food, shelter or companionship--while being tempted to sin by Satan and to abandon His mission. Would definitely recommend this flick to anyone, as there are some incredible plot twists including Mary and Joseph, who do not appear in the biblical text of this story, but whom the production team found ways to use for added effect of how deceiving Satan was during this trial. And though the writers took liberties with taking a part of the bible which we know little about, with Christ alone in the desert, and making a beautiful and full length feature film out of it, they still stay completely true to biblical text by making sure that Christ speaks no fabricated words anywhere in the film--but that He only uses dialogue throughout the entire film that can be found in scripture and quotes it exactly as written. Beautifully filmed, well produced, incredibly well acted and completely thought provoking. I can only imagine how this production team would have done if they had a big studio film budget instead of this being a passion project funded by their own wallets. Its overwhelming what they were able to do with the little amount they had to work with.
