As someone who is studying the Gospels, I noticed a fair few places that this film got the message of particular events wrong e.g. the Canaanite woman and the trial with Pilate.
However, overall I found this to be a fantastic portrayal of Jesus. Too many films show Christ to be a sombre distant character who is very difficult to approach. Christian teaching is that God/Jesus wants a loving relationship and that message comes through strong here. Jesus is shown to be a real man who deals with real feelings and has real friendships that are deep and meaningful. He jokes and plays with his friends as well as teaching his important message.
The portrayal of Satan (although maybe a little bit cliche) was fantastic. The temptations he offered were believable and you could tell Jesus struggled to resist like any man would. The film also deals really well the problems of evil and suffering in the world.
There was a great job of introducing most of the disciples too, making them seem like individuals rather than a pack of men who just follow their leader blindly. Usually Jesus films will only introduce Peter and Judas properly, and perhaps Matthew and Thomas, but this one only left out about three of the twelve for real introductions, also making room for Mary Magdalene to have a substantial role.
This isn't one to learn your scripture from, but it's a good place to get a feel for the character of a loving, friendly Jesus.

I have the boxed set that includes this DVD and it was recommended by a friend. Both He and I repeatedly enjoyed the films. This one was a replacement for my friend and I was delighted to find it after searching for so long. The acting is amazing, as are the sets. I highly recommend this.

Format: DVD
This film really isn't about Jesus Christ, at least not as depicted in the Bible. If you want a visual expression of popular uninformed myths about Jesus, this is the film for you. However, it is staggeringly inconsistent with Jesus as portrayed in the Bible.

For instance, as a prophet, John the Baptist was fully aware of the deity of Christ the second he met him. He didn't need to help him turn from a regular Joe uncertain of his future into the Son of God over a suppertime chat.

Also, the suggestion that Christ sinned is inconsistent with the entire Bible, and on theological grounds renders his sacrifice pointless, as any old person could have done it if the criteria for bearing the sins of the world didn't involve being sinless.

Ultimately, the best advice I've got if you want to know who Jesus Christ is, is to read one (or all) of the 4 eye-witness accounts of his life documented in the Bible - probably John's gospel as that's the most personal of the 4. Also, really don't bother with this. It's misleading and hugely uninformed, and very disappointing given the painstaking accuracy to the original text shown in some other entries in this series, such as the excellent, Emmy-winning Joseph, or Abraham.

I agree with John Corbett. This is not a film concerning the gospel of Jesus (as outlined in Matthew, Mark , Luke and John), but neither is it a coherent objective view of the life of the man believed to be a god. This film fails as an account of the gospels and also as an artistic interpretation of the life of a prophet. While I appreciate the intent of the director, I feel a little more research into his subject would have benefitted. Christians will condemn this film as blasphemous and/or heresy. Atheists will condemn it as purile fantasy. Agnostics won't know what the film is about. In this film, Jesus is a grinning idiot with an american accent, relying on others to decide for him what he should do. Pontius Pilate (played by the excellent Gary Oldman, for shame) is cast as an unbelievably and historically inaccurate stupid roman governor (whoever Pilate was, he was a Roman Governor and such men were not known for their lack of insight or intelligence). Whoever made this film has absolutely no idea about the history, meaning, and consequences of the period they try to portray. While the sympathetic may claim that the intent was to fill in the gaps found in the New Testament, it must be said that such a task would be made easier and more coherent if one actually read the Gospels and, indeed, their critics. I suppose the director wanted to present Jesus to a modern audience, which is why he set Jesus, in his torn, judaic clothes in the desert to meet a man dressed in a black 1990's suit, with a retro-crop hairsyle (a la Jeanne-Claude Van Damme) (representing the devil, of course). Maybe this will appeal to our youth, but it is not historically, semantically, archeologically, theologically or cinematically accurate (to present the Devil as a businessman is a little unimaginative).Read more ›

When I saw this movue several years ago I really like it a great deal, but obviously my opinion has changed a bit. While it does humanise Jesus in a way that other films haven't, I think it misses out on some of the points of his ministry, It does remind us about free will and the importance of love in and for humanity and the fact that at the end of the day we are responsible for our own actions and not God.
I think the casting was quite good, despite all the variations in accents, and the sets and production were also very nicely done. There are a f few weird bits, I also didn't feel the final scene was necessary and it was a bit out of place. Another point that some of the scenes that were in the original broadcast appear to have been edited out from this particular DVD release.
Not a bad film, but not the best either. If you want to see Jesus as a bit of a hippie, this is perfect for you.
