1.0 out of 5 stars Blasphemeous Sept. 10 2005
Perhaps it would have atleast been a balanced interview if Josh McDowell,Lee Strobel,William Lane Craig or Ravi Zacharias had been able to comment instead of it being biased and one sided from the rather apparent self proclaimed scholar, John Dominic Crossan. As well as four of the seven 'scholars' who belong to the Jesus Seminar!
(According to Marcus J. Borg, a participating scholar in the Jesus Seminar and author of Jesus in Contemporary Scholarship, Trinity Press International © 1994, page 160)
**After analysis and discussion of a saying attributed to Jesus, members of the seminar voted on whether they thought the saying goes back to Jesus himself by casting one of four differently colored beads into a ballot box.
A red vote means, "I think these are the authentic words of Jesus"; pink means, "A close approximation of what Jesus said"; gray means, "Not Jesus' words, though they may reflect his ideas"; and black means, "Inauthentic; definitely not spoken by Jesus."
So basically, if you prefer to weigh your faith on the out come of colored beads, then this is for you. Other wise don't waste time and money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply TERRIBLE July 4 2004
If you are someone who doesn't believe any of the Bible (i.e. like the Jesus Seminar) then you'll love this video. I honestly don't know why they even bothered unless it was to support their own disbelief. SAVE your money and read the book Case for Christ.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly slanted. April 9 2004
It was almost humorous to listen to Peter Jennings try to report this as being balanced.
I won't waste my time any further by commenting on this agenda driven show.
For a point-by-point response to the silliness--Read this--[...]

4.0 out of 5 stars Faithful to Factual Data July 29 2004
By Salvador A. Delarosa III - Published on Amazon.com
I saw this when it was shown on television. I was enthralled by the fact that it presented the factual history of the life of Jesus the Christ.

I recently purchased it through Amazon.com and viewed it immediately upon recieving the package.

I would like to inform the reader that I am a devout Christian of the Catholic religion who is not afraid to listen to, or read about, nor even see films that contain historical, archaelogical data to support their viewpoints on the life of the one now known to us as Jesus the Christ. All the other previous reviewers cannot deny the facts. All they can do is beg the Bible when it comes to espousing their viewpoints on Christianity. They'll even tell us that we are blasphemers and will rot in hell for not believing in what they believe. But most of them are not even faintly familiar with the actual history of the Bible. Well, I feel sorry for them. Hey, it's the Christian thing to do, is it not?

Anyway, job well done in presenting the FACTS, Mr.Jennings. I await the release on DVD of the episode you recently did on the historical life of Mary, the mother of Jesus the Christ.

ABC did a great job doing true investigative journalism on this one. Very accurate and very interesting! I learned a lot about the background and times that Jesus lived in!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Documentaries! March 3 2011
By Kerry Cochran - Published on Amazon.com
This is a well researched and balanced look into the historical Jesus. Peter Jennings is an excellent host, and one of my favorite news people of all time. He states from the beginning that he can not say whether Jesus was literally the Son of God. That question can only be answered by faith. I'd say that's pretty fair and doesn't take anything away from anyone's religious views.

I watch this DVD every year during Lent, and any other time of the year I want a little pick-me-up for my soul. It is amazingly relevant and thought provoking. And the images of the Holy Land are just great!
3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but misses a lot Sept. 7 2014
By David Ratliff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Peter Jennings was one of my favorites and this program is up to par. Well-filmed and interesting, but as an amateur bible scholar who leans towards the "radical" side, I would wish the program had been a little more challenging to the traditional teachings and attitudes about Paul of Tarsus. There was some of that, but presented mildly so as to not be "offensive" to anyone, it seems.
5.0 out of 5 stars THE SEARCH FOR JESUS A GREAT SEARCH April 30 2014
By GWH - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is truly a great documentary. Very well researched, unbiased, and extremely well reported on. For the most part, the fundamentalist will have a problem with it, as I have seen in other reviews of this video that I have read. The theologians and scholars and those that think in theological terms, and follow the Jesus Seminar, will love it. Simple as that.
