A Maundy Thursday Tradition

Alyssa and I are currently sitting down to watch Martin Scorcese's The Last Temptation of Christ. Far and away the best Jesus movie ever made. Hands down.

It's the only film depiction of Jesus that I've ever seen that shows a struggling Jesus, and evolving Jesus. And frankly, a crazy Jesus. The Christ of this film adaptation of Nikos Kazantzakis' classic novel is a human with a divine purpose. A political and spiritual radical who defies public expectation—a far cry from the standard docile depiction of Jesus in most Christian films.
