 Our Description


Beginning before the Nativity and extending through the Crucifixion and Resurrection, Jesus of Nazareth brings to life all the majesty and sweeping drama of the life of Jesus (portrayed here by Robert Powell) as told in the Gospels. A star-studded international cast, featuring Michael York, Sir Laurence Olivier, James Earl Jones, Anne Bancroft, Olivia Hussey, Rod Steiger and Anthony Quinn, adds depth and humanity to the roles of the saints, sinners and ordinary people who walked in the footsteps of the Lord. The film provides the setting and background for the birth, childhood, baptism, teaching and many miracles of the Messiah, culminating in the Divine Resurrection. Directed by Oscar nominee Franco Zeffirelli and acclaimed by critics and religious leaders worldwide, Jesus of Nazareth tells the greatest of all stories with tremendous emotion and splendor.

This item received 5 stars overall. The greatest verison of the greatest story ever told.

Originally made for TV in 1977, Jesus of Nazareth is an in-depth version of Jesus' life that begins before the Nativity and extends through the Crucifixion and Resurrection. It features an all-star cast that includes Robert Powell, Michael York,  Sir Laurence Olivier James Earl Jones, Anne Bancroft, Olivia Hussey, Rod Steiger, and Anthony Quinn. The movie is over six hours long and very in-depth, in fact, the first hour is devoted to the birth of Jesus. There are very few landmark events of this most famous story left out by Director Franco Zeffirelli. Zeffirelli provides plenty of background on the sociopolitical background that gave rise to Jesus' following and the problems belief in him caused for the people of Israel.
Robert Powell gives a stellar performance as Jesus. He says so much with his lake-blue eyes without having to say anything. He lo Full Review...
