Long DescriptionOriginally made for TV in 1977, this in-depth (six hours plus) version of Jesus' life is so thorough that the first hour is devoted solely to the story of his birth. The film doesn't skimp on some of the other landmark events of this famous story either. Director Franco Zeffirelli gives more than 12 minutes screen time each to the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Passages of the Bible are quoted verbatim, the locations have a Palestine-like authenticity, and, aside from some of the principals (Robert Powell as Jesus, Olivia Hussey as Mary, and Stacy Keach as Barabbas), many of the non-Roman characters are actually played by Semitic-looking actors. Zeffirelli diligently provides the sociopolitical background that gave rise to Jesus' following and the crisis in belief it caused for the people of Israel (and one or two Romans). While not graphic by today's standards, some of the scenes--baby boys being ripped from their mothers' arms and slaughtered, nails being driven into Jesus' hands--may disturb young and/or sensitive children. --Kimberly Heinrichs

The site has been updating over the past few months and now we are done with the big upgrade!

You have gotten to see some of the cosmetic changes as we went along. Many of these could be moved to the live production server without causing an outage.

Over the past few days, users have been accessing the site using our backup server while our main server was fully upgraded. It was a long process taking months of preperation and design but all the hard work is done now.

All in all it was a very hectic few months getting everything ready but it is quite a joy to see the improves performance.

We still have some work to do. The backup server has to be upgraded now to match the production server for one thing. We want to add more fields to the database so we can provide more information about products than we could in the past. But this work won't impact the site in an adverse way. We can easily add new fields without any interuption to your access to the site.

We have performed a great deal of testing but if we missed something by chance please contact us and we will get it fixed right away.
