From the makers of the award winning biblical dramas Road to Emmaus and Come Follow Me comes My Son, My Savior, a powerful portrayal of the life of Jesus as seen through the eyes of one who knew him best, Mother Mary. My Son, My Savior imagines Mary’s childhood, growing up in a strict Jewish household, celebrating the annual feasts such as Passover and hearing the prophecies about a coming Messiah who would redeem Israel. Little did she know the vital role she would play in the fulfillment of those prophecies. Using the Gospel accounts as its framework, we see how Mary responded to the events of Jesus' life and how her understanding of Jesus’ mission grew over time.
Offering an overview of the life of Jesus as seen through the eyes of his mother, Mary, filmmaker Steve Boettcher's My Son, My Savior begins with a teenage Mary asking her father to explain the meaning of Passover and its link to the prophecy of a coming Messiah. Not long after, Mary is visited by the angel who tells her that she will bring Jesus into the world. In snapshot fashion, subsequent dramatic scenes cover the major chapters in Jesus' life: birth and subsequent flight from Herod, teachings as a boy and early miracles as a young man, and denouncement by authorities, followed by the Crucifixion and Resurrection from the grave. Throughout, Mary's efforts to understand her son's destiny give this familiar story a fresh angle, while the handsome production values add texture and a sense of historical accuracy. Recommended.
