Dailies | Jesus Is Back on the Big Screen in ‘Son of God’ Trailer (Video)

The film from the producers of cable TV's “The Bible” hits theaters on Feb. 28, five days before Ash Wednesday

After raking in huge ratings for the History Channel earlier this year, Jesus will be taking his miracles to the big screen in “Son of God,” which is basically a condensed version of the 10-hour miniseries “The Bible,” with a few extra scenes not included in the telecast.

The first trailer for the film shows Jesus of Nazareth (Diogo Morgado) performing a variety of miracles, including his biggest hits like healing the sick and walking on water, as well as helping his disciple Peter catch a whole bunch of fish. Then he gets sold out by Judas, and the rest is history.

The movie version of the miniseries Mark Burnett and Roma Downey produced tracks Jesus’ life from birth to death, to resurrection — all to a rich orchestral score from Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer.

Greg Hicks, Adrian Schiller, Darwin Shaw, Sebastian Knapp, Joe Wredden, Simon Kunz, Paul Marc Davis, Matthew Gravelle, Amber Rose Revah and Roma Downey co-star in the biblical epic directed by Christopher Spencer.

    Blasphemy, the ability to forgive sins (Luke 5:21, Who can forgive sins, but God alone) and being a man and claiming to be God (John 10:33, being a man, makest thyself God). Sounds like the Catholic Church to me.

    • John F. Flores

      You are allowed to believe what you wish, only God can open your eyes, and that only come by humility. It is as simple as to believe that he is the perfect son of God or not. Jesus words were “Choose you this day whom you will serve”.

      • Mark M Webster

        Actually, those words were from Joshua, but since they share a name…Joshua 24:15

    • Marsh

      The Roman Catholic Church is only part of Christendom. Arnold you have missed the point. Hopefully, before it's too late your spiritual eyes will be opened and you will see Him for what He Is. He is the Eternal I AM.
      Now go and learn what that means.

      • Victor

        The father, the Son, the Holy Spirit are one. He speaks with the authority as they are one in the same. He came down from heaven, not born of two humans but of the holy spirit. Crucified on the cross for our sins, and resurrected from the dead to bring us life eternal. More then a man my friend Arnold. He is our savior, our Lord.

          John 14:6

          New International Version (NIV)

          6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

          • jancuk

            Which mean???He is a GOD him self

          • Nacho Zaragoza

            Like the ‘father’ he has a multiple personality disorder. In that passage he is speaking of ‘the father’ as a second person.

          • Mark M Webster

            Perhaps they are separate persons and He truly is the Son and the Father is as He is called.

          • KAF

            I'm sorry Nacho…but I disagree. God is the God of ORDER. Just look at the world we live in and how everything happens every day like the rising and setting of the sun, the moon, the seasons. Everything in “perfect” order and perfect “peace.” If you are confused, maybe you should get in a Bible study that will explain the whole concept of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
            Peace to you.

        • Skywalker

          And one day not soon enough, every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of All.

          • Nacho Zaragoza

            Is it the end times again? Good I have a pile of laundry I want to skip doing it.

      • Nacho Zaragoza

        Of all the christian sects the catholic one is the most distant from the bible teachings.

        • mitch

          for sick mind like you, nacho. try to find the meaning of catholic, you seem lost. MAY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD COME TO YOU AND CAST THE DEMON IN YOU!

    • willythegeek

      Even you have the ability to forgive sins—-to you. What's your problem?
      Matt 6:14

      • KAF

        (Matthew 6:9) Jesus said to pray in this manner..
        Our Father in heave,
        Hallowed be Your name.
        Your kingdom come.
        Your will be done
        On earth as it is in heaven.
        Give us this day our daily bread.
        And forgive us our trespasses
        As we forgive those who trespass against us.
        And do not lead us into temptation,
        But deliver us from all evil.
        For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

        (Matthew 6:14,15)
        “For if you forgive men their trespasses , your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

        We are to forgive each other (without holding a grudge) because God will not forgive us, if we don't. But, our sins against God can only be forgiven by our Father in heaven through His Son, Jesus Christ. (John 14:6) Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Me.”

    • KAF

      Don't forget the part where Jesus, healed the blind, drove out demon spirits, made people walk again, healed the physically sick, and raised the dead. Oh but only God can do that. Read John 1:1-5 and you will read who Jesus is. (a little hint–the Word) Peace be with you.

