Nothing else matches this film
Maybe it's that this film came out when i was a young christian, so it brings back great memories for me, but in my mind it does a better job than any other movie of telling the story of jesus. we usually watch one disc the first night, and finish up the second night. i love the music, the people, and the way the scenes look beautiful and timeless. robert powell as jesus was somehow able to convey the impression that this ordinary-looking man is really god come in the flesh.
