  1. Not only is the presence of Jesus Christ the most thought out version I ever seen in film, the concept of his person as a man yet honored as God on earth in the flesh was so well portrayed that when you understood that the people who were moved by just the sight of him were moved by the holy Spirit. The new version that came out and Gave Jesus Christ a face ,not only used words he never spoke and made it up, the image they used was a very handsome man, and not that Jesus Christ was ugly but the scripture clearly states he was of mild and regular complexion, that not by his looks did people come to learn but by his word. This movie will always move me, and the new movies in the future should really take into consideration the reality that making an image of Jesus Christ belittles the scripture because it then causes idol worship .
