Synopsis


The Young Messiah
Based on the novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt by Anne Rice, The Young Messiah is a biblical drama that imagines the life of Jesus at age seven. As his family travel from Egypt to Nazareth, the young Jesus (Adam Greaves-Neal) wishes to learn more about his identity and place in the world. Meanwhile, Herod Antipas (Jonathan Bailey) dispatches a Roman centurion (Sean Bean) to hunt down and kill the boy, whose miraculous powers might be a threat to his reign. Sara Lazzaro and Vincent Walsh also star in this film from director Cyrus Nowrasteh. ~ Tom Ciampoli, Rovi

    Fun but not theological

    Treat it for what it is-historical fiction with a lot of blanks creatively filled in. I thought it was enjoyable and I'm very familiar with the Bible and the gnostic gospels. The gnostic text is only controversial to people who are unfamiliar with them or who intentionally misuse them. Those who study textual criticism (including those who are not Christian) don't take the gnostic gospels seriously. I only mention this as an additional thought so that people don't fear the movie (Christians) or use the movie to to bludgeon people who are Christians with silly uneducated opinions about conspiracies during the selection of books to include in the Bible.

    Interesting interpretation of a time in the life of Jesus. I'm pretty sure there is no historical basis for most of the story other than a few simple facts. None the less, I thought the story was good, although I did not agree with some aspects of it. I thought that some of the acts as a child seemed to marginalize the later works of the adult. But that is just my opinion and my interpretation. It is well presented and the acting is first rate. Mr. Bean was superb.

    This makes you think about Jesus as a youth.

    I saw The Young Messiah in the theater and was very captivated by it. The Bible does not tell us anything about Jesus at this age, but the screenwriter created a believable series of events that are based on Bible stories and the history surrounding His birth. It makes for an exciting movie to watch and causes you to think.

    The Holy Bible tells us Mary and Joseph took the baby Jesus to Egypt to save him from Herod's order to have all male Jews 2 years old and under killed for fear of one of them taking his place as King in the future. This story speculates how Jesus must have lived as child while in Egypt before he returned to the Holy Land after Herod's death.

    What an amazing and thought provoking story inspired by Scripture. Imagine Jesus, as a young Boy, asking His parents, Mary & Joseph, why He is different. Imagine trying to protect Him from those sworn to kill Him. When do you tell a Child all that you know about Him? Can't wait for a sequel.

    It was a pleasure to watch a film on his life and not see people blown up or shot without a steady stream of four letter words. Any parent should buy this and watch it with their children. Great story.

    The first time I saw this movie I was captivated by the character of Jesus as a child. The child like faith and love of family and people and the wisdom, he had. I was impressed because as a Christian is very important to me.
