Killing Jesus - DVD Review

I received DVD for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
My Review:

I've been a Christian since I was a wee one, but I'm merely a "baby" when it comes to being knowledgeable on the Scripture or written Word.  It's just been in the past couple of years that I've begun to understand historical references in regards to the life of Jesus Christ. 
Killing Jesus, much like other movies of the same genre, shouldn't be viewed as absolutely historically accurate.  With that said, the scenes are played out quite well and the characters are convincing.   
Killing Jesus is a movie with lots of emotions and conflicts.  Jesus was portrayed as someone who was confused and unsure of himself at times.  I didn't feel that was accurately portrayed but, other than that, I enjoyed watching the movie centered around Christ.  

Some scenes in the movie are harsh and in-your-face. Jesus' crucifixion is shown in ghastly detail. If that doesn't remind you what Jesus went through to save people of their sins, nothing will!  Just like other movies depicting Jesus, there's not a lot of surprise or difference. Then again, it's the greatest, truest story ever told. If it were changed from what the Bible depicts, then it wouldn't be about Jesus Christ

Thanks for your honesty in this review. We watched it when it was on TV, but I just couldn't get past stripping the faith aspect out and making it just a historical documentary. You cannot intrinsically separate WHO Jesus was from history. I don't think there are a lot of people who deny Jesus actually existed, it's that he's the Son of God and Savior that they don't believe. While I enjoyed Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy, I was less than impressed with this one.

I would like to thank you for the review. Now that I have a good ides on this, and I didn't read too far to give the plot away, I now want to see this.
