Movie Info

He was a poor carpenter who never traveled further than 50 miles from his home and died at the age of 33, but his teachings changed the world and he's still followed by hundreds of millions of people around the world, 2,000 years after his death. Jesus, originally produced as a television mini-series, offers a glimpse of the human side of the messiah, as well as recounting the story of his life and martyrdom. Jeremy Sisto stars as Jesus, with Jacqueline Bisset as Mary, Armin Mueller-Stahl as Joseph, Gary Oldman as Pontius Pilate, and Debra Messing as Mary Magdalene. The home video release is expanded from the broadcast edition, featuring material that was cut for time purposes.

Jesus is a far from perfect film, but its imperfections are one of its most endearing and challenging qualities.

Audience Reviews for Jesus

I guess the problem I had with this NBC TV movie was that they tried to portray Jesus as a beefcake of some kind. Were they marketing to the young single female Christians? Or the closet gay Christians? Or just any idiot dumb enough to want to watch this?

I think one of the best Jesus movies, Tells about his Life and if you dont read the bible you can get an idea of Jesus here. Very powerful, Beautiful Movie one worth everything to watch

While there are small flights of artistic license and some it's source material is non cannon overall this is still one of the best mini-series I've seen on the subject matter.
