Purpose for the audience: To show that Jesus was God in the flesh who came to dwell with us. It demonstrates that Jesus was for all people and not just the Jews. It also brought in the idea that Mary and Jesus knew his mission and fate all along.
Historical prospective: The movie follows St. John very closely, but does not give the whole account of his ministry. Clearly demonstrates the brutality of Roman rule. People are oppressed and occupied and if anyone spoke against them they were killed. It showed the soldiers moving a cart out of Pilates path that killed a boy on it. It also demonstrates the Pharisee’s plan to stop him from interfering with the Passover and the great length sought to discredit Jesus.
The movie covers before Jesus was born - after his resurrection.
