I have seen a lot of videos about the life of Jesus. Close to Jesus is the best I have seen for helping the viewer understand the relationships Jesus probably had with 4 for his followers. The quality is excellent and the acting is believable.

Another would be a DVD titled Who Was Jesus. That is an excellent DVD for helping the viewer understand how people lived during the Jesus' time. It also deals with the politics of the time.

My third pick would be a DVD titled Visual Bible: Matthew. That video seemed to focus more on scripture from the book of Matthew. It is the story of Jesus as told by Matthew. Recreation of the sermon on the mount is very good.

I had viewed & taped off air, the program on Mary Magdelene, with commercials. I didn't even know there were more programs in, what I guess is best called a "mini-series". The title characters in this series are barely given notice in scripture. With Mary Magdelene, her identity has become s much legand, that we really don't know her. She has been a mixture of various unnamed women in the Gospels - the woman whoentered a house where Jesus was having supper & washed her feet with her tears & dried them with her hair, the woman posessed by demons, thewoman caught in adultry. Could Mary Magdelene have really been all of these women "rolled into one"? Yes, it's possible, but unlikely. In this series, she is portrayed as a wife, whose womb was barren. Her husband divorced her for this, plus, he had fallen in love with another woman. She enters a life with a Roman officer, and then becomes a servant of Herodian, the second wife of Herod. Then, she meets Jesus & becomes one of his followers.

Joseph of Nazareth, is of course, Jesus' earthly father, who with Mary raised Jesus. In scripture, he isn't even quoted as saying even one word. We know he betrothed Mary. Mary rceived the annoncement that she was going to give birth to the Messiah. She traveled and visied a relative, Elizabeth & stayed with her until after Elizabeth's baby was born. When she returned to Nazareth, she was definately pregnant. Joseph knew he was not the father of the baby in her womb. He was going to divorce her, until an angel spoke to him. Then, he took Mary & brought her to his home. She was ready to give birth & they went to Bethlehem to register for the census. She gave birth there. The magi visited Herod to ask where the King of the Jews was.

I just received this DVD set a week ago and have not stopped watching it. Biblical scriptures and stories have been brought so much closer to home. A few acting scenes leave much to be desired but overall I think that this set is very good - but what I want to know is the name of the actor that plays Jesus in the stories of Mary, Judas, and Thomas. I think he does a phenomenal job and really the only thing that I don't like about this set is that the cast is not included in the credits. IF ANYONE KNOWS WHO PLAYED JESUS THEN PLEASE LEAVE A POSTING HERE. Thank you so much.

I would buy this DVD as a gift to help heal anyone who has experienced abuse, betrayal, adoption parenting and deception experiences. This is a jewel DVD to give because I was seeking to learn about Judas having watched the DVD on Barabas life. I was surprised there were four DVD's in the case that includes Mary of Magdala, Joseph, Judas and Thomas. This was a treat to watch and enjoy as the order for Slightly Bad Girls in the Bible Series DVD is a lecture type which narrates Sarah and other women who mistreated others in the Bible. I returned the Bad Girls series because this DVD had the movie version and best describes the sorrow and challenges of Mary of Magdala, Joseph father of Jesus, Thomas as well as Judas. My package arrived with a defective smashed DVD case that could hold the 4 DvD's. If this happens to you the seller cannot send you a Quad DVD case you can buy one for out of your own expense here at amazon. Type clear quad DVD. Otherwise the seller cannot replace and control the manner of shipping and exchanging a case even with best efforts because the cost of the product is less than the value of the brand new case. Otherwise this is a keeper and must have in a Bible DVD collectors wish list. I recommend to anyone I hope you get your case un smashed! Now you know why I had to pay extra for a new case because this DVD is a treasure to keep and share. No Deceptions it's that good to keep.

I only watched the first episode on the 4 disc--Mary Magdalene. I know that I am re-studying the bible and as I was watching thie movie, it made logical sense why Mary slept with many men...when Jesus initially was there when she was about to be stoned for her adultery and later at the well, said you are married to 5 husbands (meaning intimate contact with men)...but this movie did not illustrate or show that and surprisingly showed her with the anointed oil, kissing his feet and washing it with her tears and wiping it with her hair...thought this was another woman with no name in the Bible...however it was well-written and brought tears to my eyes since women are mistreated and sometimes viewed as a prize or piece of meat as they explained in the movie (a man's possession and not to ever love them)....I enjoyed the acting (astounding and superb) and want to buy it and watch the other versions from the Public Library!
