Life In Jerusalem From Public Ministry Until Passion And Death Of Jesus
11 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Part Two Of Jesus Of Jerusalem highlights the life of Jesus during his public ministry particularly his life in Jerusalem wherein he taught the crowds and had his arguments with the Phariseees up to the period of his passion and death on the cross. It starts after he fed the crowd of five thousand men together with their companions of women and children by performing a miracle of multiplication of the five loaves and two fishes up to his final appearance to his apostles after his resurrection.

No question that a lot of important events were presented in it during the public ministry of Jesus.Franco Zeffirelli did a wonderful job of recreating theses many wonderful events especially when Jesus was in Jerusalem. Robert Powell did a masterful performance as Jesus.As for the other members of the cast, Anne Bancroft was definitely great as Mary Magdalene.Others worthy of mention are Rod Steiger as Pontius Pilate and Anthony Quinn as Caiaphas.

If there was only one thing that a Christian might notice is the final scene wherein Jesus appears to his apostles after he was buried in the tomb after dying on the cross. The scene presented Jesus as a ghost-like figure rather than a person who came back to life. But one must realize that this mini-series wants to present Jesus more as an important figure in history rather than what Christians from different denominations perceive him to be.Despite of it,I still would consider it worthy mini-series about Jesus after it was first shown four decades ago.
