The image presented of Jesus was one that seems most unlikely but at the same time, possible.

Context aIn the film Jesus, the image presented of Jesus was one that seems most unlikely but at the same time, possible. It was like how Max Lucado has described in his books, that when Jesus was born of man, he was not spared of the regular trails of being in a human body. He was truly God, but still he was truly human. He was very popular, yes and at the same time controversial. He was good, but always criticized. He cared generally; he was presented as a very caring person. bThe part of the film that struck me most were: 1. The part where he was lost at the temple. I have baby cousins and they usually panic when they get lost, but Jesus in the film did not. It was very human to get left behind, but the way that he reacted to it at a very young age signifies a level of maturity and that He was a really special person, being God. 2.

Would I do the same? I feel strongly that I could have. This scene struck me the most. cThe people in those days were searching very hard for an unseen salvation. They were just like at all times like lost sheep that Jesus has come to gather.

The Pharisees existed, those people who are absolutely preachy but cannot really understand the word of God. They are all words and pride. They accuse the poor and the unfortunate and put themselves up in pedestals, which is easy to do because there are also many poor and desperate people at that time. T…
