    Living Bible on DVD

    I was in discount bookshop The Works over the weekend, and noticed that they are selling a three DVD set called the Living Bible, purporting to be a multi-region version of a series of made for TV films about Jesus from 1952. I'm trying to find out more information about them at the moment. I think this may be the series I discussed way back when I first started blogging starring Nelson Leigh, but I can't be sure and there isn't much information provided on the packaging. I'm hoping that Great Music Co. who are releasing this will be able to help me with clearing this one up so watch this space.

      As far as I can tell, what you found is one of very many repackaged editions of "The Living Christ" series. Most reissues these days have the title "The Living Bible" on the front, but when you play the DVD, the original title card says "The Living Christ." Shop around for this title before buying. You can get it very inexpensively.

      Thanks for your post. In this case though it does appear to be the Jesus part of the Living Bible Series. I have (in another and cheap format) the Living Christ Series.

      I have seen the information of Kevin to
      my self. I bought a DVD titled Jesus the
      healer and when I play it - it's the
      Living Christ series.

      I watched The Upper room of Living Bible
      series and I found a great scene - Jesus
      is washing disciples's feet.This scene
      is very rare.I read about it in Jesus
      at the movies. It is said that this
      scene is only in Gibson's Passion, From
      the manger to the cross and Gospel of
      John.Now it's also here.
