Title: Jesus (1999)

Have you guys seen this? I watched the beginning and something doesn't feel right about Jesus's behavior.

No, Haven't seen it and I don't think that I've even heard anything about it.

I have never heard of the movie either.

Edited to add; I am reading IMDb plot summary. Jesus NEVER used a whip, in the temple area, nor anywhere else!!

From IMDb; When Jesus wants to go with his students to the temple to pray, he finds the temple court full of traders and money changers. Suddenly overcome with rage, Jesus hurls their stands to the ground and, wielding a whip, drives the profiteers out of the temple. When neither the Jews nor the Romans show signs of resistance, it becomes clear that Jesus will play an important role in Judea's future religious and political development.

For example, Jesus preaches that God favors the meek, the poor and the faint. Above all, however, he doesn't put strict observance of the laws first, but rather love of one's fellow man. Jesus doesn't even shun non-Jews, to his disciples' dismay. All attempts by the ambitious disciple Judas to give Jesus' teachings a political twist fail. Judas is forever trying in vain to gain Jesus' support for the Zealots' freedom fight.

Okay, I think it is time to trash this movie, as it makes things up, and doesn't follow the Bible very well!! This is a movie fit for the garbage can, and no where else!!

I didn't get that far into it. I think I need more information before trashing it.

Hello Brother David,

I haven't heard anything about Jesus 1999. I would be skeptical about it until I found out who made it and what they believe. As an example, many false religions believe that Jesus was just a man, not God, a brother to Lucifer, and all kinds of wild things that are not Biblical at all.

I just checked the Bible on one issue:

John 2:13-16  And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,  14  And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:  15  And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;  16  And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

Love In Christ,
