Beginning in 1975, after two years of preparation in Morocco and Tunisia, film director Franco Zeffireill began work on a $12 million, on-location, all-star-cast production of “Jesus of Nazareth.” Advised by a panel of distinguished theologians and Bible scholars, the six-and-a-half-hour religious opus was praised for its high degree of historical accuracy (as well it should be). “Jesus of Nazareth” continues to be a way to genuinely study the first century AD and the Son of God Who walked among us, was executed and resurrected … and especially when you order your copy from Vision Video with their accompanying 62-page study guide. Using the excellent series and the study guide, you can organize either a 12-part series, or weekend retreat or topical study. Pay special attention to the details of the ceremonies, dress, homes, workplaces, palaces and temples, for the director spent a great deal of time and energy trying to get that as historically accurate as possible … another reason this set is such a fine resource for your church. At the price, even smaller congregations can afford a set for their Sunday school and church library. Perfect for any part of the year, “Jesus of Nazareth: is particularly appropriate for this time, as Lent moves toward Easter. This set with study guide is truly something that should be available to every Christian family!
This is a timeless classic about the story of Jesus from his birth to his death. Possibly one of the best films to date that truly gives a view of not only Jesus' life but a realistic view of the culture and people of Jesus' time. An excellent film, I will recommend it to anyone!!
Absolutely spectacular!! Best movie I've ever seen. Producer, Franco Zeffirelli, had recently become a Christian before making this film and prayed earnestly for a perfect cast. Indeed, God answered his prayers! "Highly" recommended!!!
