The BBC are screening a new mini-series called “The Passion“. It’s a four parter, covering the last few days of Jesus’ life. The first part aired on Sunday, but we only got round to watching it yesterday.
I didn’t know what to expect – secular films about the life and death of Jesus aren’t always very sympathetic – but I thought this was done very well. The only thing I was a bit concerned about was them putting words in Jesus’ mouth: I don’t recall Jesus ever saying “The Kingdom of God is within you”!
But overall I think they did a good job, and I quite look forward to seeing the rest of them, it will be interesting to see how they handle it!
