About this course
Through our viewing of some Jesus films, as well as clips from other movies, we will explore the portrayals of Jesus in modern films. By comparing these portrayals to those found in the New Testament Gospels and their modern interpreters, we examine how modern biblical scholarship may (or may not) influence contemporary cinema. Furthermore, we will observe what these films tell us about their makers, their expectations of the audiences, and what roles these films play in shaping them.
