The trailer covers the major points in the New Testament story, including Jesus' betrayal and crucifixion.

The first look at the movie also provides glimpses of Jesus' ability to work miracles, like making a man walk and helping a fisherman who believed there was nothing in the water return home with a net full of fish.

Jesus is also shown forgiving a man of his sins and spreading the word of God as he becomes increasingly popular.
