On one hand, some of the acting and costumes in the Jesus film have always made me cringe, yet I also have an overwhelming appreciation for Scriptural accuracy in films that are straight from the Bible. I do think the additional scenes that have been added to tell the story of Jesus from more of a women's perspective are an improvement. Take a look at a trailer from the film at this link: http://www.magdalenamovie.com/en/index.html
What I really appreciated, though, was the 8 week Bible Study for women that came with this film! Reflections Of Hope presents Jesus as our Pursuer, Forgiver, Power for Living, Deliverer, Provider, Restorer, Living Water, & Friend. In this study, the women are presented the opportunity to view a clip, share their spiritual journey, learn relevant Scripture and how to apply it, and are challenged to go deeper into a relationship with our Savior. This is an excellent study whether you are a believer who simply needs reassurance during a tough time or a seeker who yearns to find the Truth. This would be very well used in a mentoring situation or support group. I highly recommend you check this out for yourself at their website: Magdalena Today.
