"Jesus of Nazareth"

In 1977 when this movie came on tv and played over several nights, God's Word being played out like this saved my life. God's Word, Jesus, the Living Word, continues to save my life. YHVH bless everyone who loves Yahshua and spread's God's Word which saves alive the lost.

The scripture Jesus was teaching, even while He was nailed to the cross was Psalm 22 which was written a thousand years approximately before Jesus' birth, yet describes the events that were happening RIGHT THEN as He was on the cross.
Psalm 22
1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Eli, Eli, lama schabathani)
Why art Thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but Thou hearest not;

3 But Thou art holy.
O Thou That inhabitest the praises of Israel.

4 Our fathers trusted in Thee:
They trusted and Thou didst deliver them.

5 They cried unto Thee, and were delievered:
They trusted in Thee, and were not confounded.

6 But I am a worm, and no man;
A reproach of men, and despised of the People.

7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn:
They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

8 "He trusted on the Lord that He would deliver him:
Let Him deliver him, seeing He delighted in him."

9 But Thou art he That took me out of the womb:
Thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.

10 I was cast upon Thee from the womb:
Thou art my God from my mother's belly,

11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near;
For there is none to help.

12 Many bulls have compassed me:
Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

13 They gaped upon me with their mouths,
As a ravening and roaring lion.

14 I am poured out like water,
And all my bones are out of joint;
My heart is like wax;

15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd;
And my tongue cleaveth to my jaws;
And Thou hast brought me into the dust of death

16 For dogs have compassed me;
The assembly of the wicked have inclosed me:
They pierced my hands and my feet.

17 I may tell all my bones;
They look and stare upon me,

18 They part my garments amng them,
And cast lots upon my vesture.

19 But be not Thou far from me, O Lord:
O my strength, haste thee to help me.

20 Deliver my soul from the sword;
My darling from the power of the dog.

21 Save me from the lion's mouth:
For Thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

22 I will declare Thy Name unto my brethren;
In the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee.

23 Ye that fear the Lord, praise Him;
All ye the seed of Jaco, glorify Him;
And fear Him, all ye the seed of Israel.

24 For He hath not despised nor abhorred
the affliction of the afflicted;
Neither hath He hid His face from him;
But when he cried unto Him, He heard.

25 My praise shall be of Thee in the great
I will pay my vows before them that fear Him.

26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied:
They shall praise the Lord that seek Him:

27 All the ends of the world shall remem-
ber and turn unto the Lord:
And all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before Thee.

28 For the kingdom is the Lord's:
And He is the Governor among the nations

29 All they that be fat upon earth shall
eat and worship:
All they that go down to the dust shall bow before Him:

30 A seed shall serve Him:
It shall be accounted to the Lord for
a generation.

31 They shall come and shall declare His
righteousness unto a People that shall
be born,
That He hath done this.

Thank you for pointing out that this is on YouTube. Who knew?
Psalm 22 is one of the many places in the Bible that show me that GOD's prophecies Do come true, even if we have to wait a long time.(Probably not so long now.)
I appreciated your comments on the belief forum today while I was there. I heard it got nasty. Thank you for being part of the army.

That is one of my favorite movies! I always watched it when I was a kid. Haven't seen it in a really long time.
