Episode #21 – Apple Box Jesus Movie

In this episode, Lewis and Dan roll out the bad bible translations all over again and have some trouble finding verses. They then play Good Tweet / Bad Tweet, where T.U.L.I.P. gets a make over, and they answer the ever troubling question, “What should I preach on Easter?” They then answer questions about 1 John 5:8 and the Son of God movie. No books were burned during this or any other episode.

One thought on “Episode #21 – Apple Box Jesus Movie

  1. The problem with the movie-Jesus saying that he and his disciples are going to “change the world” is not that it’s untrue. A statement so broad is impossible to disagree with. It’s like having a Creed that reads “I believe in God” in its entirety with no explanation. Did the Incarnation change the world? Yes. Has Christianity changed the world? Yes. Again, those statements are hopelessly broad. The problem is that it’s left purposefully vague so that Jesus can be all things to all people. Your own personal Jesus. And, of course, the most popular misinterpretation of such a statement is that which casts Jesus in the role of social/political meliorist and populist “leader.” A nicer more winsome Karl Marx who renovates the poorly-organized world and makes things “fair.”

    Also, it makes our Lord into a peddler of cheap cliché sound bites. I’m no iconoclast, but when you’re portraying the Son of God, you’d best be careful. I’m not saying that it’s impossible, but it hasn’t been done often. I thought that Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ was incredibly moving. It was carefully and reverently done. But I only watched it once, and I don’t think I can ever watch it again. This Son of God movie sounds like a crock of blasphemous kitsch.
