About The Film

Son of God was produced by Emmy award winning producer Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor, Shark Tank) and actress Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel). The film is distributed by Fox.

The movie is 2 hours 20 minutes in length.

Son of God is not a documentary, it is a scripted, acted drama filmed on location in the Middle East and Morocco. It is also important to remember that this is a dramatization of the Bible and certain creative liberties were taken.

To help ensure the accuracy of the miniseries many Christian scholars served as advisors including:

Rick Warren - Pastor, Saddleback, Erwin McManus - Pastor, Mosaic, Jim Daly - Focus on the Family, Sam Rodriguez - National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Paul Eshleman - Campus Crusade for Christ, Bobby Gruenewald - YouVersion Bible, Brad Lomenick - Catalyst, Leith Anderson - National Association of Evangelicals, Frank Wright - National Religious Broadcasters, Tom Peterson - Catholics Come Home, Geoff Tunnicliffe - World Evangelical Alliance, Gabe Lyons - Q, Luis Palau, George Wood - Assemblies of God, Craig Groeschel - Life Church, Denny Rydberg - Young Life, Andrew Benton - Pepperdine University

According to an interview with Ms. Downey, the film "...is being made with full hearts. We've had scholars and theologians help. We're not pretending to be biblical experts. We brought experts in once the scripts were created to take a look at the scripts to make sure we were accurate and true to the Bible, but obviously we're making a movie, and so we breathed creative expansion into that."

Son of God is rated PG13. The sermon illustrations clips included in the Church kit are safe for the family. The small group clip of the crucifixion might be upsetting to young children. We are including a warning to pastors. We are advising people to decide accordingly if it is appropriate for their children.
