The Young Messiah opened in theaters last weekend. The film is about a year in the life of Jesus at the age seven. The Young Messiah is inspired by Scripture and rooted in history. However, the Young Messiah isn’t just a story about Jesus, it’s a story about Jesus’ family, what kind of mother was Mary? How was Joseph as a parent? It’s a fresh take on a traditional story that teaches us family can support you and it can protect you no matter what struggle you’re going through. This is an important message for everyone and I hope this message sinks in with my kids. Even though my children argue a lot with each other, I hope they support each other too when their siblings need them to. To celebrate the release of the movie, I’m giving away a pair of AMC movie tickets on my blog. The tickets are good for any film. If there isn’t an AMC theater near you, arrangement can be made for another chain.
About The Young Messiah
Inspired by Scripture and rooted in history, this story imagines a year in the boyhood of Jesus. Remaining true to the character of Jesus revealed in the Bible, The Young Messiah is an inspirational story about the childhood of the Savior for the whole family. When the mystery of Jesus’ divinity begins to unfold in His early years, He turns to His parents for answers. But Mary and Joseph, in an effort to protect their child, are afraid to reveal all they know. How do you explain the ways of the world to its Creator? How do you teach the Teacher? How do you help the Savior who came to save you? Follow the young Messiah as He and His family take the extraordinary journey from Egypt to Nazareth and on to Jerusalem — where His true identity and profound destiny are revealed.
