The 10 Worst Movies About Jesus

a Biblical thought...
What you must solemnly realize is that every time you eat this bread and every time you drink this cup, you reenact in your words and actions the death of the Master. You will be drawn back to this meal again and again until the Master returns. You must never let familiarity breed contempt. (1 Cor 11:26)

a Book thought...
Jesus simply didn't say very much about the future life; he was, after all, primarily concerned to announce that God's kingdom was coming ón earth as in heaven'. (p189 Wright)

a Dave thought...
You would think the opportunity to play Jesus Christ in a major motion picture would be a distinction even more amazing than playing Hamlet, since Jesus is someone that no human could ever thoroughly understand unless he had the mind of God. Well, think again. Chances are the reason the director picked you is because you're the guy who couldn't afford haircuts and you owned a dusty pair of Man Sandals.
These are the movies that make the story of the Son of Man look like the story for Son of Flubber.

It is sad how often our attempts to go big with media and movie making about the most influential man ever are always so bad.

Just a thought.
