I finally finished watching The Bible Movie on DVD. Parts of it were pretty good. I especially liked the Abraham stories. I would have skipped Samson and gone with Elijah and Elisha. Jesus and his disciples were pretty well done also. Overall it was a very well done movie.
Of course, there were lots of things I would have directed differently had it been my movie, but there was one scene that was absolutely terrible. After the stoning of Stephen, the apostles were splitting up and leaving Jerusalem. John and Peter were parting, and Peter said to John, "Good luck."
Oh, please! The apostles believed in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the presence of Jesus, not in the gods of luck and fortune. That was so bad I had to stop watching for a little while. How about a little "the Lord be with you"? or I will be praying for you. But "good luck"? Good grief! They were going out to change the world in the name of Jesus. What did luck have to do with anything? "Good luck" was secularism creeping into the dialog of the movie.
