Product Description

Originally made for TV in 1977, this in-depth (six hours plus) version of Jesus' life is so thorough that the first hour is devoted solely to the story of his birth. The film doesn't skimp on some of the other landmark events of this famous story either. Director Franco Zeffirelli gives more than 12 minutes screen time each to the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Passages of the Bible are quoted verbatim, the locations have a Palestine-like authenticity, and, aside from some of the principals (Robert Powell as Jesus, Olivia Hussey as Mary, and Stacy Keach as Barabbas), many of the non-Roman characters are actually played by Semitic-looking actors. Zeffirelli diligently provides the sociopolitical background that gave rise to Jesus' following and the crisis in belief it caused for the people of Israel (and one or two Romans). While not graphic by today's standards, some of the scenes--baby boys being ripped from their mothers' arms and slaughtered, nails being driven into Jesus' hands--may disturb young and/or sensitive children. --Kimberly Heinrichs

Yes! The definitive best. As close to the King James Holy Bible and accurate as can be. This version adds a few more things from the King James Holy Bible that other films do not (exception: "Jesus" (1979), "In Search of Historic Jesus" (1979). This continues the true story beyond the Crucifixion and when Mary (His mother), Salome and Mary Magdalene went to the tomb to annoint the deceased Jesus. They discovered the stone had been rolled away and the tomb empty and the mysterious man in the white robe. No other movie adds the following: Jesus was "alive" and did appear to his disciples again. According to the bible, Jesus appeared nearly unrecognizable. He showed them his hands and his feet. Then they could see it was him. He spoke to them and even ate a fish. He appeared for 40 more days and then ascended into the clouds (from Earth to Heaven). It is promised that Jesus will return. I, too, enjoy the magnificent, gentle, kind and honest performance of Roberet Powell as "Jesus". Almost hynotizing. Robert Powell was the perfect age to play "Jesus" at age 32. Olivia Hussey, James Farentino, Michael York, Ann Bancroft, Ian McShane, Donald Pleasence, Christopher Plummer, Anthony Quinn, Ernest Borgnine, Fernando Rey and Peter Ustinov are unforgetable in their roles. Immad Cohen played "Young Jesus". Allow your children to see the mini-series. Perhaps one hour at a time. Let them see the Crucifixion and when your child asks "why?", you will know what to say. Jesus died on the cross so that we could live. He saved our lives. And we are all saved.

Prior to its debut on NBC in April 1977, "Jesus of Nazareth" was the subject of considerable controversy after director Franco Zeffirelli suggested his interpretation of Jesus would veer wildly from previous screen versions of the Gospels. Suspecting Zeffirelli, to say nothing of co-screenwriter Anthony Burgess of "Clockwork Orange" fame, had downplayed or even denied Jesus' divinity, some prominent religious leaders condemned the film, sight unseen, for its alleged blasphemy. One sponsor (General Motors) bowed out, and another stepped in (Proctor and Gamble, years before the company fought off unsubstantiated charges that its logo was Satanic). "Jesus of Nazareth" aired as scheduled, in two parts on two successive Sunday evenings, earning high ratings and praise from critics of all faiths.
"Jesus of Nazareth" is, hands down, the finest dramatic retelling of the life of Jesus to date. As George Stevens did with his 1965 fiasco, "The Greatest Story Ever Told," Zeffirelli recruited an all-star cast, but whereas Stevens could only have hired John Wayne to play a Roman Centurion because the Duke's name would look nice on the posters, Zeffirelli chose his stars because they were gifted actors perfect for their roles.
One doesn't ooh and aah at the sight of Rod Steiger, Anthony Quinn, or Laurence Olivier, but rather marvel at how well they believably bring Pontius Pilate, Caiaphas, and Nicodemus to respective life. As good as they are, the most impressive performance may come from a less illustrious "name," James Farentino, who makes for a very commanding Peter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautifully Made Production in Every Way March 30 2014
By Potvin
Format:DVD
Watched this at the age of seven in 1977 on NBC and when I think of Jesus I picture Him as He is betrayed in this television mini-series by Robert Powell. Not just the physical embodiment but the emotional and spiritual as well. This film is packed with some of the finest actors of their day and they bring their best. History and The Bible are brought to life in a vivid way that makes you feel you have been transported though time and are a witness to those days when Christ walked amongst us. I couldn't recommend this production more highly for anyone seeking inspiration and a touch of the divine.

This is a great movie to have on DVD. One of the classics in this genre, I was glad to be able to get it as a gift for a sibling who had complained that it no longer showed on television during Easter/Passover time. I'm glad they still have it around, and at a decent price.

Just watched another movie released today about Jesus, and I had to write this.

Directed by Franco Zeffirelli, Jesus of Nazareth is one of finest movies I have watched till date, on the life of Jesus.
This 1977 movie features some of the greatest actors in English cinema including Laurence Olivier, James Mason, Anthony Quinn, Olivia Hussey, Christopher Plummer, Anne Bancroft, Peter Ustinov, Donald Pleasance, Ernest Borgnine, Claudia Cardinale, Rod Steiger and Robert Powell (as Jesus).
Filmed in Morocco and Tunisia, you get to visualize the culture as close as possible to that recorded in the scriptures. The story begins with the birth of Jesus, and takes you through his life, ministry, crucifixion and resurrection. The films cinematography is realistic, and the composition of music by Maurice Jarre (award winner for the scores in Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago and A Passage to India) adds emotion and realism to every scene.
Even though there might be some narrative deviations from the gospels, Jesus of Nazareth is certainly the most accurate depiction of the life of Jesus, and as a family, we've watched this movie about twenty five times.
If you are follower of Jesus (even if you aren't) you will be touched by his character and compassion, and this movie will surely move you!

Anybody who ever saw this movie and liked it will not forget it. It is very powerful and moving. Yet, its message is so simple. This is very sincere movie making.
