Robert Powell's portrayal of Jesus was exquisite, I've said Powell looks more like Jesus than Jesus did. The actor looks just like Jesus as depicted on many old paintings, maybe a bit too fragile since according to a study of the Shroud of Turin Jesus was probably 1. Because of Your inexhaustible Divine Mercy, we are always assured of a warm welcome upon our return to our Eternal Home to You. We are always grateful that You continue to provide for our daily temporal and spiritual needs and that You are always compassionately forgiving us for our many faults and sins. You love to hate them.
Either way, this modest-yet-impressive production is made with respect and quality. Maria is now also pregnant and will get God's child. The annunciation just shows Mary staring at a window with light streaming through it, and occasionally Mary would say her lines. Now as a video viewer, you have two choices. However, the calling of the Apostles is pretty much fabricated.
The best and probably only miniseries I've ever seen; you almost think you're actually watching the life of Jesus in real times! Perhaps it is this reality that allows people to gravitate toward a love for the film and a commitment to making the viewing of it each year and family tradition. Which also brings up the question of length - some shorter films about Jesus work, namely Passion of the Christ, but this is only because they confine themselves to one aspect of our Lord's life. No matter if your a Christian or not. This is the ultimate and to this day the most powerful,realistic and best version of Jesus and His life on earth. After all, Moses performed miracles, too.
Minutes later, oddly, Zeffirelli botches the annunciation to Joseph, which fails in every way the Annunciation to Mary works. James Farentino does an excellent job in his portrayal of Simon Peter. No other depiction of Christ on screen even comes close to the performance given by Robert Powell in this made for tv miniseries directed by Franco Zeffirelli. Aside from that,the cast were also stellar in their performances. I would recommend this to a friend Jesus of Nazareth is a very good depiction of Jesus. Contrast this with Powell in Jesus of Nazareth, who said that playing our Lord has no effect on him and he even went on to play a sodomite immediately after filming Jesus of Nazareth.
Director Roger Young is no stranger to Biblical epics with forceful personalities Moses, Joseph, eg. Jesus curses those who would like to deny Heaven from common people and those who are twisting religion to serve their own purposes. During the beating of our Lord, we see his head getting struck but the baton clearly missing the actor by five inches, yet Jesus flinching as if he was getting punched. I would recommend this to a friend It had been ages since I had seen this 1977 Franco Zeffirelli mini-series and wondered how it held up. Разпъването, смъртта и възкресението са показани по внушителен начин.
Robert Powell gives his character the kind of personality that gives his role realism and purity at the same time,like no one else. I would still like to see a Jesus that matches the biblical description: - he was not handsome according to the prophet Isaiah. But is it not confusing to the other people? He plays Jesus so well that you feel it is really Jesus at times. While he passes on accuracy for effect with Jesus, the apostles, it must be noted, all resemble the Hebrew peasants, publicans, and sinners they most certainly were. Full of remorse, he later gives the silver back to the priests Matthew 27:3-5. One of my favorite scenes which I feel was done very effectively was when we first see Jesus. This is what I mean by low budget.
Our star rating 0-5 : 5 Jesus reads from the Isaiah scroll at his hometown synagogue. Go, My children and do not fear. At the scene where Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead, the camera pans out and you see the countryside and Jesus from the back with his arms out and the tomb. The bulk of the show consists of shots of Jesus and the Apostles walking, with voice-overs of von Sydow giving various sayings of Jesus. Please help if you can. Jesus of Nazareth Jesus of Nazareth is a 1977 English Film stars Robert Powell , Franco Zeffirelli , Anthony Burgess , Suso Cecchi d'Amico , Franco Zeffirelli , Vincenzo Labella , Bernard J. If that is the case, it did not upset me enough that I recall it these years later.
Either way, it's worth one complete viewing which guarantees not only five star entertainment but an all star casts entertainment. I would love to read about the difficulties and rewards, the technical obstacles overcome to get this film made. Jesus himself is barely glimpsed in a weirdly muted post-Resurrection appearance that seems to have been assembled from scraps after time or money ran out. The rest of the film was excellent with every big name actor putting in a fabulous performance. Whether or not Jesus was who He claimed to be, the Savior of the world, one thing is certain: He is alive in the hearts of millions, and this film helped capture the spirit of the Christian beliefs, making Jesus not so much an icon but a living, breathing Son of God, perfect in every way, Who loved us enough to die for our sins. No, I would not recommend this to a friend This mini series was originally broadcast in 1977. Some of these deviations have a basis in time-honoured, extra-Biblical traditions e.
Has science disproved the miracles associated with Jesus Christ? I insist that my two teenage children and husband watch it with me every Easter. One of my favorite scene is where Jesus speaks to the roman soldier. I thought it an excellent movie then, but now since I recently became a Xian it has become my favorite of any movie on the life of Christ. It starts off when Jesus is born and goes through most of his teachings and ends in the Ressurection. For me and My family, friends, and co workers. I often rent it, and have it out from my video store now, to view for the umpteenth time.
