‘The Young Messiah’ May Find Oppositions From Bible Defenders?
When viewers watch “The Young Messiah,” they have to view it objectively by separating from historicity or religion. Several scholars of the Bible have very little knowledge about Jesus’ early life or how he looked like in his real life. In fact, there is no mention in the Gospel of his appearance — so what makes some of these scholars so defensive about the film?
It is not unusual for filmmakers to take creative liberties and mix fiction with facts. But there will be always two sides to this logic. A group of people may feel offended while there will be others who may opine that slamming a film, for this reason, is not fair enough.
