During this review of Last Days in the Desert, Jeff, Dylan and Adam dive deep into their own Christologies as they debate this film’s intentions and portrayal of Jesus. Specifically the humanity of Jesus. Is this film compelling enough to be on the upper tier of Jesus films, or does it fail to reach divine status? Find out on this episode of Divine Cinema.
Last Days in the Desert Review (00:04:56)
Ratings and Redeemed Perspectives (01:14:33)
Last Days in the Desert speculates on what might have happened in the final days of Jesus’ 40-day journey into the wilderness. After days of solitude Jesus stumbles upon a family. A father, son and mother who is deathly ill. Jesus decides to stay with the family for a few days before returning for the start of his ministry. It is during this time we see Jesus conflicted about his coming role as Messiah. As Jesus finds himself in the role of peacemaker to a family with divided interests while also in a constant back and forth about the goodness of God with the devil.
