Thought provoking movie.

on 12/24/2012

This Italian production, first released in the U.S. in the late 80's is a great family film, first-off. Also, though it does not draw from biblical accounts so much as Gnostic Gospels, it still manages to show Jesus' humanity as well as give us glimpses of his destiny with visions the boy has at key moments. The movie is dubbed well and that does not detract from its beauty. Read More

A Child Called Jesus

on 5/23/2013

The characters were non American/familiar and seemed more realistic. I loved the character child Jesus played by Matteo Bellina which gave a glimpse into what Christ's childhood may have been like, & the film also showed another side of what his parents went through while raising Jesus. I saw it years ago on TV & have always wanted it. Read More

Product Overview

Have you ever wondered what Jesus did as a young boy? The story of Christ's childhood has never before been told on television. Filmed on location in Tunisia, the Italian TV production A Child Called Jesus mixes Scripture with speculation. It attempts to fill in the "missing years" of Jesus, from ages 3 through 12. The events narrated in the film all took place in the same year and tell the dramatic story of a family forced to leave their home in Bethlehem to escape the persecution of Herod the Great. When King Herod, fearing that the Messiah has indeed been born, orders that all Hebrew male children under the age of three be slain, Joseph moves his family near Egypt.
