The gospels don't fully explain why Judas betrays Jesus, so the imaginative tale of Judas' mother who needs a funeral, fills the gap. The music underscores the power of God in scenes such as, when Jesus pays a poor man's taxes and then asks Mathew, the tax collector, to follow Him. Background information is explained by the expanded role of Pilate's wife. Why Judas had to identify Jesus, was imagined to be because the centurion, named Flavius, could not identify Him because he had been arrested for refusing to capture Jesus. The film makes parts of the Bible come alive as for example, when the disciples gained the ability to go two-by-two to heal. This is often omitted from stories about Jesus because it is difficult to dramatize. Using low tech camera tricks instead of computer graphics, made the healing seem more real to me. Judas suggestion that the disciples pay for their ministry by highway robbery, adds poignancy to Jesus in the garden saying "Did you come with swords to capture me, as though I were a common thief?"
I found this story to be very inspiring. I hope it will be shown again on TV. It would be a good story for churches to show to their teenagers who strive to be like Jesus.
Like I said, it's not 100% all true, but at the same time, it uses the Bible as a foundation to the whole story. We actually know little about Judas from the Bible. But with facts about the culture and how people of that time acted, it's possible.
I love the way they made Jesus so, REAL! He seemed VERY approachable. And there is a part that Judas and Jesus pray wrestle. WOW, I thought that was sooo cool. There were some parts that Jesus looked at Judas, with so much hurt and pain, in his eyes, and how Judas just couldn't get it!
I am so glad I own this movie. I saw it years ago, and have always wanted it!
Jesus Loves you, and no matter WHAT is going on in your life, if you turn your live to HIS control, it can be worked out in the end. Jesus has changed my life, and I know he can change yours (for the better). Plus, we are not here on earth forever. You have to think about the next! That is where it ALL counts.
Buy the movie!
