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!
