Synopsis
ESTHER AND THE KING
In this melodramatic, religious epic, Joan Collins stars as Esther, the femme fatale who becomes the focus of newly widowed King Ahasuerus (Richard Egan). It is Persia, 4th century B.C., and the King has been trying to quash the campaign of hate waged against the Jews by his evil minister Haman (Sergio Fantoni). But before the King is successful at winning Esther's love and instilling peace among his countrymen, the pair embarks upon several adventures, including a beautiful woman who competes with Esther for the King's love.

JOSEPH AND HIS BRETHREN
Joseph and His Brethren, brought to the silver screen by Irving Rapper, is a dramatization of the powerful Old Testament parable of Joseph, a slave who frees himself from the shackles of oppression and ascends to the noble rank of minister in the pharaoh's court.

THE POWER OF THE RESURRECTION
The Power of the Resurrection, a historical film about love, faith, friendship, and revivification, depicts Christ's final days on earth as seen through the eyes of His Disciples, Simon and Peter.

THE GREAT COMMANDMENT
Set in 30 A.D., The Great Commandment focuses on the emerging Christian movement and its resulting effects upon Joel, a young Judean scholar who heads up a revolt against the Romans. Despite his warlike tendencies, Joel is convinced by Jesus of Nazareth to take a peaceful approach, which helps him to avoid violence when he's confronted by the Roman soldier who murdered his brother.
