Robert Powell's portrayal of Jesus is the most powerful and compelling ever.The all star cast has to be one of the best ever assembled.This movie is unparalleled in it's telling of the Gospels.We've come a long way technology wise, but an acting job like this will likely never be seen again.
I have used Jesus of Nazareth as a group study of Christ's life for the past 30+ years. Broken into eleven 40-45 min viewings it fits perfectly between Christmas, starting with His birth, and Easter, with His death and resurrection. The video perfectly blends all four gospels and is an incredible depiction of the life and times of our Lord. Costumes, acting and settings are very professionally done. The video has been around since it aired as a mini-series in 1977, but is a wonderful addition to your religious library.
