Jeremy Sisto stars as the son of God in this 174 minute production that vividly explores the life and mission of Jesus of Nazareth. Epic in scale and featuring a strong supporting cast (Gary Oldman, Debra Messing, Jacqueline Bisset, Luca Zingaretti, Jeroen Krabbé, Armin Mueller-Stahl and David O’Hara), this drama traces Jesus’ journey from simple carpenter to spiritual leader, philosopher and martyr–focusing on his compassionate teachings as well as his relationships with Mary, Joseph, his apostles, persecutors, and the heavenly father.

If you have problems thinking of Jesus as a fun, sweet, wonderful guy to be with; if you object to portrayals of him weeping, laughing and horsing around with his friends; if the nature of his death is more helpful to your faith than the way He lived His life... this movie isn't for you. What the much touted "Passion of the Christ" does not address is who Christ was as a person. If he wasn't fully human as well as being fully divine, his sacrifice would have meant less. Jesus is portrayed in this movie as the kind of guy you'd want to hang around with, wouldn't be ashamed of talking to about your day over a glass of wine and would love as long as you draw breath. At the end of the day, the salient question still remains: "Who do you say He is? Does it come from your heart or just from your mind? Do you do the right thing because you want to get to heaven, or because you love Him?" If nothing else, this movie should clarify those questions.

Before I was blessed to see this miniseries on TV, I was by no means a good Christian! I only went to church for weddings and funerals, and only thought of God when I wanted something material. After watching this movie, I was a born again Christian. Jeremy Sisto, who was one of my favorite actors to begin with, did such a wonderful job acting, I felt I was actually witnessing Jesus in action. The script was presented in modern language ( not the King James "thou" and "thine" mumbo jumbo) I gained so much understanding as to what Jesus really said and did, and the amazing people he touched. The next Sunday, which was Easter, I went to my first church service in years, and have been a devout follower of Christ since. I honestly believe that had I not seen this movie, I would be stuck as a non-believer, and I would be missing out on all of the wonderful things Christ has taught me. I recommend this movie for anyone who has doubts about Christ and the messages he brought to this world. Amen~!

Every Jesus movie or miniseries has its strengths. "Jesus of Nazareth" is the most historically and scripturally accurate. Jesus Christ Superstar does the best job of seeing the parallels between Christ's time and our own (pretty good music too, I hear.) "The Passion of the Christ," as we all now know, is the bloodiest.

"Jesus," the miniseries, though unrealized in significant ways, attempts to address aspects of the Christ story that others have not and could not. First, the movie focuses on the relationship between Jesus and his earthly father Joseph, played lovingly by Armin Mueller-Stahl. Jesus' love for Joseph is palpably tender and reciprocal. Joseph is the old master; Jesus the eager apprentice, desperate to please and bereft when the old man dies. There is also a romantic sub-plot between Jesus and Martha, in this film depicted as his distant city cousin. Nothing comes of the relationship, but it makes you wonder the degree to which Jesus, fully human even by conservative theological principles, struggled with a desire to be a normal man of his time, learning a trade, getting married, and having a family.

Jesus, played adequately by Jeremy Sisto, is also shown as quite playful. He teases his disciples, splashing water in their faces and pulling their scarves. This is fun, though it doesn't seem to move the story anywhere. The scenes of Jesus teaching also attempt to break new ground. Rather than merely stringing together a long list of inscrutable sayings, gospel style, "Jesus" shows the Master interacting with the crowd, even getting a good-natured heckling.

"Jesus" fails to show why anyone would find this man threatening. Yet I was fascinated by the film's attempts to show Jesus as a person with an interesting personality of his own.

This movie is one of the most interesting depictions of Jesus on film. It is not the most accurate but there are several scenes that give us food for thought.

The writers tried to emphasize more the human side of Jesus -- Jesus enjoyed life, laughed, danced, joked around with his disciples, and yet was the Son of God and Savior.

Some interesting (but not so biblically accurate) scenes:

1) Jesus resurrected sparrows during his childhood. This is taken from the Gospel of Thomas (a non-canonical book), and not from Scripture.

2) This is one of the few Jesus movies, where it is inferred that he was attracted to women and vice-versa. Mary of Bethany is portrayed as being attracted to Jesus but Jesus has to reject her marriage proposal because of his higher mission as the Messiah. Later, Jesus has a heart to heart talk with Mary Magdalene; there is noticeable chemistry between the two of them.

3) The Temptation scene: Satan appears as a seductive woman in a red dress and then morphs into a businessman in an Armani suit (played by Jeroen Krabbe). Satan tempts Jesus to let go of his divinity and to submit to raw power. Jesus seems to be unsure of himself and his divinity.

4) Jesus is depicted as dancing in the celebrations at Cana and at other parties. He splashes water on the disciples, skips rocks across the water, and plays tag with the disciples (!) Then he gets serious and performs miracles or launches into a brief sermonette (Jesus' teachings are very, very brief in this movie).

5) Jesus' dependency on Mary, his earthly mother. Mary needs to reassure Jesus when he is down and suffers from self-doubt.

6) Jeremy Sisto is an interesting choice to play Jesus.

If you watch this you will roast in hell!
How can you post such a statement if, indeed, you are a Believer? Who are you to condemn? Who are you to throw the first stone? Who are you to judge? Who are you that has taken over the Throne of the Living God and of His Son? Who are you that by the implication of your total lack of love, by... Read More
