* JewishComplaining: In a movie set in first century Palestine. In this case, a farmer who has ordered Joseph to make him a new plow, who fits the trope as a FunnyBackgroundEvent while the child Jesus climbs a ladder to get closer to the skies.

* LargeHam: John the baptist. Michael York runs on scenery chewing most of the time. He only quiets down when he meets Jesus. His bellowing even disturbs king Herod´s exquisite banquet and has to be shut down by loud music.

* OccultBlueEyes: Perhaps the most notable thing about Powell's Jesus are his extremely clear blue eyes. He also never blinks. ''Barely'' blinks. He does blink once, and it's a "look away and you'll miss it" type thing. This technique was deliberate on the part of the director; he wanted to add an air of divinity to the character by calling attention to the actor's [[WhatBeautifulEyes gorgeous eyes]].

Added DiffLines:

** Herod the Great has some moments as well.


** Both Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus (James Mason and Creator/LaurenceOlivier, respectively) appear more often than they do in the Gospels.

* {{Facepalm}}: Even here. Judas does a double one when Jesus insults pretty much the entire Sanhedrin with his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in part two. And then there is Pontius Pilate, who seems to facepalm quite a lot when he rups his forehead, pondering how to ever govern such people.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: Zera. Both snarky and pretty deadpan to boot.

Added DiffLines:

* PietaPlagiarism: Rubbing off the "plagiarism" part of the trope, as it is meant to show the real thing: Mary holding the dead Jesus in her arms post Crucifixion.


* CaliforniaDoubling: Morocco and Tunisia stand in for Israel. In particular, synagogue scenes were shot in Djerba Island in Tunisia, one of the last Arab Jewish enclaves in North Africa, while the town of Monastir, also in Tunisia, represents Jerusalem.

Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When Peter sets off his first MotiveRant, Jesus has a lot of fun, and it shows.


* AsideGlance: Doubles with LeaningOnTheFourthWall, when Joseph and Mary exchange marital oaths early in the movie. One of the witnesses looks straight and at the camera at one point with the following words (while showing a broad smile):

** Peter, who sets off his EstablishingCharacterMoment as a man who has a ''lot'' to complain about.

Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfSymbolism: The "Five breads and two fishes" scene. Note that Mary Magdalene is one of the many receiving from the bread basket. When she visibly breaks down crying after her first bite, we ''know'' this is not ordinary bread, but serves as a {{foreshadowing}} to the last supper. Mary visibly changes clothes after this incident as well.
