Gadi Rol (Andrew) was only 20 years old when filming began. He took time away from his studies at the University of Tel Aviv to appear in the film/New Media Bible. Rol is also missing from the final scene in the film where Jesus ascends into heaven. The New Media Bible shows Jesus ascending into heaven then shows closeups of the disciples and Rol (Andrew) is not among them. Rol would go on to become a popular stage director and Israel.

An alternate version was filmed concurrently with the English one, with the actors speaking in the authentic languages (Aramic, Hebrew, Greek and Latin) appropriate for the events and people portrayed. This version is then used with a voice-over narration in any of several modern language. See more »
The Life of Christ as recorded in the Gospel of Luke
This was, I thought, the best cinematic summary of the life of Christ I have yet seen. Brian Deacon, who portrays Jesus, looks the part and speaks with quiet authority. His interaction with children in the movie gives a moving picture of the tenderness of Christ. The words of Christ are given in modern translation making it easy for the viewer to understand the language. Simon Peter (Niko Nitai) looks the part and acts it well. The movie allows about the same amount for the last week of Christ's life as does the gospel (about 25%). While not a perfect movie (nothing on earth is perfect), this is a delightful one. If you are looking for an accurate picture of Christ which accords well with the Bible, this is it!
