If one day a movie were produced about your life, what moment/story would it capture? If it were limited to around two hours, what events/relationships would it focus on? Would it be a comedy? A tragedy? A drama? Perhaps some of all three rolled together? How would it end? And would people still be interested in your biopic 2000 years from now? My guess would be—and this is certainly true of me—that our largely forgettable life stories would be largely forgotten less than 2000 days after their release dates.
Not so with the life of Jesus. He has been portrayed in hundreds of films since movies were invented. The producers of the immensely popular “The Bible” mini-series on the History Channel, released a full length feature film this February about the life of Jesus called “Son of God”.
There are many memorable moments that are beautifully portrayed in this retelling of the Gospel story. One of my favorite scenes is when Jesus played by Diogo Morgado enters the tomb that holds the body of Lazarus. We know the story from John 11 when Jesus raises him from the dead. In one of the film's more interesting moments, Jesus, standing over Lazarus, reaches down to kiss the forehead of His dead friend, and as He does, Lazarus' eyes open. The scene, underscored by a Hans Zimmer soundtrack is simply thrilling.
