The most accurate telling of Jesus' life on film!
This film is taken right from the book of Luke which many believe to be the book of the Bible that gives the most complete and accurate picture of Jesus' life. If you watch the movie with a Bible open to Luke you'll be able to follow right along. Brian Deacon plays the most believable Jesus (other than Robert Powell in the 1977 mini-series "Jesus of Nazareth) in any film, especially those done recently. The only drawback to this film is that it is quite wordy and at times moves slowly. The crucifiction scenes, however, are very, very powerful. "Jesus" has been shown worldwide to over 1 billion people and it has been translated into over 400 different languages. Until recently, this film has not been widely available and I'm thrilled that Amazon.com has made it more readily available. I highly recommend "Jesus" to anyone who wants an accurate visual telling of the story of Jesus' life without the use of "dramatic license" as has been the trend recently.
The man who changed the face of history...
The stories of Jesus' conception and birth are recorded in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. This movie is based on Luke's account. The story begins with a prologue to summarize Jesus' life as a child and to bring the story into focus. John Heyman researched this film for five years and then filmed it in over 200 locations in the Holy Land.
Over one billion people have viewed this work and it has been translated into more than 425 languages and shown in more than 225 countries. The Epic story of the most controversial life in human history could barely be covered in one movie, so this is more of an overview of Jesus' life.
In 83 minutes, this story will make you want to know more about a man who walked the earth, knowing he would die to give man the ultimate gift - Eternal Life. Throughout the movie, Jesus speaks in parables to teach his followers truth. He calls his disciples and empowers them to convey God's messages to a wider audience.
Jesus' Miracles in this movie included the Feeding of the 5,000, Calming the Storm, Raising Jairus' Daughter, and giving site to the blind. The Last Supper is portrayed and then the Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus starts to make this movie more dramatic. This movie very briefly touches on all the trials and then draws you into the emotional aspects of Jesus' Crucifixion. When he triumphs over death and is raised from the dead he appears in bodily form to show that he is indeed alive.
The story ends with Jesus ascending into the clouds [....]
I recommend this movie to all who want to know how to leave this world alive. This movie left me with a feeling of love for Jesus Christ, who gave his life for us so we can spend an eternity in heaven with our Creator, God.

Incredible Depiction of Jesus!!!
Awarding-winning producer John Heyman answers the question - "who is Jesus," in this remarkable film. He created a film so true-to-life that you'll feel like you're in the first century Palestine with Christ. According to the background information, workshop teams studied the clothing, architecture, customs, and food painstakingly, to ensure the film's complete authenticity, and the film was made on location in Israel, with a cast of more than 5,000 Israelis and Arabs, with virtually every word taken from the Gospel of Luke.
If you like this kind of film, then you will love this, as my family did. The movie's about 2 hours long, and without commercials, it's an incredible depiction of the Savior. Very highly recommended. I wish I could've given it a 10 star rating.
