At the time of Rome's rule over Judea, Jesus is born in a stable in Bethlehem. As a grown man, he preaches about his father's kingdom, gathers twelve disciples around him, performs miracles and is revered by the people as the long-awaited Messiah.

Fearing for their position of power, the celebrated saviour is a thorn in the side of the Roman rulers and the Jewish priesthood: they have Jesus persecuted, arrested and sentenced to death on the cross. With his subsequent resurrection and ascension, he proves to humanity his identity as the Son of God.
