The Young Messiah

Synopsis:

The epic THE YOUNG MESSIAH, based on the acclaimed best-selling novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt by Anne Rice (INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE and QUEEN OF THE DAMNED) tells the story of Jesus as a 7-year-old boy. Although Mary and Joseph try their best to give Jesus a normal childhood, he inevitably begins to realize he is different and grapples to understand his miraculous gifts.  Conflicted about placing a massive burden on the shoulders of such a young boy, Mary, Joseph and his relatives try in vain to shelter him from the truth about his divine abilities and birth. Yet, as Joseph leads them on a journey from Egypt to Nazareth and Jerusalem, Jesus gradually embraces his calling while he and his family attempt to elude the Centurion sent by King Herod II to kill the Son of God.
