Max Lucado: Resurrection


Who’s telling the truth? And whom can he trust?

Claudius, a Roman guard, finds himself in the middle of a cover-up regarding the tumultuous events following Christ’s execution. As he investigates further, he discovers that the religious leaders, the Roman government officials and even his closest friends are attempting to hide something important from him. His relentless pursuit of answers to his growing questions threatens his reputation – and even his life. RESURRECTION is the story of one man’s quest for truth and the discovery that leads to his renewal.

This dramatic production brings to life renowned author Max Lucado’s short story.

Dove Review

Resurrection is a quick moving yet cohesive tale of a soldier named Claudius who participated in Christ’s execution and his friend Marcus who struggles to understand why a Roman soldier would care about the happenings in the small and insignificant occupied territory of Judea. As these two friends interact and learn to deal with their current events, they both come under fire from their Roman superiors and the local chief priest.

This is a beautifully told story that will keep the viewer’s attention from start to finish. It shows how any life can be changed by seeking truth and understanding. Dove is pleased to award this well written and acted film our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. We do advise that parents use their own discretion with younger viewers due to a couple of brief flashbacks depicting a bloody Jesus on the cross; so we are recommending it for ages 12 and over.
