The Jesus Of Nazareth DVD contains a 270-minute feature length version of the eight-episode television miniseries of the same name. Edited from the original six-hour plus version, the feature plots the epic chronicle of the life of Jesus Christ--beginning with the arrangements for the wedding between Joseph and Mary, through to Jesus's birth, his encounter with John the Baptist, all the way up to the Crucifixion and Divine Resurrection. Directed by Oscar nominee Franco Zeffirelli ("Othello"; "Hamlet") the all-star cast in Jesus Of Nazareth includes: Anne Bancroft; Laurence Olivier; Michael York; James Mason; Rod Steiger; and Robert Powell (as Jesus). The beautiful filming and reverent performances by the international cast add depth and humanity to this very passionate and emotional production.
Originally made for TV in 1977, this in-depth version of Jesus' life is so thorough that the first hour is devoted solely to the story of his birth. The film doesn't skimp on some of the other landmark events of this famous story either. Director Franco Zeffirelli gives ample screen time each to the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Passages of the Bible are quoted verbatim, the locations have a Palestine-like authenticity, and, aside from some of the principals (Robert Powell as Jesus, Olivia Hussey as Mary, and Stacy Keach as Barabbas), many of the non-Roman characters are actually played by Semitic-looking actors. Zeffirelli diligently provides the socio-political background that gave rise to Jesus' following and the crisis in belief it caused for the people of Israel (and one or two Romans). --Kimberly Heinrichs, Amazon.com

It even states it is 374 mins on the DVD case. A bit annoyed as the is the 2nd time I've purchased it (different packaging) so I thought I was getting the non-edited version but I wasn't
I have not yet watched it entirely , but the running time is given as over 6.5 hours , which is the longest of the versions I have on DVD .
The transfer to blu ray is spectacular , however ! I don't know what I expected , but it really is unbelievable . After watching it for years in it's "grainy" form ; in fact , it's better than I remember the original tv screening .
The colours are so vibrant and "real" and it gives the whole thing a different dimension .
Well worth it !
in my view, Powell does the best Jesus of any of the screen productions, probably simply because he is the best actor to have portrayed Jesus.
There is also a cut-down film version of about 4 1/2 hours available elsewhere.
This 6 hour version lingers more on the events before Jesu's birth.
fast delivery, and a great price, as always.
In my view, this, Franco Zeffirelli's version, is the definitive film on the life-story of Jesus of Nazareth as we know it from the Bible. It is a beautifully shot and portrayed film, a gem. Anything that came before or after cannot hold a candle to it! All the very famous actors in the cast also make this a memorial to them. Once artists are dead, only sequences on film can bring them back to us and to later generations as they were in their prime. I also think that Olivia Hussey made such a wonderful Mary! A real delight to watch and I have always remembered it from when I first saw it in the 1970s, on TV, and am so glad to have been able to get a copy to enjoy again when I want to.
As to the film itself,well what can I say,just a "Wonderful" film.I always think of this as being the nearest to what actually happened.The resurrection of Lazarus is so powerful,so compassionate,it makes me proud to be a follower of Jesus Christ.He truly is the Son of God.
