Movie Review: Son of God
I recently went to see the highly anticipated film, Son of God. I highly enjoyed the film and would recommend it to anyone that would like to know more about Jesus. This film encouraged me to start reading the Gospel and learn more about Jesus.
If you have already read the Gospel, you know that Jesus performed many miracles and was despised by many because of the fact that he spoke with authority on many subjects. He questioned what the Jewish leaders taught and he called them hypocrites several times.
In the movie, we see Jesus call his disciples to follow him. He teaches on several subjects and is angered when he finds that the temple is being used as a marketplace. We also see Jesus walk on water and raise a person from the dead.
While many films made about Jesus focus heavily on the crucifixion, this film does not. It is part of the story however it focuses more on the entire picture of Jesus' adult life.
It is an accurate portrayal of the Gospel and if you'd like to know about what Jesus did while he lived, then I recommend you watch this movie.
