THE YOUNG MESSIAH
The Young Messiah
Our Recommendation and Comments:
We recommend this movie to mature Christian adults. WARNING: We know very little historically about Jesus as a young child; it is mostly myths and traditions. However, we enjoyed this movie very much. They did a good job of taking all the myths and stories and filtering them into a cohesive, inspiring and a believable fictional account of the Young Messiah. NOTE THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR YOUNG CHILDREN or even young adults who are not firm in their Christian beliefs. We think letting young people see this movie may only confuse their immature faith. Also this movie has much violence and very serious drama - like when the devil is tempting the young Jesus.
One part of this fictional story that we enjoyed was when young Jesus defends his earthly father Joseph before the Jewish rabbis. We call this scene, the Defense of Carpenters.
