Did you actually watch this movie?, 15 February 2002
Author: Rev Tim Benjamin from Cincinnati, Ohio

I saw the first part of this mini-series a few years back when it was on. My wife and I rented it a few weeks back because I remembered wanting to see the rest of it. What a wonderful movie! I have a Seminary Degree and am the pastor of the church and I have ordered a copy of the DVD to use with the Youth Group of the church I am serving. Finally, we see Jesus as he most likely was. He isn't the stiff character we have seen in other installments of the Gospel story. Those who call this movie blasphemy must not have read too many pages of the Gospel. Jesus was considered an undisciplined by many people including his mother (Matthew 12:46-50). Of course, we all know today that an undisciplined person would not have been able to bear the cross, not to mention sacrificing Himself for others.

Christ offers us new life, and this mini-series offers new life to a colorful, wonderful, and historical story about our Savior, Jesus Christ. Was there some creative license involved in this production? No doubt there was. But the basic story was the same. Christ was born, he lived and taught and healed. He faced execution for crimes He did not commit and He left the tomb three days later alive. That is the story we get here.

All of you critics of this mini-series relax. It could have been a whole lot worse.
