Product Description

PETER JENNINGS REPORTING: THE SEARCH FOR

From the Back Cover

ABC News Peter Jennings Reporting: The Search for Jesus is a journalist's exploration of the historical figure of Jesus. This fascinating documentary provides extensive insights into the 2,000-year-old story of Christianity and the man whose life continues to inspire devotion and debate.

Peter Jennings goes to the Holy Land and retraces the footsteps, and the life, of the man known in his day as Jesus of Nazareth. Jennings searches for clues to who the man was, what we can know about his childhood, his brief adult life and the circumstances of his death.

Customer Reviews

This is a well researched and balanced look into the historical Jesus.
Kerry Cochran
The trouble is, the information is only as accurate as the sources, and they are not, in this series, telling the viewers the facts.
Marika Stone
Her attitude was, "How can you still think the way you do after seeing this show?"

I saw this when it was shown on television. I was enthralled by the fact that it presented the factual history of the life of Jesus the Christ.

I recently purchased it through Amazon.com and viewed it immediately upon recieving the package.

I would like to inform the reader that I am a devout Christian of the Catholic religion who is not afraid to listen to, or read about, nor even see films that contain historical, archaelogical data to support their viewpoints on the life of the one now known to us as Jesus the Christ. All the other previous reviewers cannot deny the facts. All they can do is beg the Bible when it comes to espousing their viewpoints on Christianity. They'll even tell us that we are blasphemers and will rot in hell for not believing in what they believe. But most of them are not even faintly familiar with the actual history of the Bible. Well, I feel sorry for them. Hey, it's the Christian thing to do, is it not?

Anyway, job well done in presenting the FACTS, Mr.Jennings. I await the release on DVD of the episode you recently did on the historical life of Mary, the mother of Jesus the Christ.

ABC did a great job doing true investigative journalism on this one. Very accurate and very interesting! I learned a lot about the background and times that Jesus lived in!

This is a well researched and balanced look into the historical Jesus. Peter Jennings is an excellent host, and one of my favorite news people of all time. He states from the beginning that he can not say whether Jesus was literally the Son of God. That question can only be answered by faith. I'd say that's pretty fair and doesn't take anything away from anyone's religious views.

I watch this DVD every year during Lent, and any other time of the year I want a little pick-me-up for my soul. It is amazingly relevant and thought provoking. And the images of the Holy Land are just great!

Peter Jennings was one of my favorites and this program is up to par. Well-filmed and interesting, but as an amateur bible scholar who leans towards the "radical" side, I would wish the program had been a little more challenging to the traditional teachings and attitudes about Paul of Tarsus. There was some of that, but presented mildly so as to not be "offensive" to anyone, it seems.

This is truly a great documentary. Very well researched, unbiased, and extremely well reported on. For the most part, the fundamentalist will have a problem with it, as I have seen in other reviews of this video that I have read. The theologians and scholars and those that think in theological terms, and follow the Jesus Seminar, will love it. Simple as that.

All I can say is that this was a VERY interesting video that highlights all the findings of the leading researchers trying to prove or disprove the story of Jesus Christ.

I wanted to give this video five stars for one, in order to thwart the religious zealouts who feel by their one-star ratings there are absolutely no redeeming qualities to this report and who hope to discourage others from buying it, and two, to pay tribute to the late Peter Jennings and honor what will now be seen as part of his enduring legacy. He had the curiosity of a child and the doggedness of a pitbull, and I could trust that he pandered to nobody in the search for truth. I watched this show when it was on the air with my aunt who herself died only a month ago; we both learned from it, and I will add this DVD to my collection in memory of both of them.
