The Miracle Maker

The film chronicles the later life of Jesus as his spiritual guidance and miracles begin to inspire the people around him. As the people flock to his leadership, those in authority begin to fear him and his growing political power. In the end, the tale draws to its inevitable confrontation between the power of Rome and the power of God.
