Movie Info

Though filmed in Israel using a predominantly Israeli cast, this portrait of the life and times of Christ is not among the best. Much of the dialogue was derived from the Good News Bible.

Critic Reviews for Jesus

All Critics (2)

The evangelical video has an intended widespread audience, but its paint by the numbers presentation falls flat and flops with people outside the mainstream.
