Many evangelical churches in America donated money to help pay for the Jesus film as well as finance the New Media Bible Book of Genesis and Book of Luke. For compensation, many of these people were flown in to Israel and were used as extras in the film but most of their shots were cut out from the Jesus film but were still used in the Book of Luke series.

A somewhat expurgated version of the gospel of Luke, Brian deacons version of Jesus is appealing, if somewhat un-animated. I have a great love for this film ( mainly due to the fact that it was the first film about Jesus I can remember seeing from my childhood.) Not as epic as Zeffirelli's film, nor as graphic as Gibson's, a faithful representation with only a few omissions ( I'm sure either due to budget or time constraints). the acting is at times somewhat melodramatic, but that is part of the charm of this film. the cinematography is not ground breaking but certainly serves its purpose and doesn't overshadow the story, and really thats one of the best things about this film, nothing in it overshadows the story as a whole.
