Where can I get hold of The Gospel According to St Matthew?

  • Currently streaming for free on Hulu in both original and colourized formats (see above).  Note: both versions are dubbed and not subtitled.
  • Currently available to stream free on Amazon Prime (also available for purchase).  Note: this is also the dubbed version.
  • Recommended version: Dual Format Blu-ray + DVD, Region 2 (UK Import), with lots of special features including Sopralluoghi in Palestina.
  • There is also a cheaper DVD Vanilla Release (Amazon).
  • It is very easy to get hold of on Youtube (e.g. here), though it is not always easy to see how “official” these uploads are. The advantage of the Youtube upload is that it is the subtitled version.
