To This End Was I Born portrays the dramatic events of the last hours of the Savior's life, His visit to the spirit world, and His glorious resurrection. Review: "I have watched this dvd many times and each time I am affected by the extreme cruelty Jesus Christ suffered on His last days. The film is beautifully choreographed with the Israeli country side and Jerusalem street scenes, contrasting the hypocrisy of the Pharisees and Sadducees with the innocence and glory of the Savior. It begins with a guard waking up Pilate for this trouble maker the Jews have brought to the Roman court. The film then flashes back to the birth of Jesus then to the Garden of Gethsemanee where the film shows in dark shapes and shadow, through music and sound the agony He suffered as He took upon himself the sins of the world. Then the treachery of Judas, and the mocking, spitting, slapping interview of Jesus Christ by the Jewish council. Soon the flash back catches up with the real time of the movie. The film suggests the unbelievable cruelty with suggestions as a rope is pulled taut and a man groans. The flogger with whips studded with nails pulls back and lets the whips fly on the back of the Savior. We do not see it but hear the crack across the skin and the startle of stabled horses. I have cried out unable to sit quietly. The crucifixion is more hideous with heavy nails and hammer thrown down, a hand forced on the cross as a soldier raises the hammer and pounds the nail into the hand. The mournful music intensifies the darkest hour. Then the film shows the resurrection and with scenes of beauty, we see the Savior resurrected, the Lamb of God. This is an excellent movie for all to ponder and learn more of this time."
Filmul portretizeaza evenimentele dramatice ale ultimelor ore ale vietii Mantuitorului, vizita lui in lumea de jos, si glorioasa Lui inviere. (http://www.christianmovies.eu/)
