Brian Deacon has said that this was the most disappointing film he's ever been a part of. The entire book of Luke was filmed and Deacon was told that the final product would be seen as a 4 hour epic but producer John Heyman wanted the entire book of Luke to be viewed as a Sunday school tool instead being released on film. A shorter condensed 2 hour version was released as the "Jesus Film" and a few scenes had to be re shot for the theatrical release which explains the continuity in the film version and in the New Media Bible version.

I bought this for myself several weeks ago among other DVDs. I watched all the others immediately. But I waited until I was in the right frame of mind. Oh, what I missed all those days!
There are those who will say this version is dry. But I say this version is full of truth and peace.
The mood which pervades this wonderful film is so close to the Gospel as I have read it, and it is told with such a lovely pace of calm and reflection that it calls one into the telling with gentleness and not commercial flash and color. That is, if one is ready.
We are all so "spoiled" by melodramatic presentations that we forget that the story of the life of Jesus was dramatic on its own merits without need for Hollywood's elaborations or expansions.
"Jesus" is a movie I recommend to everyone, yes, even those who have no faith or interest in the Christ, if not more so.
Many blessings to this film, its creators and participants and the message it imparts with such grace, truth and peace.
