Have you seen the movie, Son of God? Some say it is a bit sappy, but I loved it. It is full of hope and joy. Jesus’ words that we know well from Scripture continue to echo in my head since seeing this movie.

You can’t help notice how good-looking and cool actor Diogo Morgado is as Jesus. Some call him “Hot Jesus.” And we don’t really know. Maybe the real Jesus was hot. He certainly was charismatic. He drew crowds everywhere and held their attention. Maybe people were initially drawn to his looks.

There’s no doubt that Jesus really did live, was brutally tortured, crucified, died, and rose from the dead. Those are historical facts. So I encourage all of you, even non-Christians and non-practicing Christians, to see the movie. It’s only 138 minutes of your time, and I really think it will offer you  a lot to think about.
