Film Synopsis:

The immense success of the History Channel’s “The Bible” miniseries has led to the decision on behalf of a major Hollywood production company to create a faith-affirming spinoff, “Son of God”.

“We believe the audience continues to have a hunger for life- and faith-affirming films,” Michael Landon Jr., who will be writing and producing “Jesus of Nazareth” along with fellow screenwriter Brian Bird, who worked for five seasons on the hit show “Touched by an Angel,” told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview.

“The monumental success of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s ‘The Bible’ just underscores that,” Landon added.

The “Jesus of Nazareth” spinoff will reportedly be a six-hour, $20 million miniseries produced by the Motion Picture Corporation of America.

The spinoff’s two writers, Landon and Bird, are both self-professed Christians, and they told The Hollywood Reporter that this new spinoff will be angled toward skeptics of Christianity, rather than believers, in the hopes of educating them on the teachings of the bible.

“['Jesus of Nazareth'] will be traditional in the sense we’re going to stay true to the Gospel, but it won’t be traditional in the sense that our version is actually going to be made for the skeptic, not the believer,” Landon told The Hollywood Reporter.

“The Bible” miniseries has become the talk of Hollywood since it premiered on March 3, as it has received record-breaking ratings, thus revealing that perhaps America’s viewership is craving more faith-inspired programming. (The Hollywood Reporter)

    Hoping to see Diogo Morgado cast as Jesus as he was phenomenal in The Bible series.

    I hope they stay true to the Bible and not tradition. No three wise men saw a baby Jesus in a manger in Bethlehem. The wise men saw a child of two in Nazareth. The wise men were kept and questioned by Herod for two years. Mary offered turtle doves as a sacrifice when she went into the temple. This was the sacrifice of a person who was poor, which means she never received gold from anyone. The Bible says she then went to Nazareth before going to Egypt. Herod would have been looking for the child who escaped. The mother’s and father’s names would have been in the census. Why was there no room in the Inn? It was the feast of Succoth. The manger was a Succot or booth. which was a dwelling the Jews built when they were with Moses. Stop using tradition. Use the Bible for a change.

    I wish they would but that is unlikely. The prayer is that the Holy Spirit will use this to lead people to search the Bibles for themselves to find out the truth about what it really says.
