Have you heard about the movie that was just released called “The Young Messiah”? There have been a lot of people talking about it where I live, and I can’t wait to see it. We always think of the stories of Christmas, when Jesus was born, or the stories of the Resurrection, when He gave His life for us. What about the time in between? We have the stories in the bible, which are mostly about His days of teaching others and living a holy life. Did He ever give His parents problems? Did He only want mac-n-cheese for dinner every night like my son? What was Jesus like during those days? Well, now we can get someone’s thoughts on what might have been. Of course, the movie isn’t completely factual, and can’t not be proven to be the exact things that Jesus did….but being able to just let our minds think about His time at this age really makes you love Him even more.
The Young Messiah is not just a story about Jesus. It’s the story about Jesus and his family. Heading into this film the producers knew this was a fresh take on Jesus and the Holy family. The filmmakers quickly realized Mary and Joseph faced many of the same problems as parents today.
