Killing Jesus Reviewed

Thursday, April 2, 2015

I don't know why I bother to watch "biblical" adaptations of the Bible, it doesn't matter who does it they end up messing it up! In this ridiculous adaptation, based on the book by Bill O'Reily is not even close to being biblical! Had I known that it was based on a book by Bill O'Reily I wouldn't have bothered.

When Jesus comes to John the Baptist and wants to be baptized, Jesus acts like he doesn't know who he is or why he is on earth, and then . . . after he is baptized no dove descends, God doesn't speak saying "This is My beloved Son, with Whom I am well pleased." Matthew 3:17

The few miracles that are performed by Christ in this movie he acts confused, like he has no clue he is the Messiah sent to save the world.

When he is crucified there are no thieves on his right and left, and the part that annoyed me the most, before he bows his head and dies he does not say to John, and his mother, Mary. "Mother, behold your son, son behold your Mother." John 19:25

The anointing of Jesus, happened in the upper room, and instead of her anointing his feet and wiping them with her hair, she anoints his hair. John 12:3; Jesus' feet anointed.

This is a 3 hour waste of time! I hated the Bible adaptation by Roma Downy and her husband. I realize that they can't put everything in a movie, however, God wrote the script at least follow it, don't ad-lib.

Don't waste your time!

A Story of Faith and Healing from Helo Matzelle’s ‘Halo Found Hope’ with a Kindle giveaway

Machines beeping, the blur of medical staff running, a crash cart whizzing into an ICU room, was there any hope? A young woman lay, packed in ice, as doctors attempted to somehow stop the swelling in her brain that threatened to take her life... and her family waited.
Six days turned into eight weeks. She awoke to discover that she was not the same. She saw two of everything, couldn't feel half of her face, couldn't hear from one ear, and could not speak. She couldn't even tell anyone that she felt hopeless...or could she?
Halo Found Hope is the story of a beautiful, busy wife, and mother of three whose life changes instantly with the diagnosis of a rare brain tumor. An exceptional ENT, a brilliant neurosurgeon and a dedicated medical team tackle the tumor, setting off a series of unbelievable miracles.
Helo's story is not one of survival, or of salvaging a life through a broken body. It is not about endurance through pain, but victory because of it. While the family heard her silence, God heard her prayer. Helo's story is simply this: Wherever you are and whatever you are going through, God is right there. He doesn't need to be recognized by you, to be there for you. He can replace fear with courage and discouragement with determination, if you let Him. Helo did, and that is how she found hope.

My Thoughts:

This book hit a little close to home. I didn't have a brain tumor, I did have brain surgery to remove the section of my brain that was causing my seizures. Helo's description of the surgery was vivid, a little to vivid for me who had experienced something very similar. With that said, the book showed hope, and how leaving things to Christ who is the Master Physician brings both peace and hope.
Highly Recommended!
