    Saw the new movie this afternoon. It is the story of the resurrection, as seen through the eyes of the Roman military man charged with finding Christ's body. Very well done - highly recommended!

    It does look intriguing. Most movies about Jesus focus on his life and crucifixion and treat the resurrection as an afterthought, typically 2 minutes or so tacked onto the end of the movie. This entire movie is about the resurrection. Secular critics are giving it good reviews.

    A number of Roman military men were sound asleep during the resurrection of Christ.

    Two different church members have told me about it. They loved it and encouraged me to go see it.

    A deacon and adult Sunday School teacher from our church saw it and highly recommended it. He has excellent discernment. Wife and I might see it Tuesday.

    Without giving away anything, the movie does address this in an interesting way.
