“Son of God”
Our family is patiently waiting for the opening of “Son of God” on February 28th. We have watched the trailers, read reviews only to increase our anticipation.
Here is what Christian Cinema.com has to say about this upcoming movie:
The best on-screen biblical account of the life of Jesus!
“Son of God” is lovingly made from start to finish. It is a warm and moving picture of the life of Jesus from the beginning to the resurrection. Producer Mark Burnett said they could not possibly film everything that happened in the gospels, so he selected certain highlights that conveyed the character and nature of Jesus as the true Son of God. This film is filled with compelling cinematography and closeups that draw the audience right into the midst of each scene.
“Son Of God” opens with a declaration from the book of John, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God”. The film reinforces that pronouncement with various events including Adam being created from the dirt, scenes of Noah and Moses leading up to the eventual telling of the story of Jesus. His birth in Bethlehem and His baptism by John the Baptist were clearly portrayed. Other moving scenes include Jesus teaching the Beatitudes, walking on the water, the feeding of the multitude, and raising Lazarus from the dead. The film treats Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on a donkey followed by the Last Supper and His betrayal with careful detail. Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane and his capture through to the crucifixion are indelible reminders of His suffering and sacrifice for mankind.
