 The Visual Matthew

This film has made a huge impact on many peoples' vision of the personality and character of Jesus. This film is word for word to the NIV translation of the Gospel of Matthew, and shows the chapters and verses in the lower corner of the screen.

There are no added stories, characters, or words; but all of the emotions are expressed to their fullest which gives you a great understanding and meaning behind what is being said. It identifies a very approachable and caring Jesus figure. The character of Jesus that is portrayed in this film, very closely matches the Gospel.

This DVD will make an impact on your vision of the personality and character of Jesus. The Jesus of this DVD is amazing. He's full of life and happy. The Visual Bible seems to better portray Jesus as the scriptures do. By the end of this DVD you see the bond between Jesus and the apostles.

The Passion of the Christ

A depiction of the last twelve hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth, on the day of his crucifixion in Jerusalem. The film opens in the Garden of Olives (Gethsemane) where Jesus has gone to pray after the Last Supper. Betrayed by Judas Iscariot, Jesus is arrested and taken back within the city walls of Jerusalem. There, the leaders of the Pharisees confront him with accusations of blasphemy; subsequently, his trial results with the leaders condemning him to his death.

Jesus is handed over to the Roman soldiers and is brutally flagellated. Bloody and unrecognisable, he is brought back before Pilate who, once again, presents him to the thirsty crowd - assuming they will see that Jesus has been punished enough. The crowd, however, is not satisfied. Pilate washes his hands of the entire dilemma, ordering his men to do as the crowd wishes.

Whipped and weakened, Jesus is presented with the cross and is ordered to carry it through the streets of Jerusalem, all the way up to Golgotha. There, more corporal cruelty takes place as Jesus is nailed to the cross - suffering, he hangs there, left to die. At the moment of his death, nature itself overturns.

The Gospel of John

The Book of John is treated like the finely wrought piece of literature it is.

The role of Jesus in world history deserves consideration in the light of the extreme religious fanatacism rampant today from the so-called People of the Book. Who was this person who claimed to be Son of God and Son of man? Factually, the apostle John details only a few points in the life of the Man who conquered death. But John says "Believe in the resurrection and you have eternal life now."

Several times, in the film, Jesus asks, "Why do you hate me?" That question reverberates in today's headlines. Surrender to a remarkable film that will haunt you long after final fade out.
 

 The Jesus Film

This is the Bible's depiction of the life of Jesus, not Hollywood's. This film, conceived by Bill Bright, was made in the late 1970's as a desire to spread the Gospel message to the world.

Now translated into over 800 languages and seen by over 3.5 billion people, it remains the best feature film about the life of Christ. The account is taken entirely from the Gospel of Luke and each scene was carefully reviewed by Biblical scholars for authenticity.

At the end of the film is a short message on God's plan of Salvation and tells the viewer how to be saved. The only drawback is that it lacks any mention of Hell which Jesus said will be the destination of all people who reject him. But the film is still produced very well and is a must see for every person in the world. This DVD version includes dubbing in 8 languages and subtitles in 5 languages.
