Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 11.55.25 PMThis is the first in a trinity of podcasts exploring the intersection of Jesus and film. Think of these as companion podcasts to help you unpack all of the cinematic and theological nuggets.

Round one is Martin Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of ChristBefore diving into the movie, Tripp, Ryan, and Barry talk about Jesus films in general, what it means to interpret a film (especially about Jesus), culture, hermeneutics, and:

  • Why take movies seriously?
  • How not to watch a film about Jesus
  • Why do watching movies affect you differently than other art forms?

And killing or loving, it's all the same. It simply doesn't matter how you want to change things. We don't want them changed.Spoiler alert: this episode contains significant discussion of several scenes from the movie.

If you are like Tripp and have never actually seen The Last Temptation of Christ then you can rent it digitally right now and nerd out with your screen out.
