Product Description:

A splendid, deeply moving screen biography of Christ. Especially memorable is the portion of the film depicting the "Sermon on the Mount."

Plot Synopsis:

Nicholas Ray's lavish and beautifully constructed widescreen epic about the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
"King of Kings" is built upon a series of narrative parallels and contrasts between Jesus and Barrabas. The film portrays the thief as a rebel leader of the Jewish resistance; unlike Jesus, who preaches a message of peace, Barrabas advocates violence as a means to an end. By building his drama around this religious and philosophical conflict, Ray establishes a tension that defamiliarizes this well-known story.
Highlights include the Sermon on the Mount and the scene in which Salome asks King Herod for the head of John the Baptist.
