This dramatic installment of The Bible franchise recreates the Biblical story of the crucifixion, the resurrection, and the turmoil experienced by Jesus' disciples before they went off to spread the gospels. But if the production seems familiar to viewers, it's likely due to the fact that it was created using archived footage that was shot during the making of AD: The Bible Continues. Nonetheless, it still manages to offer a clear, well-paced narrative throughout its roughly 90-minute run.

Resurrection is clearly Christian-based, and stays true to much of what is described in the New Testament. As a result, those whose belief systems are anchored in Christian tradition will appreciate, if not celebrate, its messages about Christ's followers around the world and their words of faith and hope. However, this movie assumes that the viewer is familiar with the story and the people featured in it. Those who don't already know much about it may have a hard time following along, and others just won't be interested in watching.
