Last Days in the Desert
1 August 2016 | by jonathancolespiveySee all my reviews

The film is fiction. I don't think Jesus was written with a supernatural significance. Jesus Christ is the son of God. In this story, Christ was written as a holy man and never really identified as the son of God. I did like the humanity of the acting and the writing revealed humane qualities. The film needed the resurrection. It didn't have a faith based message without the resurrection. Christ lived a man's life and he died on the cross for our sins and was resurrected. The resurrection was left out, which gave it a stale ending. The resurrection is just as important as the crucifixion. I didn't like the fact that Jesus did not revive the old man (father). Jesus never let anything die around him. He walked in life and all death was resurrected around him. He was a man to bring death back to life. This was missing. I did not like that the director left that out. I don't consider it a Christian film, although it was interesting. Needs resurrecting.
