5.0 out of 5 stars Definately Worth Your Thought! June 9 2005
Format:DVD
I was amazed by this film, the fact that science was applied to the bible and many elements of 'Christ" that people discount as fairy tale, were put to the acid test, was great. I spent 35 years of my life not believing in Christ and the last 10 believing. As a Christian I have no doubt of Christ and all that goes with Him, as a former non believer I completely understand the denial and blatant rejection of Christ. This film is a film that I can take to non- believers (that are objective) and try to separate the spiritual experience from the technical 'factual' proofs which are abundant.
I find it interesting that the person posting below me is so certain that Jesus never existed. Just like that, he boldly states his truth but without any evidence, without research, without warrant, and I dare say more than likely without real soul searching and a deep thirst for any truth outside of his own. He offers no evidence just criticism and opinion and he bases it upon nothing.
I believe that anybody looking for truth or answers would be interested in a film of this sort. But a person who watches anything knowing their own truth from the beginning and having complete unwillingness to find balance, is destine to be one of those who in an ignorant and haphazard bliss, throws all (good and bad) to the wind.
If this film and its makers have sweat to put forth scientific and logical evidence and on top of that they found a way to convey all of these things quite well to the lay person, it is my suggestion that when making a comment such as "Jesus is A Mythological Figure" that you continue on and explain your scientific or long researched reason for this statement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scientific Research with a Biblical Perspective Sept. 24 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I tend to be very skeptical of "life of Jesus" illustrations. I watch a lot of historical programs on previous cultures, and I understand that while the science can determine and confirm certain aspects, it is easy to extrapolate into fictionalized accounts and storytelling.
There have been other "scientific" searches for Jesus, using archeological evidence, but they are often so obviously done by non-Christians, or even anti-Christians, that their bias is clear while they pretend to be impartial. This series does have a bias, too. It is produced by theologians, and yes, they clearly have belief; but they do not push that aspect. Rather, this program says this "X" (science) proves this "Y" (biblical description) to be true. They compare it to other events, but do not make assumptions, but leave the rest for your own conclusions. I found this series fascinating, well done, and balanced, using scientific process to illuminate biblical text, and relate it to today. The forensic reconstruction is particularly interesting. A very practical application of science to help us deconstruct iconography. A great gift for a thinking Christian.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bold, fact-based, brings you closer to Jesus... Oct. 18 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This 3-boxed set of beautiful, documentary-style videos examines the life and times of the historical Jesus Christ within the backdrop of First-century Judea's troubles and turmoil -vs- the awaited hope of many in the Messiah of Israel. It examines the life of Jesus in light of the Bible, the Old and New Testament Scripture, and the Gospel account, as further supported by the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls. The video is straightforward at examining the evidence within the context of scientific and historical inquiry and data, Bible accounts, as well as opening up the discussion of the Resurrection of Jesus to a matter of one's own deep, interpersonal faith. The evidence is shown to withstand the test of time, even after 2000 years! It's a realistic and poignant view of life in the First-century and the best presentation of the life of Jesus that I've seen so far, aside from the Franco Zeffirelli version of 'Jesus of Nazareth'. This video encourages further exploration into who Jesus was... and is! It really brings a person as close to a knowledge of Jesus aside from the intimate look at His life as presented in the Bible. Experts of diverse specialties, from Israel, Great Britain, and France, were consulted on this project. The BBC outdid itself with this series! It puts the viewer in tune with the emotional and spiritual aspect of the crucifixion. See the beautiful, first temple recreated here, as well as the surrounding cities. You'll get a feel for the era. This is a candid video presentation which I recommend to all. I cannot say enough about it. Visit settings such as Bethlehem, Nazareth, Jerusalem, Gethsemane, the Mount of Olives, the city of Sepphorus, and Cesaria in recreations of how it all appeared in Biblical times. Fascinating and inspiring, will undoubtedly bring students, teachers, seekers, and followers closer to the saving knowledge of God's grace!
