This film is more of a seminar in a DVD. Created and presented by some of the most famous apologists, the DVD has one section that covers the range of questions that new believers, and skeptics have about the Christian faith. It can be used for groups, for adults, teenagers, and for individuals. Also included it the "Jesus Movie" a Bible-based film of the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. It covers the essential elements of the Christian faith, while also providing the "facts" as apologetics experts can do.
High recommended for this purpose - not just another movie about Jesus.

Since swapadvd doesn't have the cover description, I thought it might be helpful for me to post it. "Have you ever had questions about faith you couldn't find answers for? Or has anyone ever asked you a question about your faith that left you speechless? "JESUS: Fact or Fiction?" can help answer these tough questions in your life. Explore responses to over 50 of life's toughest questions from experts such as: Darrell Bock, William Dembski, Gary Habermas, Paul Maier, Josh McDowell, Lee Strobel, and Ravi Zacharias.
Also, watch the classic "JESUS" film with fascinating new audio commentary and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film. A unique "Discovery Glass" feature enables you to gain insight from experts while you watch the film. It also contains a journey map and DVD guide inside that helps you go through these questions step by step. Great for one-to-one ministry or facilitated in a group.
The Most Effective Tool in A Long Time For Communicating the
Rosendo Herrera | Los Angeles, CA USA | 10/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is an interactive DVD with more than 100 options to explore questions on 1)Deism vs. Christianity 2)Scientific and Historical Evidence for the Bible 3)Exploration on Absolute vs. Relative Truth 4)Atheism vs. Deism 5) Life after Death, expert profiles on the professors, scientists, philosophers answering the questions, and real life stories of personal spiritual journeys.
If you've ever read the Case for Christ by Lee Strobel (whose profile and life story are on the DVD), this is basically the DVD version of that investigation. In DVD format, this presentation is much more personal (In today's world, reading comprehension seems to be rapidly becoming a lost art). I believe that this format is perfect for discussing the truth about Jesus because the topics for discussion are so diverse that being able to toggle between menus really allows you to arrive at some important conclusions.
But don't be put off by the completeness of the DVD. The DVD was created for those that have little or no knowledge of Jesus.
I gave the DVD 5 stars because of the importance of the information given, the way the DVD is organized, and the way the interplay between the two gives the Truth about Jesus a freshness that is often missing in most other presentations. Despite the quite mundane cover, I think it's 5 stars material"

"This is a fantastic DVD to give out to people, to work through as a small group of friends, or to have as a reference to pull out when tough questions arise. I really enjoyed all the questions about God that are answered in it, and the Jesus movie being on there is an awesome bonus."
The most seen movie on Jesus on planet earth
John Paul | Oklahoma City, USA | 01/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This movie on Jesus Christ has reportedly been seen by more people on the planet than any other. Rightly so, I think.
The producers didn't have a lot of money to spend on costuming or spectacular sets. But that wasn't really the point. They wanted to present the story of Jesus in a straight forward manner, to present the life of Christ in an easy to understand format. They have succeeded.
This isn't a Hollywood presentation of Christ. This movie was made as an evangelistic tool, to show people Who Christ is, and to win them over to the Good Shepherd.
This Jesus sticks to the Gospel, without varying from the text. It helps that the cast is completely made of unknowns, so that previous work by the actors did not interfere with any audience reception of the message.
In this sense, it compares well with the more recent The Gospel of John film. (except the Jesus in that film somehow ended up as a Scot on the Island of LOST!)
You can obtain an inexpensive copy of this movie now for just a coupla bucks. The movie came out in 1980, but has lost none of its' power & appeal. This particular format includes some extras in the way of a presentation of the Gospel by evangelical scholars. There is nothing said by them that I found offensive to me, a Catholic.
A big thumbs up for "JESUS"!
