Searching for the historical Jesus
18 March 2010 | by (Whaleyville, VA) – See all my reviews

Any documentary on a religious subject is bound to stir feelings and misgivings,and The Search For Jesus is no exception. This film does not seek to prove nor disprove the existence of Jesus nor to prove his deity. It does present a fair picture of the historical Jesus and what some people think of him. I did not get the impression that Jennings was biased against Jesus of Galilee. If anything, he struck me as being subtly favourable to the Man. Jennings does not present Jesus as the Messiah nor Savior of the World. He leaves that open to the viewer, which is appropriate for a documentary, especially of this nature. I found The Search For Jesus to be one of the better documentaries on the subject in that it was very informative and did not disrespect nor grossly misrepresent Jesus' mission on Earth. I will venture to say that Christians could be well rewarded for watching TSFJ, and non-believers could very well find as much to savor.
