The concept was a Jesus film that is Word-for-Word the Gospel. Director, Regardt van den Bergh, cast Bruce Marchiano as Jesus and together the two men made a film that brings Jesus “to life” in a depth of love that is widely acclaimed as unmatched by any other. And lives across the world give testimony: “I prayed for my husband for years but his heart was hard… Then one night Matthew came on…”
With countless such testimonies, it goes without saying that Matthew is Bruce’s most important work.
“All these years later I still wake in the night overwhelmed by wonder.”
