Learn about Christianity: The Nativity Story & Jesus DVDs (video-photo)

posted by bibleprobe(R) Homepage, Mass., 04.05.2007

Want to learn about Christianity, even if you aren't a Christian? Start by watching the 2006 movie "The Nativity Story". Then watch the 1979 movie "Jesus", starring Brian Deacon.

The Nativity Story (2006)

Take Harry Potter, and every other story and take a hike with it. The greatest story ever told has been with us for almost 2000 years, and it will never get any better than this. Only the angelic "ruckus" over Bethlehem that holy night, was missing from this film.

I have 1150 DVD American and Foreign movies in my collection. I just watched "The Nativity Story" and was enthralled with its simple beauty. Like the 1979 movie "Jesus" (with Brian Deacon), I was very happy to see it was not shot on a Hollywood lot, and its principle cast looked the part. They looked Jewish. There was not one cockney or British accent detected. There was no more than a few out of place blue-eyes in the entire movie.

The young girl (Keisha) who played the humble young Jewish girl Mary did an amazing job. Casting was superb all around. The movie did justice to Joseph, as a good, patient, honest, sincere, caring, God-loving man. Also, it did not merely toss aside the arduous 100+ mile trek from Nazareth to Bethlehem either. In this movie, I somehow felt I was an "eye-witness" to the privileged feeling even the struggling donkey who carried the holy mother and blessed Savior must have felt.

I liked how the movie did not skip over the huge dilemma holy Mary must have faced when she had to present herself to her betrothed husband, her family and her village --already with child. And it gave us a good peek into Jewish village life during this period. Also, this excellent movie touched on the tumultuous times God had picked to arrive, in order to offer Himself as a korban (sacrificial lamb); for the lost sheep of Israel.

Who will believe it? The greatest of kings. Born in the humblest of places.... God, born in the flesh!

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder: and his name will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (written: 712 BC - Before Christ)

This is a timeless story, and an excellent movie; I will always cherish. It is among the top in my collection now. Bravo Zulu to all folks involved with it. To Ted Turner's Time-Warner. Thank you... I had tears in my eyes...

Please keep those stupid coming attraction Ads off DVD's such as this. Especially an occult/paranormal type movie...

2006. Choice of Full Screen or Widescreen on same disc. 101 min. PG-some violent content

Jesus (1979)

[image]

This may be the most authentic historic movie telling of Our Lord's story ever on the screen (entirely according to Luke's Gospel). I also found it unique in that not only was it made in the Holy Land, but throughout the film the faces seen are mostly local Jewish and arab. Nothing irks me more to see a telling of our Lord's story while hearing British accents and/or seeing British and American faces.

You can buy this excellent film in VHS or DVD format. I think it would make an excellent evangelical tool. The DVD allows you to choose a sound track. It's in over 540 languages.

Your can order it at Inspirational Films. At their web site, you can also view it online for free with a free Real Time Player (although nothing like watching the VHS or DVD).

Full screen. (5 stars).
