      This is a good movie overall. It stays true to the main facts, but it does deviate from the Biblical text in some areas. Many of them are minor and do not do violence to the truth, but some are more serious. One of those is the story of Lazarus. The movie changes it in too many ways. It has Jesus entering the tomb and speaking softly to Lazarus, while, in the Biblical text, Jesus stayed outside the tomb and called Lazarus in a loud voice. This is important because it allowed witnesses to see the miraculous nature of the resurrection. Overall, it is more accurate than not, and it has several other good points. The photography is excellent, with many truly beautiful scenes. The depiction of the passion of the Christ is accurate without being gory. Seeing it, one can almost feel His agony in this movie. Overall recommended. If you're familiar with the gospels, you'll notice the deviations from their narrative. As I said, most of them are minor, and thry keep the story moving, but some are serious enough to allow me to give it only 3 stars.

      History Channel At It's Best...

      I make this very clear - not to take away one scene of Mel Gibson's "The Passion" which in my perspective set into motion the modern day answers of what, when, where, who and why of the Creators Son, Jesus Christ "The Son of God". Since "The Passion", I grew to know more about the answers of Jesus Christ yet questioning the answer to nature. I my world "The Passion" showed witness to beyond belief pain to forgive all past, present and future sin. The History Channels "The Son of God " accomplished the same yet for the viewing audience of this film, delivered the same message in the "History Channel" method less the almost unbearable visual as of "The Passion". www.essaysonorder.com

      I loved Diogos' portrayal of Christ, as a very benevolent being, loving of all God's children but also human and humble. I appreciated that in an interview he claimed to be glad that he smiled many times, to some critics chagrin. It's true it was a difficult time period to navigate thru. So, no, I agree most people did not smile much I would gather. Therefore, seeming as though ...this man has a secret. Just like that which a knowing child's wink, Christ's smile would seem to do the same. It also has a super supporting cast. Also I appreciated that the screenplay showed us that even Jesus felt fear, and was ashamed to be frightful. And the forgiveness shown on those who had no thought of mercy, never mind care for killing an innocent. :) Art_ Peace and blessings

      When I first heard about the movie SON OF GOD, I didn't think it was a good idea. SON OF GOD is a movie that mostly contains re-edited scenes about Jesus from the 2013 miniseries THE BIBLE. There are some additional scenes in the movie, but the majority of it already appeared on television. I understand wanted to reach as large an audience as possible about the gospels (good news) of Jesus, but personally, it reeked a little too much like a money grab to me to simply re-edit television footage and add a few deleted scenes to make a movie that would be released in cinemas. However, I was willing to give the movie a chance and ended up seeing it in theatres twice.

      I have to admit, though I have seen this particular DVD elsewhere so am familiar with it, I purchased it at the time I got my first LED TV and BluRay player and had a DVD in mind I wanted to get but for the life of me could not remember the name. Thus, I got this one instead. Then later at home, before it was unwrapped, I remembered I wanted Passion of the Christ, called Best Buy,and they said they did have it. So I ended up exchanging this one, which was still in the wrapper, for Passion. But I would still recommend this as I recall it was excellent. Both of the movies were on sale, so the prices on both were great also, and the exchange was easy.

      anyone knows this story so why not mix it up a bit? add in a little spice to make it somewhat entertaining? nope. let's do the exact same thing we've been doing ever since a story from the bible has been adapted to a movie: make the movie exactly how it appears in the bible without any noticeable changes to the story or any added elements so we can get all the money we can from the christian movie-going audience who want to see the same story they've been reading for years or else they'll send death threats to any studio that makes a movie that tries to be in any way different.

      I had been waiting for a long time for this movie to come out on DVD and as I watched it, I must say that I was impressed moment by moment of how they portrayed Jesus!!!! Despite all of the nay sayers, I was able to visualize the stories that i have read in the Bible about Jesus' wondrous works. I must admit that I will watch this movie over and over again as this was the BEST MOVIE YET - and without all of the gruesomeness they portrayed in Passion of the Christ!!!!!!

      After the last few JESUS movies I wasn't sure about going to this one, but im SO glad I did! This has a fine cast and its well done! I just adored the actor portraying JESUS! He did a fine job! This movie is just about 15 seconds short of being JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR! I thought that at any minute they would all break out in song! And I would have been ok with that too! I really do take great joy in this movie! I even gave it away as mothers day gifts!
