Son of God movie

What is our reaction to the accuracy of "The Bible" miniseries ... and to the upcoming Son of God movie coming out in February.

Answer: 

There is no official WELS reaction to productions like “The Bible” miniseries.  You will find reactions posted by WELS pastors and others on blogs and other forums. 

As might have been expected, there were pluses and minuses to “The Bible” miniseries.  Scriptwriters take great liberties in adapting the content of the Bible to a screenplay.  One can hope that viewers of such a miniseries will be interested in reading the Bible for themselves—and doing so without the filter of other people’s biases.  Time will tell how accurate “The Son of God” movie turns out to be.
