Movie Risen

A few weeks ago, I saw a movie, Risen, starring Joseph Fiennes as a Roman Tribune who helped to crucify Christ and then miraculously got to see Him after He has risen from the dead. I thought the movie was really good and stuck to the text of the Bible fairly accurately. I loved the scene where the Tribune gets to see the man he helped to kill sitting alive in a room among His disciples and followers. In that scene, Fiennes did a good job of portraying the shock and amazement of seeing the resurrected Lord. Also the scene where Christ heals a leper is good.

If you get a chance to watch this movie, I think you will enjoy it. I cannot begin to imagine what it must have been like to see a dead man raised to life and walking and talking among us and then get to watch Him ascend back into heaven to return to His Heavenly Father. Praise God!
