Historic Jesus
The Transfiguration

The most important costumes in the film are those worn by British actor Brian Deacon, who plays the part of Christ. Deacon is clothed in an off-white tunic and mantle for most of the film, but, after the Transfiguration, he appears in a pure white robe. "It is the same sort of thing as the Greek philosophers wore," stated costume designer Rochelle Zaltzman.
