RISEN The Movie - Review

The world release of RISEN the movie (starring Joseph Fiennes, Tom Felton and MarĂ­a Botto) opens in two weeks time but we had the privilege of seeing it tonight before anyone else in the world. After taking all our phones, we headed into the cinema for a movie which gives a different perspective on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The movie follows a Roman soldier (Claudius Lysias from Acts 23:26??) as he struggles with his responsibilities and the idea of death. Returning from a battle against rebellious Jews, he is tasked with overseeing the burial of Jesus Christ. He gets an unusual sense about the events surrounding Christ's crucifixion. Soon he is faced with a great difficulty when his soldiers who were put on guard duty for the tomb, suddenly go missing following the disappearance of Christ's body from the Roman sealed tomb.

One soldier soon turns up with the priests with a story that he hardly finds plausible - the body has been stolen. It is up to this Roman soldier to find out what really happened. In the process, he discovers the truth that he tries to dismiss. RISEN is a pretty good movie for a Christian movie and is one you should bring some non Christian friends to go and see.

He Did What a Man Ought to Do

All he did was do what any man ought to do. However, in today's society, it seems that men are not stepping up to being the defenders of the weak, the moral pillars of society. As a result, Charles Ramsey is celebrated as a hero when he came to the aid of three women who had been imprisoned in a house for ten years. It is interesting to hear what he had to say. He said that his dad would have whooped him if he did not help the girl. When asked if he felt like a hero, he said he is just an American, a human being, just the definition of a man.

FREE Audiobook - Eric Liddell's Disciplines of the Christian Life

At the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, Rowan Atkinson starred in an orchestra piece of "Chariots of Fire". It is the theme song of the movie based on a famous Christian Olympian who refused to participate in the heats of the 200m Olympic Games event because it was held on the Sunday. Eric Liddell instead took on the 400m event and won the event. Later, he decided to become a missionary in China.

His gospel writings have never really surfaced except for one book called Disciplines of the Christian Life. This audio book can be purchased at or you can download it for free for a limited time from
