Unlike other movies about Jesus Christ, Robert Powell's portrayal of Jesus, starting from his dialogue "Woe to you, scribes and the Pharisees" till the dialogue "For I and my Father are one and the same" is very close to the personality of Jesus in the New Testament. New Testament (Matthew 7:28-7:29) points out that the crowds were amazed by the teachings of Jesus Christ, because He taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law. See more »

In the original television broadcast, as part of the Last Supper, a number of Jewish families, including that of the high priest, were shown celebrating Passover with Seder meals. This was done to emphasize that Jesus and his disciples were typical Jews, part of the Jewish religion, and to show that everyone else was celebrating too. This was even commented upon in a review in either Time or Newsweek magazine See more »
It has been 27 years since this TV mini-series aired. I watch it around Easter time every year. Robert Powell has played the best Jesus to date. Can you imagine how more awesome "The Passion" would have been if Powell played the part again. This movie was very believable.Does anyone know whatever became of Robert Powell? The other cast members played their parts well. I also noticed the good messages that were given that if more people watched it that they would get a better understanding of what God wants us to do. As a Roman Catholic I found this movie to be worth other Catholics to see. It also enhanced my faith since the first time I saw it at 13 years old.
