Close to Jesus"Close to Jesus", the epic telling of the untold story surrounding the life of Jesus, describes the fascinating lives of several of those persons most meaningful to the life and times of Jesus Christ.
The revelation of Christ's birth, the grandeur of his work and the miracle of his resurrection were the beginning of a new age, but it was the disciples of Jesus Christ, driven by their unwavering faith and love, that spread his glorious message to the distant corners of the world.
