    Jesus, the Christ Out on DVD

    I blogged a while back about Bruce Marchiano's plans to make a word for word version of the Gospel of John using the NIV translation. I added myself to their mailing list and have been following developments reasonably closely.So I was intrigued to get an email from them the other day about a DVD release for a film called Jesus, the Christ.

    I recently bought the four-hour word for word Visual Bible version of the Gospel of Matthew in which Marchiano played Jesus. Jesus, the Christ essentially is version of this footage cut down to 90 minutes, and, I presume, arrange the remaining material so that the finished product is more of a movie and less of a, well, visual Bible.

    The DVD is available to buy for $20, and you can watch a fairly lengthy trailer at Marchiano's website. There are also a selection of other media there, relating both to the original production and this new film. The 2 DVD set includes:
    * The film, Jesus the Christ
    * The Larnelle Harris Music Video, Man of Sorrows
    * The Kathy Trocolli Topical Bible Teaching, The Healing Touch of Jesus
    * Kathy Trocolli Music Video, When I Look at You
    * The Evangelical Video Tract, Who is Jesus
    * Movie Night Outreach Media Kit
    Proceeds will go towards funding The Gospel of John
