Born on October 2, 1931, in New Jersey to a Jewish- Italian family, Morris Cerullo was raised in a Jewish orphanage. When he was two years of age his parents perished in an automobile accident. By the age of 14, his belief in Jesus Christ had become apparent and began preaching the gospel at 16 years of age. After graduating divinity school in 1953, Morris Cerullo began ministering with Theresa, who would later become his wife. They have three children, David, Susan, and Mark.
Morris Cerullo preaches conferences in outdoor crusades and leads the people to follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior and encourages them to have faith in God. He never took the credit for the healings that took place, but that is was Jesus Christ. He still travels as a missionary to many countries even today. Many people have received sight, the deaf have had their hearing restored and the lame are now able to walk. These are some of the miracles that our Lord actually did that you can watch in the Jesus Christ movie.

Two honorary doctorates from Florida Beacon College and Oral Roberts University were received by Dr.Cerullo. He has written over 200 books, devotionals and study bibles.
