TBN Presents Biblical Drama “Mary of Nazareth” on Sunday, May 9th
Film chronicles the life of the mother of Christ
By M. Bertello, WDC Media News
May 6, 2010 (LOS ANGELES) -- While the importance of Mary of Nazareth in the Gospels cannot be overstated, rarely is her life given special emphasis in film. “Mary of Nazareth,” airing May 9th at 7:00 p.m. (PST) on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), does just that, dramatizing the story of Christ’s mother from her betrothal to Joseph to her witnessing of the crucifixion of her only beloved son – all while following Scriptures quite closely.
"Mary of Nazareth is the perfect family film and the kind of uplifting programming that TBN is known for," say's Susan Zahn, TBN's publicist and founder of WDC Media.
The film examines the life of Mary in her hometown of Nazareth, showing her dramatic encounter with the Angel Gabriel, who announces that she would give birth to the Son of God, the Savior. The movie also chronicles the heart-wrenching helplessness of a mother witnessing her own son’s betrayal, humiliation, and death on the cross.
Filmed on location in the Middle East with 110 actors and 8,500 extras, the film stars Myrium Muller as Mary and was directed by Jean Delannoy.
Told with great sympathy and objectivity, “Mary of Nazareth” takes an up-close look at one of the greatest women in Scripture – and all history. It’s a must-see for the entire family this Sunday on TBN at 7:00 p.m. (PST).
“Mary of Nazareth” running time is 110 minutes. Please check your local listings or watch online at www.tbn.org.
