First off know that this movie is not based on the bible gospels but rather on a fictional novelization of the life of christ. In other words it isn't the same christ from the bible. Though the majority of the movie is the same christ. The main difference is when he is on the cross, wondering what life would have been like if he chose to live rather than die. I won't post spoilers. Frankly this is one of the best jesus movies ever. Most folks who have faith should have even more after viewing. Those that don't may even get faith by viewing. Don't be one of the folks that judge before even viewing the film. Watch it, you will probably enjoy it. If not that is good too as everyone can't like the same thing. This is definitely worth a rental at least!
