Based on the Gospel of Luke, the film starts with the Birth of Christ and follows His journey through pivotal events such as known miracles (healing, sharing of the fish), 40 days in the desert, conflict with government/religious leaders, and the betrayal by Judas. Inevitably, the story leads to the Crucifixion, its impact on His disciples, and His miraculous rise thereafter.

“What did Jesus really look like?”

Not a bad film on the Life of Christ. The Passion scenes were definitely subdued.

This movie has been responsible for over a million conversions, and the story never gets old. Based entirely on the Gospel of Luke, The Jesus Film is a definite assurance of the identity of Jesus. A great family film, too.

This is a 1979 drama co-directed by Australian Peter Sykes, Britons John Heyman and John Krisch and filmed in Israel.
It is said that, as of 2003, the film had been seen over 4.7 billion people in 236 nations.
I didn't know that there are so many nations on the Globe.
The film has been translated into more languages than any film in history---amazingly, more than 800 languages.
This DVD version has 8 languages: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese and Korean.
According to The New York Times, this film is likely the most-watched motion picture of all time.
The Los Angeles Times called it a "...dull Sunday-School treatment of the life of Christ, meticulously but unimaginatively culled from Luke 3-24."
Although the directors seem to have paid a meticulous attention to historical authenticity, all the miracles look quite unbelievable to the scientific mind.
Well, you can judge it by yourself.
