The Young Messiah Movie

the young messiah movieThis featurette gives us a first official look at The young Messiah (formerly titled “Christ the Lord”), the upcoming Bible drama movie directed by Cyrus Nowrasteh:

“At the age of 7, when Jesus (Adam Greaves-Neal) returns from Egypt to his home in Nazareth with his family (Vincent Walsh as Joseph and Sara Lazzaro as Mary), he discovers the truth about his life.
Told from his childhood perspective, it follows young Jesus as he grows into his religious identity.”

A few words from Director Cyrus Nowrasteh:

“Our film seeks to present a realistic portrait of Jesus as a child both grounded in faith and consistent with the adult Jesus revealed in the Bible. As believers, we hope that children will be drawn to the child Jesus and that this can be an uplifting film for the entire family. It’s important to us that The Young Messiah inspires people to visit, or revisit, Jesus’ story from a fresh new angle, one that centers on an unexplored moment in His life between the nativity and His crucifixion and resurrection.”

    Mary was not 14 and should not be presented as 14 years old. The individual who “blasphemed” GOD by referring to him as pervert should ask the only true GOD of this universe for forgiveness. Just my humble opinion.

    God would not have gone by the traditions of many men back then, which was to marry their little daughters off early. Think about it. GOD established in the Bible the legal age of fighting in wars for men at 20 years old. Based on this Biblical barometer and not human barometer, it is safe to speculate that Mary may have been a young woman of about 18-20 years old.

    There is no evidence of her true age. It is left open for speculation. For any of us to emphatically say Mary’s age was something, is very wrong. Speculation is accepted but to say something is factual based on speculation is very wrong. Especially when referring to the Bible.
