This drama on the life of Jesus is solidly structured and well performed. Further, it’s truly produced for the ear, with sound effects—a scraping sword, the clink of coins being counted, and, even more impressive, crowd scenes over a large distance. As for the cast, one or two of their accents are a bit out of place, but overall they serve the purpose of making it possible to immediately tell Luke and Mary from other male and female voices. Finally, the story is paced well for dramatic effect (except that it starts off slowly). There are only two distractions. Framing the story of Jesus as a narrative of "news" from the Middle East comes off as gimmicky, and the background music is overdone.
