Continuity mistake: When Jesus is being flogged, he is turned over onto his back, and whipping is heard. Later on, no marks are to be seen.

Revealing mistake: Have a look at some of the beards (and wigs) in this movie, the facial hair is coming loose on several of the disciples' beards.

Factual error: At the end of the film, Mary Magdalene approaches Jesus just as he has arisen from his tomb, at first shocked that he has arisen. As Jesus is talking to her and motioning with his hands, it is plainly clear that he has no nail marks/stigmata, when he should have. (See John 20: 24-29, where-in the resurrected Jesus shows "Doubting Thomas" the nail prints in his hands.)

Continuity mistake: When the emancipated Barabbas leaves his jail cell, he has a thin beard. Going outside of the prison, Barabbas's beard suddenly appears full and bushy.

Continuity mistake: When Salome is dancing, Herod is drinking wine from a glass cup and then immediately he is holding a a metal cup with no single trace of wine in it.

Continuity mistake: Just after Jesus is crowned with thorns,a strange object can be seen on his head. It looks like an urn or vase of some sort. Kind of odd.

Jesus: My God, my God, why have you foresaken me?

Trivia: Jeffrey Hunter, the actor playing Jesus, had his chest and armpits shaved for the part (why is anyone's guess). He was also barred from giving interviews.

Question: The first disciples to follow Jesus are shown as John and Andrew. But where did James brother of John vanish and there is no record in the Bible that these two followed the Baptist. Surely Philip and Bartholomew also are involved at this point or shouldn't the whole scene have started with Peter and then moved back to Andrew and the two boys of Zebedee? The assembling of the Apostles doesn't follow biblical accounts at all and a juvenile John is very much set apart from any brother.
