Gospels that remind me of Movies
Certain Gospels remind me of certain movies:
1. The Gospel of Mark - The Bourne Identity. I think Phil Harland is right. The whole plot of Mark's Gospel is dominated by "so who is this guy?"
2. The Gospel of Matthew - Schindler's List. One guy stands up to the bad guys on behalf of the Jewish people.
3. The Gospel of Luke/Acts - Ben Hur. Both are set in the Greco-Roman world and Palestine and touch upon Christian themes. BH won a mammoth 12 Oscars that has never been matched and Luke-Acts is certainly an epic of similar proportions.
4. The Gospel of John - ET. Think about, a stranger comes from out of space, visits earth, and brings a family together. I sobbed my eyes out as a kid when I saw this.
