“Son of God” ... A Miraculous film

Reviewed by Nancy Snipper

This carefully paced, sublime movie masterpiece is inspiring as it fluidly takes us on the journey of Jesus and his apostles. Jesus of Nazareth begins to gather his closest friends to his god-given enlightenment, power and holy manner, saying simple yet such eternal words of love and wisdom that we hear in The Gospel. Things are looking good, but The Jews are threatened by his coming to Jerusalem on their Passover feast. Judas has told the leader of the Jews where the Holy One is having supper – his final one – as he knows. Interestingly, the film shows Pontus Pilot, the prefect as giving Jesus the chance to live but the vote will be taken by the people. As he appears, we have just witnessed a barbaric scene where he endures 40 lashes,
Portuguese Diego Morgado, the beautiful actor who played Jesus was excellent.
Of course the film without much to-do shows Jesus in various situations working miracles on the common person. His Holy Ghost visits John, now exiled who has outlived the other followers. Jesus tells him that all will start anew and that is when he will return. 

  Directed by Christopher Spencer, the film is yet another interpretation on the immeasurable holy goodness of Jesus and Mankind’s inability to accept him and live in his path.
