I just watched the film Son of God in the theatre and I was impressed.  It had flow and it was very professionally done. It was originally produced for the TV series called “The Bible” and now they have taken the parts about Jesus and put them on the big screen. Films like this are rare so here are some reasons why its worth checking out.

 

1. The script is in modern everyday english. Films about Jesus usually use old english translations that don’t feel natural. Even “The passion of the Christ” film was in the Aramaic language with English subtitles. The dialogue feels like it is like any other modern Hollywood movie.

2. It is a great way to visualize the message of the gospels. Most Jesus people have all read the text of the gospels but watching it gives it all new meaning. It is great to see Jesus interact with his disciples and see how they make mistakes and react to situations.

3. It’s a great way to present the gospel to someone who doesn’t know the Jesus story. There are still so many people who do not understand the story of Jesus and they will never read the gospels by themselves. Anyone can enjoy this film, whether you are Christian or not.
