A classic motion picture set in the time of Christ. Based on the novel by Bob Jones Sr.
A story of bloodshed and shipwreck, of intrigue and murder, of love and redemption. Wine of Morning, based on the novel by Bob Jones Jr., is the first award-winning Unusual Films production. The film traces the life of Joel, a promising young man who turns outlaw to free his people from Roman tyranny. As "Barabbas," Joel becomes the murderer and robber chosen by the mob to be released in place of Christ. Although Barabbas is mentioned only briefly in the Gospels, the screen character is alive and plausible. Scenes are set in Nazareth, Cana of Galilee, Capernaum, Jerusalem, Cyprus, Antioch, and Caesarea. Wine of Morning represented the United States at the International Congress of Schools of Cinema and Television in Cannes, France.
