Crop And Save
Let's see this film again.
This well-written film by Tom Fontana uses colloquial English to weave together the theme of power against the humble. Judas vs. Jesus. It is difficult to imagine how the disciples went out two-by-two, but it all seems reasonable in the humorous, but inspiring story of Judas and James bringing a lady back to life. The music underscores the power of God in scenes like the call of Matthew when Jesus pays a poor man's taxes and asks Matthew to follow Him.
The film explains why Judas originally took the money by giving Judas a mother who needed a funeral. It was clever signal to Judas when Jesus says, "Did you come with swords to capture me, as though I were a common thief?" Many things are explained by the expanded role of Pilate's wife and Flavius. For example, Claudia knew about the custom of releasing a prisoner for the Passover and because Flavius was under arrest, Judas had to identify Jesus.
How can a person get a video of JUDAS? I hope it will be shown next Easter and with more advertising than last March.
