The long-anticipated DVD set, Messiah: Behold the Lamb of God, is now available for purchase. For the first time ever, teachings of the restoration, sound academic views from faithful Latter-day Saint scholars, and state-of-the-art documentary production have been combined in this seven-part series on Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
The documentary is produced by the Neal A. Maxwell Institute, BYU Broadcasting, and Religious Education and is marketed by Deseret Book. The two-DVD set features all seven episodes hosted by S. Kent Brown (executive producer of the documentary and professor emeritus of ancient scripture), Gaye Strathearn (associate professor of ancient scripture), John Tanner (professor of English and BYU's Academic Vice President), and Andrew Skinner (professor of ancient scripture). This documentary is the result of over 200 hours of interviews with LDS experts in various fields. Filming was done on-site in Israel, Egypt, and Denmark, and on a specially built stage at the LDS motion picture studio. Special features of the DVD include a "making of" featurette, extra scholar commentary, translations into Spanish and Portuguese, and Through His Eyes: Exploring the Landscape of Christ, which includes new footage of many areas filmed while making the documentary.
Episodes may be viewed on the Internet at messiah.byu.edu, using the "watch episodes" link to BYU Television. Messiah: Behold the Lamb of God is available for purchase at the BYU Bookstore (click here) and at Deseret Book.
