The Gospel According to St. Matthew is a film that draws on the biblical account of the life of Jesus Christ. The film primarily focuses on the words and deeds of Jesus as they were recorded by St. Matthew in the first book of the New Testament. The story portrays Jesus as living and traveling throughout Palestine during the time of Roman occupation in Israel. As he meets the poor and marginalized of society, he encourages them, heals them, cares for their needs, and teaches them about the kingdom of God. Some people do not receive Jesus' message, and actively resist him. He is eventually arrested by the Romans and put to death, only to rise from the dead after three days.
