[Jesse is delivering another sermon to His congregation on the beach]
Jesse: You have heard that you should love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But what reward is in that? I am telling you to love your enemy, to pray and forgive those who persecute you... You expect God to do for you what you're not willing to do for others? Since God is your Father, shouldn't you be a reflection of Him? Anything that lasts does so because it is built on a solid foundation.

My My My Don't waste your time on this one
22 May 2005 | by thlane_98See all my reviews

This is a pitiful attempt to present a modern version of the story of Jesus. The entire movie seemed contrived throughout. The concept was ludicrous and it just didn't translate well at all. The soundtrack was incredibly lame. This one deserves to stay in the can hidden way back in the back of the vault. I see TBN picked this one up for broadcast late an night. That would be a very good time to broadcast it as it's not fit for daytime viewing. I was quite surprised too since it had some cursing in the script. I've seen lots of swords and sandals flicks and several religious films and I must say, without a doubt, every single one of them were better than this movie. In fact, I've seen movies I hated that were better than this movie. Is it ten lines yet?
