I have watched this movie because I love Nino Manfredi, but I felt deeply offended by the lack of historical honesty in this movie, which reports the most fabulous inventions about the life of Jesus. Winged angels speaking to humans, Jesus ascending to the sky surrounded by a halo of light, callous roman centurions converting in a wink to the Christian faith...the most outrageous offense to history is the alleged orders of Tiberius ordering the Roman troops to slaughter the Jews because they persuaded Pilate to kill the God-Jesus. Later trial of Pilate by the Romans is never mentioned in any historical account. Miracles performed by Pilate on behalf of Jesus are a simple offense to intelligence.
