An Interesting Interpretation of Scripture.
12 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being the first movie of the Gospel I've ever seen which was produced in France with English duologue, at first I was intrigued when the duologue contained snippets of what I recognized as Scripture, but which was NOT from any of the English versions I have ever studied, so it piqued my interest.

It contains a plethora of interpretations that do not coincide with my own interpretations of the events surrounding His ministry based on my study of the Gospel in multiple languages, however, as I have yet to undertake a study of the Gospel from the perspective of the French language, I cannot help but say that I found it to be a lot more interesting than some quicker-cheaper productions about the Word.

It was enough to help me overlook so many of the technical flaws that I saw in this film, as being perhaps translational inaccuracies and errors.
