JESUS FLIX - THE BLOG
 
Jesus FLIXS -- The Blog

We all know the meanings of all the grand Jesus flixs, i.e., we take them at their visual word. Jesus of Nazareth, as known in the canonical Christian Newer Testament, cannot be depicted on film, seemingly, without making him eerie, supernatural, or way too comical. He cannot simply be human. God forbid we deviate in film from the Council of Chalcedon’s (451 C.E.) determination that Jesus was of two natures (human and divine) in one person. Visualizing the “divine” nature of Jesus is just too strange to do in film. This blog will be an examination of this character of faith and theology in film, the one person who, in theory, is human and divine. We shall see how each film will do in this regard. Can’t wait.
