Throughout the movie, Romans and Hebrews alike casually talk about Yahweh. On their way to Galilee, the Apostles even begin the Lord's prayer with "Yahweh, hallowed is your name." No Jew, Apostles included, would dare pronounce the name of God, except the High Priest in the Holy of Holies of the Temple in Jerusalem, and he would only do it once a year for Yom Kippur. Jewish people would use other terms, like "Adonai" (Lord), "Haqadosh" (The Holy One), and "Hashem" (The Name). See more »

Well made movie on a smaller scale!
3 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

I love this movie!!! It is action packed so beware because there are some graphic killings and dead corpses involved. So if you bring younger kids, this might not be kids' friendly for them. It is a nicely done "epic" movie on a smaller scale, thus, I can understand that the movie could have been made grander. The actor Joseph Fiennes is an amazing actor! He is going to be an up and coming popular, possibly mainstream, actor. The most memorable parts of the movie were the spectacular actors of Clavius, Clavius' aide, Pontius Pilate, Bartholomew, Simon Peter, Mary Magdelene, Joseph Arimatheas and Jesus Christ. Also a few scenes were well acted such as the beginning fighting scene of the Romans and zealots, the healing of the leper and the fishing trip at the sea of Galilee plus a few other Roman raids. My friend and I enjoy this movie very much. It contains simple yet powerful gospel messages. Two thumbs up!!!
