    The closest you're going to get to that is the In The Beginning anime series that Osamu Tezuka was working on before he died. I believe it was 26 episodes long and it covered the beginning to Jesus's birth. It use to air on EWTN back in the late 90's-early 00's. Wasn't a bad show. Dub was alright and it had minimal edits.

    Thanks for sharing the video. It's quite nice, especially for the Easter season. I'd love to see more like it.

    Not bad, although I wish there was more of a focus on who Jesus was and why it was important that he was crucified. There are a couple flashbacks to some ministry he did (such as "pay to Caesar what is Caesar's"), but they don't last long so most of it is merely Jesus being beaten then hung on the cross. You feel sorry for the guy, of course, but I'm not sure it's the best tool to get the unfamiliar to really know who Jesus was, since it only focuses on a very narrow window of time. As a teaser to further education, though, I suppose it works.

    Yeah. The trick here is that the main character is the killer thief; we see him listening to Jesus and then committing the crime he regrets and then sticking up for Jesus on the cross. So they made it to drive home the point that redemption and forgiveness can be for anyone, not so much Christ's status as the son of God (though the short makes that obvious too).

    Resurrected this thread because I just got through watching it and because today is Good Friday.
