The picture that Brian Deacon is most famous for is the picture of Jesus on the cross staring at the camera. An early still of this shot has blood on Jesus face and nose and has Jesus (Deacon) look away from the camera. This still is rare as only a few hundred copies were made. The shot that was used for Warner Brothers and on the back of the 90's VHS release features the shot of Deacon staring at the camera but with no blood on his face. See more »

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.
