Tuesday Morning Group
The Tuesday Morning Group is starting a new study this week, during which we’ll be viewing the 1977 Film, Jesus of Nazareth, feathering Robert Powell, Olivia Hussey and Laurence Olivier. Beginning before the Nativity and extending through the Crucifixion and Resurrection, this mini-series brings to life all of the sweeping drama in the life of Jesus, as told by the Gospels. Although the film, like many biblical films, tries to clearly depict the spiritual nature of Christianity, this one goes beyond that. It gives you a glimpse into the politics, social/religious hierarch, economics, and the mindstate of the Jewish and Roman communities throughout the era. It’s more than just your typical Christ film. It’s gives you a broader view and a complete understanding of what it was like to live in the times of Jesus Christ.
