I found the "Last Days of Jesus" to be interesting and informative. Many of the things brought up, such as the date of Palm Sunday, the real amount of time Jesus spent in Nazareth, and the political undercurrents of the times make perfect sense. Certainly as possible as the record of the Bible which was written decades after his life and is clearly a book of propaganda to promote christianity. This should be interesting to people with open minds. One doesn't have to accept everything offered in the video but overall a very interesting possibility. I apologize if I have offended any of the ardent christians in your other reviews. They obviously accept the Bible as 100% absolute truth. Perhaps it would be better if they would not view anything that disagrees with their rigid beliefs

I found the film wonderful on a historical level. Too bad that Christology has been discounted from the film. With that said, the film made Jesus appear to be trying to find his way, or to make things work doesn't fit well with me as a believer in the Christ, Jesus. By discounting the parts about Jesus and focusing on the two other main characters (Herod Antipas and Lucius Aelius Sejanus) I found value in the film albeit not in spirituality. In the end, I found the film to be of worth if only viewed in context of history.

    Comments about PBS Last Days of Jesus DVD:

    The production concentrates on questioning motives, timelines and the most salient issue of whether Jesus was truly the Messiah. None of the presenters seemed to be interested in communicating facts but merely supporting the hidden agenda.
    A committed Christian believer will not find the film helpful.

    Comments about PBS Last Days of Jesus DVD:

    Unlike the several other revues I thought that the hypothesis as put forth in The Last Days of Jesus answers a lot of the questions that a critical reading of the story of Jesus's last days. It is a two hour long program that I believe was well produced.
    I highly recommend this DVD. It is not the usual Easter story but a breath of fresh air .
    Thank you PBS

    Non-naive presentation

    By Thomas Didymus

    Comments about PBS Last Days of Jesus DVD:

    The portrayal was thought-provoking and very plausible. I rejoice that the followers found a way to keep the dream alive. Quoting Raimon Panikkar, "The interpretation of every text requires the knowledge of its context and the intuition of its pretext." This presentation provides both, and it enhanced my interpretation of the gospel and non-gospel historical sources. Well done.
