I've been asked to contribute a couple more entries to a reference work, The Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception, which I have contributed to before. The two new entries are the sections on film/movies, under the following subject heading entries:
- Illegitimate Offspring
- Kinship of Jesus
It seems as though it would be foolish not to crowdsource the brainstorming part of this undertaking. There are more movies that relate to the Bible than any one person is likely to have seen. And so I would welcome recommendations of movies that you think either depict Biblical stories, or explicitly mention texts from the Bible, in connection with either of the aforementioned themes.
