"We come now to the tragic and triumphant coda of the New Testament," host Charlton Heston says in The Passion, the fourth and final segment of the acclaimed Bible series rooted in faith and in the well-honed storytelling skills of Ben-Hur Academy Award ® winner Heston. The Passover and Last Supper, the betrayal by Judas and Peter's thrice-confirmed denial, the clamorous trial and the agonized hours of the cross, the empty tomb and the victory over death - Heston revisits the stirring tale in locations that include the Hall of the Last Supper, the Garden of Gethsemane and the Via Dolorosa. As The New York Times' John J. O'Connor wrote in his review of the series: "Heston scores powerfully with [his] readings. It works beautifully." Run Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes.

Review 1 for Charlton Heston Presents: The Passion
The presentation is shot in Jerusalem and at an ancient Roman amphitheater located north of Jerusalem. This is not a dramatic presentation of the events, but rather a dramatic reading of the King James text, supplemented with shots of artwork and religious sites that tell the story of the Passion of Jesus. Heston departs from the telling of the biblical story at times to comment on the sites being used as a backdrop to the story. The biblical text has been edited in order to fit the time limits of a one-hour television presentation. Overall, very well done.
