The Visual Bible: Matthew

 

Film Description:

Matthew 15:1 – 28:20 – The year is about 62 A.D., and the aging apostle Matthew recalls the remarkable events he witnessed as a young man. As his story unfolds, the centuries melt away and we are intimately involved in the life of Jesus. We share the mystery and the wonder of His birth. We witness His baptism and temptation in the wilderness.

We experience the compassion and hope of the Sermon on the Mount. Walk with Jesus through Galilee as He calls His disciples, performs the first miracles, and begins teaching His world-changing message of love and redemption. This deeply moving presentation of the most beloved of stories stars luminary Richard Kiley as Matthew and the passionate Bruce Marchiano as Jesus. This unique word-for-word presentation in the NIV brings to the screen a divine yet warmly human Jesus. “I’ve been a Christian for 25 years, but I never knew who Jesus truly was until I saw Matthew… He loves me!”

In 1993, Christian filmmakers set out to make a Jesus film which would be Word-for-Word the Gospel. What emerged was a presentation of Jesus in exultant joy (Hebrews 1:9) and deep passion – a Man who was God on His knees in the sand, weeping over people’s pain, reaching His healing hand into their broken lives; a Man who restrained all the power of the universe and allowed His blood to fall to the ground…for you.

Come experience Jesus as never before! Word for Word Matthew (NIV), this film which has seen countless testimonies like that above is as arresting on this 15th anniversary of its USA release as then. Come experience God’s Word afresh, and His promises for you anew. Come, experience Jesus!

“The concept was a Jesus film that is Word-for-Word the Gospel.  Director, Regardt van den Bergh, cast Bruce as Jesus and together the two men made a film that brings Jesus “to life” in a depth of love that is widely acclaimed as unmatched by any other.”

    I would definitely recommend this video to anyone wishing to enrich his or her spiritual life. to me my family and the feedback i got from many i have given this movie we all agree that this is the perfect picture of the Jesus of the Bible we ever saw. It is beautifully filmed and it is great for group study, it Really brings scripture alive and is helpful to understand it better, The Jesus of this video is the best picture of Jesus you can ever get, he is full of life, unconditional love, happiness, compassion, sympathy, and mercy and the same time firm, strong and with authority, not a cold, distant one like i have seen in other videos. This Jesus goes about hugging and loving people, it is so real that it Makes one have a feeling of being there with Jesus. Bruce Marchiano’s portrayal of Jesus was so deep, so amazing, I wish I could thank him personally. after watching, it changed my perception of God and it deepened my relationship with God as well .I love this video so much that i purchased many of this DVD, to give it away to family and friends. if you are looking for more then reenactments that only gives you some of the scriptures. Then the Visual Bible is for you. This entire four hour video is word-for-word from the NIV. You can even follow along with the verses because they are placed at the bottom of the screen. this is my favorite video to study the bible, no comparison. To be even better I have been praying to see this picture of Jesus word by word with 21 century type sound and special effects, so people can do bible study or to play on TV as a mini series. I wish i could rate it higher than 5 stars. I also recommend the visual bible act of the apostles and the gospel of john
