Synopsis – About the Movie

Remaining true to the character of Jesus revealed in the Bible, The Young Messiah is an inspirational story about the childhood of the Savior. When the mystery of Jesus’ divinity begins to unfold in His childhood, He turns to His parents for guidance. But Mary and Joseph, in an effort to protect their child, are afraid to reveal all they know. How do you explain the ways of the world to the Creator of the world? Follow the young Messiah as He and His family take the dangerous journey from Egypt to Nazareth and on to Jerusalem, where His true identity and profound destiny is fulfilled.

What people are saying about The Young Messiah

"..Captivating, inspiring, deeply moving." - Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley, OFM Cap., Boston 

“An enthusiastic endorsement…will strengthen the faith of all who see it.” – Bishop Daniel Jenky, Peoria, IL

 “Seeing what it might have been like for Jesus as a child certainly opened a window where Scriptures are silent. In The Young Messiah, the family dynamics make a compelling story as Jesus begins to grow into his destiny as Savior of the world.” - Sheila Hopkins, National Council of Catholic Women, President
