Decent Films Guide by Steven D. Greydanus: "Jesus of Nazareth" (DVD; 1977)
Here, Steven D. Greydanus gives his review of "Jesus of Nazareth" at Decent Films Guide and rates it a solid A. In all, it is a film that many families view near Easter and it is definitely one "for their DVD collection." Greydanus' review of "The Robe" does not come off nearly as well, although "Ben-Hur" is another favorite. I have to agree with his ratings.
I personally think "The Passion of the Christ" is more moving [see also here] (especially on Good Friday with the subtitles off and the dialogue in Aramaic/Latin), but that is not suitable for younger audiences. It is an incredible film, however, and one I have taken to viewing each year.
