Unlike other films about Jesus Christ, Robert Powell's portrayal of Jesus Christ (in this film) starting from his dialogue "Woe to you, scribes and the Pharisees" till the dialogue "For I and my Father are one and the same" is very close to the personality of Jesus Christ in New Testament.
New Testament (Matthew 7:28-7:29) clearly points out that the crowds were amazed by the teachings of Jesus Christ, because Jesus Christ taught as one who had authority and not as their teachers of the law. See more »

[Peter is drunk]
Andrew. Andrew, I'm not like you. I'm not a follower of priests and prophets; I'm a fisherman. I've got my family to think of. You followed the Baptist, now follow this one...
[grabbing Peter's Arm]
Just leave me alone! Why did you bring Him here to me?
[grabbing his net]
*This* is my life! My nets... my boat.
Go on! Follow Him! But leave me!
Come on, you can't talk to him when he's like this.
[motioning the others to leave]

I have watched this film for many years with my family. Each year we follow the life of Jesus through Holy Week and Easter Sunday. The director has made this a film that is understandable for all ages and makes the realism unique. I would highly recommend this film for families. Even though I loved "The Passion of the Christ," I found this film easier to view for the family. Maybe we'll watch in earnest when the kids are a little older, teens perhaps. All in all this film takes you through an understanding of life as it would have been seen through the eyes of the common person. Perhaps it is this reality that allows people to gravitate toward a love for the film and a commitment to making the viewing of it each year and family tradition. Looking for a great family movie to help teach the faith, this is it.
