Posted on 02/02/2014 10:18:31 AM PST by GonzoII
From the award-winning producers of the record-breaking miniseries The Bible, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, comes Son of God, the larger-than-life story of The New Testament, to be released by 20th Century Fox on February 28, 2014. Son of God is a major motion picture that brings the life of Jesus Christ to the big screen like never before.
Told with the scope and scale of an action epic, the film features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects and a rich orchestral score from Oscar®- winner Hans Zimmer. Award-winning actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection.
The movie is action-packed with special effects, powerful acting, and beautiful cinematography. It marks the first major motion picture about Jesus' life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago...

"The Giver of life story"
I hope hubby will take me to see it.
For the first time since Gibson’s The Passion Mrs. fella and I may actually break our oaths and enter a movie house.
God were my eyes wet watching The Passion! Was very difficult.
Their Bible series was so full of false information, I wonder how they will murder the facts in this production.
Just added this to the Saved portion of my Netflix queue. They don’t list a release date for home viewing. Maybe May or June.
Hope this movie will be seen by millions.
I saw a preview of this movie when I saw, “Lone Survivor”. It looks good, I’ll probably go see it.
We watch the DVD of “The Passion” around Easter.
Mine too, I believe I cried through the entire film.
Have it here on DVD and still cry like a baby.
It was the only film where my 90 year old Father actually confessed that perhaps Jesus truly was the Son of God, for no man could endure what he did. It was a breakthrough :)
I saw some "artistic liberties" taken, but nothing that contradicted scripture, (I mean, we all realize Noah probably didn't have a Scottish accent....).
Watched the trailer. Wish they had cast an average-looking Middle Easterner for the title role, rather than a handsome white guy ...
I watched the whole series...I found very little, if any false information...
Care to clarify...
Two different opinions posted here. Yours and one from a non-Catholic.
I believe yours — and would not spend my money to go watch it in a theater or even buy a DVD.
The Passion of The Christ told the truth — I’ll stick with that and be contented.
I’ve heard they stick very close to the original texts. Born on Krypton, his parents reluctant to send him to earth...
Dumb Protestant question here...
In what way would a Catholic version be different?
Catholics do believe in the Biblical narrative of Christ being the Son of God..I presume?
It would have a lot more details in it that have been revealed to Blesseds and Saints.
Did you see The Passion of the Christ?
Of course...it was obviously made from a Catholic perspective...I still thought it is the most powerful movie made on the life of Christ...
lot more details in it that have been revealed to Blesseds and Saints.
Humm...those are not in Scripture...
I'm not saying they aren't valid at least to a Catholic, but the series the movie is based on is from the Four Gospels...not on Catholic Church teaching
If it is made on the Gospels, then why are there differing opinions about it?
Good question...You tell me?
Catholics (at least on this thread) seem to have a problem with this version...because it did not contain extra Biblical Catholic teaching...
How is this different from the “Jesus” film that’s been out for years? That’s a good, stick-to-the-text presentation of the Gospel.
The first endorsement listed is from Joel Olsteen. That is not a good sign. The rest of the endorsements do not inspire any confidence.
I hadn’t been in a theater since E.T. until The Passion.
I’ve probably gone twice since then.
I hate theaters.
Something about the darkness and the screen curvature gives me vertigo.
But this, I’d go see.
I'm sure it's going to be good < / sarc>
I’m saddened to see the sectarian attacks on this thread I can see the hand of The Dark One there. Not the currant POTUS but the one he serves.
Go see the movie.
Speaking of which, "The Jesus Film" (as it's called now) is being released on blu-ray in April.
The Bible miniseries was pretty good. Where the Passion focuses well on the Passion, Son of God is more like a King of Kings or Greatest Story Ever Told encompassing the entire ministry of Christ.
The producers are married. The lady is Irish and Catholic who used to star on Touched by an Angel series.
The interesting point is the producers are married. The wife is the actress Roma Downey who is Roman Catholic. She and her husband wanted to stay close to the text. The husband is the producer for Survivor Mark Burnett. Burnett is described as a Christian and I could not verify a denomination. More info here:
I thought the miniseries was good. Unless you get one of those verse by verse movies, you will always deal with truncation and added drama or events out of chronological order. No different in The Bible series and am sure Son of God will no doubt have its cuts.
If folks are looking for the verse by verse type of Gospel movie then here is a good one:
Thanks. We still have a VHS tape, I think!
Regeneration v. The Idolatry of Decisional "Evangelism" (Paul Washer)
It seems these are legal uploads, which is what i want them to be if i watch them.
Didn't get an answer on that one did ya???
Thanks! Never knew there was a Spurgeon movie.