  • Neil

    Jesus is not he son of God but only the messenger sent by God just as was Moses sent by God to emancipate Jews from pharaoh.

    • willythegeek

      Whoa dude, read the sermon on the mount, that's Matt 5,6,7 if my memory serves correct. Matt 5:17 specifically.

    • jancuk

      Then u r not real Christian…Jesus is GOD not messenger or whatsoever…just GOD

      • Ngendahimana Elisa

        Jesus was 100 percent God and 100 percent human

    • ben3

      That what the muslims say about Him but it is a lie.

    • Nacho Zaragoza

      The so-called christ is a fictional character just like the rest of the story.

    • Stan Ables

      Isaiah 9:6 Says Jesus is God

      • KAF

        Jesus Himself said “I and my Father are one” (John 8:58) and also in (John 11:14) “Verily, verily I say unto you, before Abraham was “I AM.”

  • Neil

    Son of God is a theoretical context not a literal one. If Christians could understand that they will be Jews

    • skywalker

      This is the problem with the Internet. You can get answers to a lot of things, but it can NOT be trusted with the most vital, most important information there is. Only God's Word contains His promises to mankind, and the way of salvation. For spiritual matters, the Holy Bible is the only trustworthy source. Don't take my word for it, and definitely don't take the word of anyone on the internet who claims to be an authority on spiritual matters. Read it yourself. I triple dog dare you. Start in John. If you're really daring, begin in Matthew.

      • Sherryl Hatmaker

        Skywalker you are so right. Amen!

        • Manila

          Yes, Only God words are trustworthy. But Bible is not God words. They are the Gospels according to John etc. And they were written after several years of Jesus.

    • ben3

      Wrong. Many place in the Bible where it tells of Jesus being with God in the Beginning. God said we should make man in our image is the first.

  • true

    what bible did you read Jesus is not a white man -does hair of wool and skin of sand = a white man the answer is NO!

    • jancuk

      100% u r a racist ppl…who trying to be smart…but you aren't..

  • ben3

    No Jesus wasn't white and probably had several blacks in His ancestry.Why does that make any difference who they put on screen.

    • Nacho Zaragoza

      He is made up to look like western European to appeal to the white majority.

  • Nacho Zaragoza

    The miracle is how a Middle Eastern Jewish became white and speaks with a British accent.

  • Chris

    I don't even believe in god or jesus but this movie looks pretty awesome.

    • Stefan

      God gave us a free will but he also provided both places for believers and non-believers.

  • YE

    Jesus was a Negro, Check it out!

  • Gerald Brienza

    Does television really need more fiction?

  • Bob

    White black yellow who cares. “In the Christian view. . . the ultimate evidence for the existence of God is Jesus Christ himself. If there is a God, we characters in his play have to hope that he put some information about himself in the play. But Christians believe he did more than give us information. He wrote himself into the play as the main character in history, when Jesus was born in a manger and rose from the dead. He is the one with whom we have to do.” — Timothy Keller in The Reason for God

    • Sir Vent

      “who cares”, apparently Whites, cares. At least 90% of pictures regarding Lord Christ Jesus are displayed as a White Aryan Caucasian.This is not a accident. This is done with intent. Why go thru the extreme meticulous effort of making the movie set, costume, props authentic to the period of time, but fail to tell and show the truth of the known likely image of the Jewish Rabbi. Jesus. The whole truth will set you completely free. If the purpose of the movie is to teach the message of God, Why taint it with deception . God in………Peace out!!!!

  • Michael Faye

    This is nothing new. It has been done and re done many times. It is usually a handsome surfer dude. This one reminds me very much of Jeffery Hunter who starred in The King of Kings, another Jesus epic. This could be a pleasant change in all the crap that is out now but the old British actor element is really out dated.

  • Usama

    Shame on the slaves of wealth hurting believers and earning money. This film hurts millions of Christians and Muslims. Showing dirty people acting like prophets in the film will affect the spirituality of the Religious people.

  • Michelle

    I never knew the British accent had its origins in Israel. The things you learn from the media nowadays…

  • Brother Kevin

    Jesus was neither Jew Or Gentile but he was from God!

  • Brother Kevin

    I Am A Christian! But Paul said I am A Jew inwardly!

  • Brother Kevin

    Jesus said when u see me you see the Father!
