Yep. It’s been that type of week. And this kick-ass digital website for Killing Jesus makes it even better.
Religion aside, this is an HTML 5, multimedia, tour de force from the folks at Mullen. Complete with audio clips, archaeological tidbits and sweeping tableaus that scroll like butter, the site delivers “the greatest story every retold” just in time for Easter. The three-hour docudrama airs Palm Sunday on the National Geographic Channel (trailer here).
Prepare to be immersed (to immerse yourself?) in a digital site that tackles Jesus from three different viewpoints: Son of God (the view of Christ and his disciples), Son of Man (the view of the Jewish priests of the time), and Threat to Rome (the political/economic implications).
Warning: You can easily spend hours scrolling through each chapter, flipping from one perspective to the other. Simple and straightforward navigation lets you get lost in the story without getting lost in the website.
Yes, there are bible verses, but relax. This isn’t your typical Sunday School lesson. The writing is easily digestible to keep you scrolling along at a good clip. The site will also surprise you with informative audio clips here and there, so make sure you volume is turned up. The background track isn’t overly annoying, so there’s that.
Finally, did I mention the tableaus? Do yourself a favor and go full screen. You’ll thank me later.
