The Young Messiah

The Young Messiah is my current favorite movie, by far, and I have been hugely into movies all my decades on earth. My favorite celebrity is a movie star, not a politician, not an entrepreneur, not a religious figure. In fact, after I learned my true identity, I wondered, how do you explain the fact that I am so into movies? The answer is, you are fascinated by God's creation, God is fascinated by yours. Right back at you.

I watched the Godfather movies many many times. The next stop was Heat. It is a classic. Then I watched the Bourne movies more times than I can remember. It still speaks to me. At one point Bourne says, how can I do all these amazing things and not know who I am? I could have said that a few times these past few decades. And now it is The Young Messiah. I cried a bucket just watching the trailer, and I cried in many public places.

As God's very own Son I tell you, this movie's release was timed to coincide with the year I learned my true identity. Abba meant it that way. This movie was made for me.

I just wrote to the director on his Facebook page.
