Max Lucado's renowned short story is brought to life in this dramatic production that follows Claudius, a Roman guard who finds himself in the middle of a cover-up of the tumultuous events following Christ's execution. As he digs for the truth, Claudius discovers that the religious leaders, the Roman government, and even his closest friends are attempting to hide something from him and the world. In the end, his relentless pursuit of the answers to his growing questions threatens his reputation and even his life, but it also leads to his renewal.
Dove approved for ages 12 and over, Resurrection is a gripping tale that not only challenges viewers to put themselves in the shoes of a Roman soldier assigned to Christ's execution, but also reminds them how any life can be changed by seeking truth and understanding.

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.
Violence: Men spar with weapons; a soldier is apparently beaten as a means of extracting a true account of events during questioning; graphic but non-gratuitous flashbacks depicting a bloody and battered Jesus.
Nudity: Shirtless men.
