Jesus in Films: Representation, Misrepresentation and Denial of Jesus’Agony in Gospels

Author:Chandra Han Date:March 27,2019 Hits:

Abstract

Films about Jesus have been produced abundantly since 1897-2015, but the attempts to examine Jesus’ agony in these films seem to be undermined, particularly the examination on whether they represent, misrepresent, or deny the Gospels and or the Apocryphal Gospel. This paper will examine several films on Jesus since 1900-2015 to figure out in which film Jesus’ agony represent the Gospels or the Apocryphal Gospels. The demonstration will be done in three steps. The first step is the examination the significance of Jesus’ agony in Mark Gospel, reformed theology, and the Apocryphal Gospel of Judas. The second step is to examine several films which obviously depict Jesus’ agony in Gethsemane. The third step is to demonstrate the influence of several theological thoughts in portraying Jesus. The conclusion will be provided in the context of justice which is the subtheme of the IICAH, Dubai 2016.
