“Son of God” Movie Hits Theaters Feb. 28

For the first time since Mel Gibson’s 2004 film “The Passion of the Christ,” Jesus will be back on the big screen. “Son of God,” directed by Christopher Spencer, will portray the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ.

Building upon the hit History Channel miniseries “The Bible,” “Son of God” is based on John’s Gospel account. It stars Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado as Jesus, and Roma Downey, of “Touched by an Angel,” as Mary.

So how are Christians responding to this movie? With wholehearted enthusiasm it seems. “Son of God” is being praised by church leaders such as Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles and mega-church pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church. Some churches are even buying out theaters to watch screenings of the movie.

This is just the first in a lineup of biblical movies coming to theaters this year, such as “Noah” (release date: March 28), “Exodus” (December 12), and “Mary, Mother of Christ.”

It’s exciting to see faith being integrated into mainstream movies, and it will be even more exciting to see how youth respond to it.
