Greatest Story Ever Told, The

Greatest Story Ever Told, The

Throughout the tumult of two thousand years a story has lived, a story of a man whose influence was widespread, whose life affected many people then and now. Many people called him the master, his friends worshipped him, and his enemy feared him. From a humble beginning to a world shaking end the greatest life ever lived has come down through the centuries as the greatest story ever told. Such was the effect of The Greatest Story Ever Told that during its first year on the air it won many awards and was enthusiastically received by clergy men of all denominations.

This religious drama is filled with compassion and significance as it tells the story of the life of Jesus and was undoubtedly ambitious for its time, having a full orchestra as well as a sixteen-voice chorus. The Greatest Story Ever Told was the first ever radio series to characterize Christ, using a regular actor, Warren Parker, to play the role. Parker, however, remained anonymous for the show’s run and there were never any cast credits.
