Oh noooos. FREEPERS heads are going to explode. They were saying the other day on another thread that they are going to boycott this film because they didn’t have enough hours to keep the Obama Devil in the movie Most on here will be wearing black clothes today upon hearing this news.
I saw ‘the Bible’ on tv. Is there enough difference in the New Testament part of the miniseries from the movie to warrant the trip?
Saw the movie yesterday and here’s what I posted.
I just saw it. Drove 60 miles to have dinner and watch the show with a dear friend. I did not see the Bible Series so cant compare but this falls short especially if you are not knowledgeable about the Bible. I knew when they had the wisemen at the manger scene we were in for some inerrancy issues. The BIGGEST TRAVESTY OF THE EXPERIENCE WAS HAVING TO SIT THROUGH TRASHY PREVIEWS OF COMING ATTRACTIONS. DEFINITELY NOT FOR FAMILY VIEWING OR FOR THAT MATTER ANYONES VIEWING . . THIS WENT ON FOR A GOOD HALF HOUR! Except for my friend, I knew no one in the theatre and the response to the show was tepid at best and there was concern about the lack of opportunities for the non-saved viewers to get a Salvation message out of it. I found myself coming home to do a fact check in my Bible and suggest if you go, you do the same. Maybe it was the blatant omission of key scriptures or the inclusion of half scriptures such as Jesus saying I am the Way the Truth and the Life . . . . the ending of that scripture never was given no man comes to the Father but by Me John 14:6
More time should have been spent sharing the Gospel on the Christian networks rather than devoting whole shows that spent time rehashing the making of the movie and fawning over the producers.
May I suggest the following for excellent resources. They have just remasterd the Jesus Film in HD http://jesusfilmhd.com/ or the Voice of the Martyrs film Jesus He Lived Among Us can be purchased in bulk for next to nothing We gave out hundreds at Christmas time and are still distributing. https://secure.persecution.com/p-5088-jesus-dvd-sleeve-pack-of-20-englishspanish.aspx
Actually it was the omissions throughout the movie that really caught my attention. I just thought to myself. . .this movie is a major lost opportunity to minister to the lost and it also didnt do anything to enhance a church goers Bible knowledge other than perhaps provide the impetus to go home and review the events portrayed in the movie in toto.
A thought just occurred to me . .why didnt they entitle the movie THE SON OF GOD. By their not quoting the entire Lords prayer and the entire verse John 14:6 I am the way the truth and the Life no man comes to the Father but my me, it leaves the movie really implying there are more than one sons of God and other ways to get to heaven.
While you are at it.. .

This Jesus looks like a cross dressing, long haired faggot.
Any film promoted by modalistt Jakes or New Ager Olsteen is suspect.
He is a Brit I believe, she is Northern Irish or Irish. I watched them on Hannity, they seemed okay. I enjoyed the Bible series. The movie may not be perfect but from what I saw on the Bible series, it’s not bad. I watched the Bible’s depiction of Acts and of Paul and the Road to Damascus, not bad and I don’t recall seeing that done in a movie before or at least not that well done. There is a movie on Paul out there.
The dialogue seems wooden and the Jesus looks like a soap opera heartthrob. Roma Downey is also a freak who I don’t trust. Passion of the Christ grabbed you by the throat and the visuals were arresting and very real. All the same, Son of God will make a mint at the box office, but nowhere near POTC’s $700 million.
It appears that the movie under discussion took in $9.4 million Friday night; about half a million behind Liam Neeson’s new flick.
Not what you think it is.
This movie will not send people away from Christ but towards Him. It is giving us an opportunity to discuss being Christians in places where it's sometimes difficult to initiate that conversation. Ex: "Wow! saw a great movie the other night" or "Have you seen Son of God yet? It's really great you should". Yes, they left out certain Scripture. However, they still included other Scripture which we can use to glorify God and bring the unbelieving to Him.
I heard an ad on the radio, with Jesus saying: “I...am the Way...and the Truth...” in this breathy, over-dramatic voice.
A big turn-off.
Reminds me of how Robert Powell played Jesus in “Jesus of Nazareth,” staring at everyone and everything like a psychotic, one of those non-blinkers like Marshall Applewhite.
