Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
Part of a three-tape set, this video attempts to put Jesus in the context of a particular time and place. Detailed maps provide a framework for understanding the travels of this man, in a time of great political and social change. The video offers commentary on the early life of Jesus, from the flight of his parents to escape persecution, to the instance of the young man teaching within the walls of Jerusalem's temple. A faith-based program, this tape attempts merely to offer a context for Jesus and his message, not an in-depth historical investigation of his life.
