the YOUNG MESSIAH 

 

I am very thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy of the YOUNG MESSIAH. We received the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD. The UPC has a cut in it, and there was a sticker on the case that this can only be used for review purposes. So the FCC can chill out, and comprehend we were not given full retail value. Even if we were the value of this review is way above full retail value. Isn't it lame that in this day and age we have to mention these disclaimers? Thank you President Obama for implementing these regulations.

I love theological discussions and debates within the church. I miss having good friends nearby to have deep theological discussions with. Which is why the YOUNG MESSIAH is so interesting to me. The movie has a disclaimer at the beginning that it starts with Biblical placement, and truth; then it imagines a year in the life of Jesus Christ as a young child. It admits there is no basis in fact in what the majority of the movie contains.

the YOUNG MESSIAH has Jesus performing miracles like healing people and raising the dead. This is where the theological debate comes into play. Did Jesus perform miracles as a child? the YOUNG MESSIAH shows realistically what would have happened. Herod would have realized his father did not kill off the messiah and then make sure to finish the task. So ultimately the YOUNG MESSIAH left me with the opinion that Jesus Christ did not do miracles as a child.

The best interactions in the YOUNG MESSIAH is when Jesus talks with the rabbis. Those conversations are priceless. The interactions with Satan are also very interesting. I love how Joseph and Mary are portrayed in the YOUNG MESSIAH. They do not have it all together. They do not have all the answers. They had a difficult task in raising the messiah. I felt bad for them.

the YOUNG MESSIAH does contain blood, violence, a little enticement to lust, and some thought provoking content. The extras are deleted scenes, the making of, and commentary. the YOUNG MESSIAH even did something crazy. It tried to connect to the Internet to show me previews of other Universal movies. That was freaky. I hope that does not become a trend.

All in all I enjoyed the YOUNG MESSIAH as a film in the what if kind of scenarios. I do not take the YOUNG MESSIAH as Biblical truth. If a young Jesus performing miracles bothers you then I hope I have given you the tools to make your own decision. You make the call for your own family.
