Special thanks to Tethergroup for sponsoring this post.
I'm so pleased to introduce you to an extraordinary new film about a year in the life of Jesus at age seven. The Young Messiah will be in theaters on March 11th, making for a perfect family movie night during Lent. Inspired by Scripture and rooted in history, this movie is perfect for families of all ages.
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. Heading into this film the producers knew this was a fresh take on Jesus and the Holy family. The filmmakers quickly realized Mary and Joseph faced many of the same problems as parents today.
As the mom of a teen, it's a relief to know that even Joseph and Mary had some challenging moments when it came to parenting Jesus.
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.
