Who is Jesus?
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I just received this DVD set a week ago and have not stopped watching it. Biblical scriptures and stories have been brought so much closer to home. A few acting scenes leave much to be desired but overall I think that this set is very good - but what I want to know is the name of the actor that plays Jesus in the stories of Mary, Judas, and Thomas. I think he does a phenomenal job and really the only thing that I don't like about this set is that the cast is not included in the credits. IF ANYONE KNOWS WHO PLAYED JESUS THEN PLEASE LEAVE A POSTING HERE. Thank you so much."
Jesus Christ did exist!

"The assertion that Jesus Christ never existed is beyond ridiculous. Whether you accept Him as your savior or not, his existence is thoroughly documented in many sources, including from those who were hostile to him and would have preferred he didn't exist - the Romans and the Jews. We have many reliable ancient Roman and Jewish texts from the time period of Jesus that corroborate his life and the message of the Gospels.

Only the most rabid, fanatical atheists deny the existence of Jesus. For factual information corroborating the existence of Jesus, I recommend "The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel.
I liked it, but not biblical

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I only watched the first episode on the 4 disc--Mary Magdalene. I know that I am re-studying the bible and as I was watching thie movie, it made logical sense why Mary slept with many men...when Jesus initially was there when she was about to be stoned for her adultery and later at the well, said you are married to 5 husbands (meaning intimate contact with men)...but this movie did not illustrate or show that and surprisingly showed her with the anointed oil, kissing his feet and washing it with her tears and wiping it with her hair...thought this was another woman with no name in the Bible...however it was well-written and brought tears to my eyes since women are mistreated and sometimes viewed as a prize or piece of meat as they explained in the movie (a man's possession and not to ever love them)....I enjoyed the acting (astounding and superb) and want to buy it and watch the other versions from the Public Library!"
