The Young Messiah: a scene guide (w/ clips and references to the scriptures, the apocryphal texts, and the novel)
Last month I wrote up a scene guide for Risen, noting which scriptures different parts of the movie were based on. Now it’s The Young Messiah’s turn — and this time, matters are complicated by the fact that the film is based not directly on the Bible, but on Anne Rice’s novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt, which in turn makes use of Old and New Testament apocrypha in addition to the scriptures.
Are live musical versions of popular Bible stories the next big thing?
How two word-for-word adaptations of The Gospel of John use bits from the other gospels (and Acts) as well
There aren’t that many word-for-word film adaptations of the Bible out there, but the genre — which got its start with The Genesis Project’s adaptations of Luke and the first half of Genesis in the 1970s — has grown to the point where we now have two very different films based on the same biblical text, namely the gospel of John.
