Its because I LOVE this portrayal of Jesus that I feel its impt to inform that there are major scenes that are being cut from the Blu Ray versions that shouldnt be missed.
Missing major parts of the original series including but not limited to:
- Judas lamentations of whether to turn in Jesus
Major scenes from the last supper including:
- Jesus telling Peter he will deny him 3 times
- Jesus telling Judas that he will betray Jesus and to "go and do what he needs to do"
These are not superfluous events but all critical to the story telling.
I have only found the complete edition only on Artisan's DVD catalog number 10166 seen here Jesus of Nazareth (Complete, Unedited 2 Disc Version)
The scenes are cut from this 40th Anniversary Edition in both DVD and Blu Ray by Shout studio as well as RTC's Spanish Blu ray version BD-0489.
The DVD series is 382 minutes so I thought I should just try to just find a blu ray version that was also 382 minutes, the problem is that they are mislabeled and all say that, so you unfortunately cant use running length to determine completeness of content. For a definitive explanation of the versions, search the web using this word "jcofnazareth" then look under the tab titled "VHS/DVD/BluRay Differences".
This is the Spanish-dubbed version with the classical Latin American dubbing from the seventies. Beautiful work! This version also includes the original English soundtrack, so it can also be watched in English with Spanish subtitles or no subtitles at all. Although there must be other versions with better video quality or hi-fi sound, this is a must if you want to watch this wonderful recreation of Christ's life and passion in Spanish. It must be played on a computer with no DVD Zone restriction, or in a Multi-Zone DVD player (Zone 1 and Zone 4). Very recommended!
