“Son of God” Jesus returns to the Big Screen after a Decade

“Son Of God” the movie to be released in theaters on February 28 will be the first Jesus film on the big screen in a decade. During the filming of “The Bible” series, creators Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor and many more) and wife actress Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) had an “aha” moment. The Jesus footage that had already been shot with Portugese actor Diogo Morgado aka Jesus were incredible and at that moment decided “we should be making a movie”. Extra footage was shoot and than re-edited into film, which took 12 months to edit into a two hour Jesus Story.Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. It marks the first motion picture about Jesus’s life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago.

Son of God is the first major feature film portraying the whole life of Jesus Christ in nearly 50 years, since The Greatest Story Ever Told came out in the 60’s. It is being released by a major Hollywood studio – 20th Century Fox – and is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. In many cities nationwide, churches are buying out ENTIRE MUTLIPLEXES – see this story: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/son-god-church-leaders-buying-680462

Regardless of what you think of Jesus and the many churches and denominations that follow him, I think you will find this movie a compelling, powerful, inspiring and educational portrayal of the most famous person who ever lived – whose impact on the world is second to none.

For your reference, I have included some information about the film below. If you’re in my area, I would be happy to attend the movie with you!
