The Greatest Movie Ever Made On Any Subject

I am 49 years old and became a born again christian just over 1 year ago. Having spent considerable time reading the bible, paticuarly the new testament, I decided to view as many possible movies based on Jesus just to see how he was possibly portayed with the liberty Hollywood usually takes. Allowing for the fact that I am a christian, this is possibly the most powerful and engrossing movie I have ever had the pleasure to view. I have viewed this movie 3 times with only short breaks for lunch. It is so easy to virtually just sit back and enjoy this movie in it's entirety. I paticuarly enjoyed the perfomances of Rod Stieger and Anne Bancroft. However, by the end of the movie, Robert Powells magnifecent performance of Jesus, had me forget that I was watching an actor at work but that he was actually Jesus Christ due to his powerful performance. You do not have to be a christian to enjoy this movie because of the quality involved in all facets of movie making here. If you only ever buy 1 movie in your life time, make sure it is Jesus of Nazareth. Who knows, if you take the time to view it with a non christian friend, you just might end up with 1 more person asking The Lord Jesus into his/her life. Thank you Franco.

Jesus of Nazareth (1977) bothered me the first time I saw it, and the second as well. This filmscore was written based on the King James Bible, and its protestant slant - which would be confusing for Catholics if the catch it - is the words Jesus says to Peter "You are Peter, and upon this rock I will biuld WHAT I MUST CALL MY CHURCH". Jesus was not compelled to do anything by anyone. He speaks the words of the Father, and the erliest Gospels (in possession of the Catholic Church, protected throughout time and generations within 40 years of Christ's speaking them) the Synoptics, and I quote the familiar and correct words of Jesus: "Thou art Peter and Upon this rock I will build my Church". There is no equivocating on this. The prior was certainly a Protestant change. As we all know, there is one Christian Church centered in and drawing all grace from the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church presents all seven sacraments as sources of grace (but not all grace). All other Christian sects subsist in the Catholic Church in that they have a part of Christianity - which we should all celebrate. But let's be clear on exact wording and interpretation, which fade once you get into the miasma of 32,000 different Protestant religions.
