The 1961 film "King of Kings" ranks among the most popular "Jesus movies" ever made. However, the film inevitably leads viewers to ask, "Is that in the Bible, or did they make that up, or what?" "King of Kings:" A Silver Screen Gospel attempts to answer these questions. Mikkelson & Gregg place the film in the gospel genre and argue that it is a form of "silver screen gospel." Provided is a scene-by-scene summary of and commentary on the movie via a "synoptic" approach. The analysis is anchored by reviewing scenes of "King of Kings" alongside analogous events in the New Testament. The detailed commentaries also explore the relationship of the scenes to other ancient literary sources such as the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, non-canonical gospels, apocryphal literature, ancient Jewish and Roman authors such as Josephus and Tacitus, and more.
