The Gospel According to Matthew

 (695)7.74 h 16 min1995ALL
The aging apostle Matthew recalls the remarkable events he witnessed as a young man. We share the mystery and the wonder of His birth, His baptism and temptation in the wilderness. We experience the compassion and hope of the Sermon on the Mount. Hear Jesus world-changing message of love and redemption. Word for Word the gospel.

Follows the bible without changes
Verified purchase
Loved that it opened my eyes to new thoughts about Jesus's teaching style possibilities. Always just thought of the style of teaching we see today with a lecture. This allowed me to see how Christ's teaching could have shown His love and joy throughout. His true compassion.
Not taking this as showing us a film of Jesus but we know He loves us and is merciful and that is shown throughout.
Just never thought of this teaching style before.

Great perspective on the Life of Christ! Strongly recommended for the whole family!

Unfortunately many people who call themselves Christians misrepresent the true heart and passion of God's word and who Jesus is. I grew up in a wonderful Christian home but had a somewhat older fashioned view of the wife of Christ. I think a lot of pictures we see are of Jesus wearing a bright white flowing robe and a perfectly trimmed beard. This DVD really brought the Life of Christ alive in my heart and my perspectives were completely enhanced. When reading through the Bible now after watching this, my perspective in my heart have been significantly touched as I have a greater understanding of the love of Christ and really all He has done and who He is in our lives. I sincerely recommend this DVD for all ages. I especially encouraged people to get this for their children at a young age so they can start to really understand the love of Christ in a more personal way. I really love how they presented Jesus in this film. Bruce Marchiano does an amazing job. I encourage you to Summertime look up the behind-the-scenes on when they made this series to hear his heart and passion for what he did to help be in this film. I know whoever is reading this does not know me personally but I want to genuinely ensure you that when you watch this, I believe you are perspective on Jesus will only be enhanced in a very special way.

Best portrayal of Jesus
Verified purchase
This is the best and most appealing portrayal of Jesus I've ever seen!! I cannot recommend it enough!
It's 100% Bible text so it is the Gospel as written according to the Apostle Matthew. It doesn't pick and choose what to include, but has the whole book. In the past I have watched videos about Jesus that make me feel either like He's going to break because he's so fragile, or He's really distant and aloof, or that he's full of wrath and condemnation. This version of Jesus as portrayed by Bruce Marciano shows Him in such a "real" way. You see His love, His joy, His heartache, His righteous anger, His delight in being with people, His teachings, His identity as the Son of God/Messiah, His laughter, His compassion, His miracles. I HIGHLY recommend this video!!

Someone else wrote this. I totally agree and couldn't say it better. YJe movie is so bad that I cou;d warch it for long.
"Jesus as portrayed in this film is a goofy-surfer-dude entry-level televangelist. I don't think it's possible to get further from the historical Jesus than does this film. My guess is that it's pretended intention is a dumbing down of the scriptures to make them palitable to the young and un-educated. This isn't necessary. The scriptures read and dramatized in a straightforward and unembellished manner are suitable for all audiences. In fact, this weird comedy is a pretty good tool with which to push people away from the mission and the message of Christ and into the thrall of the hypocrisy that is big-business religion."

I rgenuinely liked the movie
Verified purchase
I rgenuinely liked the movie, but I didn't like the fact that I had to watch all the advertisements for every movie they have produced every time I played the CD. The "Fast Forward" and "Skip" do not work properly, so I can't take advantage of using it as a Bible Study tool because it takes up so much time to go through all the previews in the beginning! I bought The Gospel of John about the same time, and it is wonderful how well it works. I put in the CD, and it allows me to go immediately to "Play the movie" or "Chapters." I gave this "Matthew" movie 4 stars as I did enjoy it, but the problem I described made my overall opinion of it: Really disappointing!

A definite treasure
Verified purchase
Beautifully depicted landscape, wardrobe, backdrop. Acting is done without too much private other words, gestures/non verbals/inflection seems to be genuinely relayed as closely to the written word as one could do. Matthew is my favorite in the series of the visual Bible so far. I'm looking forward to Mark been released! This is definitely a DVD that I will watch time and time again. It's lovely as a backdrop in my home, even when I'm not able to sit and watch.
