Cut for DVD release
The original film was almost 9 hours in length and, while it was not a word for word account from the Bible, it did provide a tremendous glimspe into first century life in the Roman empire and early persecutions of the Church. The biggest problem with the dvd release is the fact that almost one-third of the film was edited out. The editing was done by simply removing whole segments from the original resulting in holes in both plot and dialogue. If the studio ever releases the entire film on dvd it would be worth owning. I used to watch my VHS copy every year after Easter and Jesus of Nazareth. A good alternate choice to this edited version is the dvd Peter and Paul, also available from CBD.

The original series was nine hours of viewing time. Your DVD has only six hours. What happened to the other three
hours? I would like to own the actual original viewing hours.

Not long enough
This movie as are most Christian movies is not completely accurate. But it is a TV Movie not the bible. However the story is close enough. (Study your bible first) I do like the way that it mixes scripture, history and fiction. If anything you can learn a little about the leaders of Rome in that time. My gripe is that this movie was originally 8 hours long on TV and later on VHS. 25% of the story is now missing that makes it less intriguing for me. I hope someday the full 8 hours will be remastered and released. That would be a 5 star movie.
