Trivia

Jesus Christ says "Talitha Cumi" when he brings the girl back to life from her death. Talitha Cumi is Aramaic which means "Little girl, rise." Aramaic was the language of first century Israel. Aramaic continued to be the language of Jews in early second century AD until Simon Bar Kokhba tried to revive Hebrew and tried to make Hebrew the official language of Jews during Bar Kokhba revolt (132-135 AD). According to Book "Naming the Witch: Magic, Ideology, and Stereotype in the Ancient World" written by Kimberly B. Stratton (p. 232), Dead Sea Scrolls Archaeologist Yigael Yadin suggests that Bar Kokhba was trying to revive Hebrew by decree as part of his messianic ideology. See more »

Fantastic!
24 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is SO awesome! I've seen it so many times that I can quote most of the dialog! If you want the ultimate portrayal of Jesus, watch this movie. If you want to see the best church sermon ever, watch this movie. If you want God in your life and don't know how to go about it, watch this movie! Anyone who isn't touched by this movie definitely has a heart of stone.

At the scene where Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead, the camera pans out and you see the countryside and Jesus from the back with his arms out and the tomb. Pay attention, after Lazarus walks out and the music gets dramatic, you see a huge shadow pass over the land that literally looks like God himself waved his arm over the earth. I wouldn't be surprised if He really did; showing us that He's pleased at what He was seeing! ;)
