Did we miss something on diversity?

Made by new agers

*Christian review* The people that made this film are not Christians but instead some sort of new agers. The movie twists from the Gospels account and make Jesus a different Jesus. Jesus didn't kiss Lazarus to make Him come alive and I think there were other perversions to make this appeal to all people. I thought some parts were OK and true to the story (loved the walking on sea part) but would never see again and didn't like how the woman was prevelant so much and how modern they made the movie. The depiction of Jesus mother being there was something I enjoyed. It is violent because the Bible account is.

Christianity Rocks!!!

I am a faithful woman of God and this movie was beautiful! I am a school teacher (Religion teacher) and I showed my student this and they were amazed! I really do think Jesus is the saviour and this movie proves it! Please fellow Christian women, moms, daughters, sisters etc. Watch this amazing movie to educate yourself on the lord and follow my instagram to DM me for some tips on how to be beautiful Christian women. @KarenKnowsBest_
