Judith Anderson starred on Broadway in this portrait of Christ's last three years told in modern parlance. Jesus leaves Nazareth and his brothers feel he has let them down at a crucial time. In Capernaeum some people capitalize on his growing popularity. After a disillusioning experience back in Nazareth, the scene shifts to Jerusalem where the fickle crowd turns against Him, and after the Last Supper Mary awaits His return from Gethsemane. Finally, in Nazareth several years after the crucifixion, His family selfishly feels disgraced except Mary who knows His work is being continued.
"One of the most moving expressions of truth and beauty I have ever seen in the theatre." - New York World Telegram
