Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (producer of The Voice, The Apprentice, Shark Tank, and others), the couple who brought us the Bible Miniseries last year, now have a feature film about the life of Jesus called Son of God. The film opens this Friday, February 28th, 2014.

As a person of faith I’m certainly interested in cinematic depictions of Our Lord, and indeed how He is in fact depicted. To be perfectly honest, I did not see all of The Bible when it was on; what I did see left me scratching my head. For instance, in Scripture Jesus didn’t enter the tomb of Lazarus. But in The Bible, He does-kissing the dead man on the forehead. For my money, commanding a corpse to rise is dramatic enough all in itself (without any need for embellishment).

I’m certain there were other changes as well. And I understand that neither T.V., nor movies, are the same kind of medium as the written word. That changes may sometimes have to be made for time, for flow, etc. But they should at least make sense.

Anyway. I’m likely going to see Son of God because it appears to be the kind of movie that I can take my family to (unlike The Passion of the Christ, which would be too violent for my little girl). Which is my roundabout way of saying that we who are believers should at least try to support fellow believers who are trying to make wholesome art.

That’s my $.02.

Are you going to see Son of God?

  • No I’m probably not seeing it. I didn’t like The Bible. Jesus looks prettier than I imagine he really was too. But I am going to see God’s Not Dead in a few weeks. It may turn out cheesy. Not sure what I think about Noah yet.

  • It looks like Noah is fighting a war or channeling his Gladiator persona in the commercials, which I’m pretty sure isn’t in the Bible. I’ve already decided to take a pass on that one. Beyond that, the last movie I was allowed to choose at the theater was Spider-Man 3, which has won me a seat in the doghouse now for 7 years running. So, I probably won’t get to this one until DVD.
