Trivia

Jesus' crucifixion shows him nailed through the palms of his hands (no ropes have been added to help the actor stay in place). His feet have been nailed separately rather than one placed atop the other. The two thieves aren't nailed but are tied to their crosses. This emphasizes the special or unique nature of Jesus' crucifixion. See more »

very moving
28 December 2019 | by cartjosSee all my reviews

The first time I saw this was about 17 years ago, then a year later it was on again. Since then nothing. Growing up in the 60's it was fun to pick out many actors that I had seen on other shows, some from Superman. The thing I remember most though is that the two times I have seen this the ending brought tears to my eyes.
