Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Son of God.

This feature film was created by the same team, and stars the same cast as the made-for-TV, The Bible: The Epic Mini Series. The crucifixion of Jesus Christ was also portrayed in Mel Gibbon’s movie The Passion of the Christ. Both of these productions contain graphic depictions of violence. Jesus’ birth is gently depicted in The Nativity Story.
