Movie Reviews

Jesus as you've never seen Him before - Fantastic!
LynetteB | NSW, Australia | 04/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I admit to being a bit uncomfortable when I first started watching this DVD. Jesus was a bit too happy, and a bit too friendly - and he was always smiling - captivatingly smiling! I kept watching and soon came to see that Jesus was full of compassion, full of love and full of joy! He wanted everyone to see that He was the Messiah, the one they had been waiting for. Life was a buzz for him yet all the time the script was faithful to the NIV - no words added, but plenty of 'body language' and it was always positive - love, compassion and joy.

Bruce Marchiano as Jesus is just brilliant, speaking with his eyes as well as the NIV text to show a very human yet Godly Jesus and the narration by Richard Kiley as the aged "Matthew" recounting parts of the story adds a real depth and quality to the production. It is the type of film you want to watch again and again, and in the end, you'll also have memorised lots of the gospel of Matthew as a bonus. It is a truely captivating film.

I highly recommend this DVD for every person. It will be mind changing for most Christians who've may never have really thought of Jesus as a flesh and blood person with joy, sadness, patience and frustration in His personality. These characteristics all come out, and are totally honouring to God. For non-Christians it will be a very fresh and relevant look at the historic person called Jesus of Nazareth and you won't be able to deny that Jesus is the Son of God, in human flesh. There is a real warmth about this film and it comes across as real life, with a reality that only a spiritually blind person could deny.

You will not be sorry you bought this DVD and it will broaden your knowledge of Jesus' life and ministry and will bring you closer to God. It can't help to, it is truly blessed by Him. Bless you in His Name."
Wonderful DVDs!!

"This is part of a 3-pack that includes Matthew Parts One & Two, and Falling Fire. The Matthew DVDs take you entirely through the Book of Matthew according to the New International Version of the Bible. They include many of Jesus' miracles, his life, death and ascension from Matthew's perspective. They are absolutely inspiring, heart-rending, exciting, informative to the unbeliever, and confirming to the Christian!

The Falling Fire DVD includes Luke's travels and the beginning of the early church recorded in the Book of Acts in the Bible. These portrayals of Luke and Paul are true to the Word, and will lead you to marvel at the way God worked in their lives to build His Church. A really great set of DVDs, and well worth the price!

Impressive Biblical Story

"Enjoyed this dvd as the dialogue was true to the Bible. Also the film's characters were so like I thought they would be when reading the New Testament."
