The 1965 film "The Greatest Story Ever Told" ranks among the most popular "Jesus movies" ever made. However, the film inevitably leads viewers to ask, "Is that in the Bible, or did they make that up, or what?" The Greatest Story Ever Told: A Silver Screen Gospel attempts to answer this question. Provided is a scene-by-scene summary of and commentary on the movie. The analysis is anchored by reviewing scenes of the movie alongside analogous events in the New Testament. The detailed commentaries also explore the relationship of the scenes to other ancient literary sources such as the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, non-canonical gospels, apocryphal literature, ancient Jewish and Roman authors such as Josephus and Tacitus, and more.

For all film collections.--Catholic Biblical Quarterly
