Editorial Reviews

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.

Product Description

While travelling throughout the Holy Land, Jennings retraces the steps of Jesus of Nazareth and presents information about Jesus' childhood, his adult life and the circumstances of his death. 89 min. Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital stereo, Spanish Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English.

4.0 out of 5 stars Faithful to Factual Data July 29, 2004
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Documentaries! March 3, 2011
Format:DVD
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Be Duped! September 25, 2009
By AMAZED
Format:DVD
Unfortunately, Peter Jennings who I really still like, was duped by so called "Bible scholars" called the "Jesus Seminar". Sounds good, but underneath it all, this video promoted their biased belief that the historical Jesus and the Biblical Jesus were different. Rather than being duped as Mr.Jennings was by both titles, prestige, and the rather seemingly innocent sounding name of this group--"Jesus Seminar" your money would be better spent in the name of "a journalistic investigation" by viewing the DVD, "A Case For Christ" by Lee Strobel who himself was a Chicago Tribune reporter and self-proclaimed atheist. In the "Case For Christ" real "students" of the Bible are interviewed and you can make up your own mind about the matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting! March 28, 2011

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part of a Great Legacy August 10, 2005
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD review April 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent guide to the life of Paul from a more objective point of view. It respects and takes into account the Biblical source, historical facts and cultural facts. I found it enlightening as well as it enhanced my understanding of Paul and his teachings.
