| THE POWER OF THE RESURRECTION (Harold D. Schuster, 1958) **1/2
This takes yet another viewpoint – with the events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion being recounted to a Christian novice by Simon Peter (Richard Kiley) at the time of his own execution. An interesting idea here is that the Jewish High Priests – who also hate the Romans – decide to give Christ over to their enemies (with the aid of the equally misguided Judas) not because he has put himself up as God but, rather, due to the fact that they're disappointed by his preaching Peace And Love as opposed to brandishing a sword in order to vanquish the oppressors from their land! Here, of course, we also get to see a good deal of Christ himself – interacting with Simon Peter, Judas and the rest of the Apostles, and also a bit of the trial before Pilate when Peter denies knowledge of him in the palace courtyard. Before reverting to Peter's own fate, we're also treated to the re-affirmation of faith by the famously doubting Thomas as well as the remaining Apostles' new-found courage to go out into the streets and preach The Gospel after Pentecost.
