“AMAZING DEPICTION OF OUR SAVIOR.”
"Son Of God is fantastic! This is an opportunity to see this amazing depiction of the life of our savior is coming soon...to a theater near you. Don't miss it. And don't miss this opportunity to introduce Jesus to a friend, relative or neighbor who may never accept an invitation to church."
“ENGAGING AND COMPELLING.”
"The movie, Son of God, based on The Bible, the made-for-TV series, is an engaging and compelling presentation of the story of Jesus, the Son of God among us. It is a joy to watch this film bring alive the pages of the Gospel and help us see what those who lived at the time of Jesus experienced. Personally, I would recommend to individuals, but particularly to families this wonderful story of the Son of God in order to be inspired all over again with the story of God's love for us."
"AN EPIC WORK."
"Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's feature film Son of God proves that when talent and passion collide, the outcome is spectacular. Having spent time with them on the set, Victoria and I witnessed firsthand the deep and abiding passion they possess for God's Word. Every aspect of this production from the acting to the poignant storytelling is accomplished with excellence. Mark and Roma have succeeded in doing what few before them have done; they have produced an epic work that tells the Story of Jesus and touches the heart".
"THE BEST I'VE EVER SEEN."
"I've probably seen most, if not all, of the films about Jesus produced in the past 50 years. This one stands alone, in a class by itself, as the best I've ever seen. Brilliantly produced with stunning cinematography, a Hans Zimmer score and academy-worthy acting, it stands head-and-shoulder above the rest.
Son of God draws you into the story from the start. Not since the release of "The Passion of The Christ" ten years ago have I been this excited about a movie…Son of God brings to the Big screen the Story of Jesus. Here we see the wonder of His birth, The power of His mission, The loving sacrifice of His death but most importantly, we see The Eternal Hope of His resurrection. I am thrilled that 20th century Fox are distributing this film and know it will be a blessing to millions when it opens in theaters all across America this Spring."
"Each one of us is a son or daughter of God. It is a wonderful, awesome reality. The movie Son of God is a very important movie because it gives us the opportunity to realize God's presence in our own lives, and that we are children of God. The film is extraordinary for my ministry."
"CENTERPIECES THE REASON FOR OUR FAITH, JESUS CHRIST."
"I'm very excited about this movie and, as a church, we're very excited about it as well. I'm hoping that our church and all of our churches can get behind this wonderful production. Maybe we could buy out entire theaters, maybe we could host movie events. We're already getting behind this movie in social media opportunities. Perhaps you could buy tickets for members of your church. This is a rare opportunity to get behind the movie that centerpieces the greatest reason for our faith, Jesus Christ. I am personally getting behind it. I hope you will get behind it as well. God bless you and may God bless this movie."
"This epic masterpiece tells the world changing story of Jesus and inspires us to love and live for others just as He did.”
“YOU WILL BE ENTHRALLED, ENCOURAGED AND INSPIRED.”
"I believe the audience will be enthralled, encouraged and inspired by the movie Son of God."
“SON OF GOD WILL SPEAK TO YOUR HEART AND NOURISH YOUR SOUL.”
"Whether you have known Christ for many years, or you are looking to meet him for the first time, 'Son of God' is a movie that will speak to your heart and nourish your soul. This is a film that does not simply tell you about Christ, but puts you in the midst of his life, allowing you to see firsthand his public ministry, his love for humanity, and the death he suffered that we might have life eternal."
"IT'S A GIFT!"
"Son of God fills the big screen with two catalytic elements; the passion of the cross and the purpose of the empty tomb, forgiveness and eternal life. This film informs, inspires and imparts not just a message but more importantly it contextualizes the quintessential "hope" narrative; Christ, the hope of glory. Accordingly, it is not just a production worth watching but even more, it's a gift worth experiencing!"
“ES UN REGALO PARA EL ALMA!”
"El Hijo de Dios llena la pantalla grande con dos elementos catalíticos, la pasión de la cruz y la promesa de la tumba vacía: el perdón y vida eterna. Esta película no solamente informa, inspira y imparte pero aún más sirve para firmar la narrativa más importante, Cristo la esperanza de gloria. De acuerdo, esta obra no es sencillamente una producción. Este regalo para el alma y el corazón es nada menos que una experiencia."
"YOU FEEL LIKE JESUS IS ALIVE."
"In this movie, you feel like Jesus is alive, like He is in your backyard. It feels like the scenes just happened a week ago, and you were there, or you could easily go see Him. Our children are bombarded with so many bad movies and messages. The message of this film is beautiful. It's a movie you can see with the kids, and they will love it. It will help them learn what our Savior and God went through. I encourage you to see this with your kids and your friends. I was amazed how well it was done."
"A TIMELESS GIFT."
"Son of God is a timeless gift of cinema that calls upon people of every faith to stop and reflect on the eternal impact of Jesus Christ, and global impact of Christianity. With its rich production and timely release, Son of God is a wonderful ally in the New Evangelization. I encourage every Catholic to see this film, particularly on opening weekend."
"BRINGS THE BIBLE TO LIFE."
"It brings to life the Bible in a visibly beautiful way. It is a wonderful tool for the new evangelization. I'd encourage you to go see the film, and also to take a friend with you."
"EXPERIENCE JESUS IN A NEW WAY."
"Unlike any film of the past decade, this Biblical epic brings Christ to life in dazzling ways. From the powerful acting, to the stunning visual effects, to the moving orchestral score of Hans Zimmer, you'll experience the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus in new and illuminating ways."
"SPIRITUALLY MOVING EXPERIENCE."
"Watching Son of God is a profoundly spiritually moving experience. I am convinced millions of lives around the world will be deeply impacted by this movie. Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have given a huge lift to the global Church."
"THE WORD BECAME FLESH."
A word is the expression of the inward thoughts of a person. When Jesus, the Word of God, became flesh, He was the outward expression of the inward thoughts of God. We have the opportunity, to be apart of something bigger than life. The Son of God Movie has brought together the finest cinematography and greatest creativity so we can see and hear the thoughts of God. When you complete the film, you will conclude with others that Jesus was and is the Son of God.
I believe that Son of God is the finest film produced regarding the Life Of Jesus Christ in the last forty to fifty years. When you walk away, having seen the Son of God, you will understand the love of God, wrapped up in the Word that became flesh: the outward thoughts of God. I want to encourage you to participate in the soon release of movie entitled, “Son of God.” Tell your fellow-leaders about it! Let’s mobilize millions on February 28, 2014 across North American to see and hear the thoughts of God!
"BROUGHT LIFE TO THE SCRIPTURES."
"As a Catholic in viewing the movie I was touched by so many scenes that brought to life what I already experienced interiorly through the Scriptures. However, I was particularly touched by the portrayal of the last supper. For me as a Catholic, it was extremely important that this episode be portrayed in its fullness. I am grateful for all who have worked on this movie."
"CONNECT EMOTIONALLY WITH THE BIBLE LIKE NEVER BEFORE."
"It is not easy to adapt Bible stories into cinema. The full impact and meaning of Scripture is often lost on the screen. But SON OF GOD is special. This movie allows us to see, hear, and experience the Bible in new ways. Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have invited us to connect emotionally with the Bible like never before. After watching SON OF GOD, I believe my congregation will have a renewed view of love. It will challenge them to spread the love of Christ. They will have a renewed desire to tell people about how much God loves them."
"FORCES US TO RE-EXAMINE OUR LIVES WITH A NEW PERSPECTIVE."
"SON OF GOD will undoubtedly have a big impact on those that don’t yet know Jesus. It will also have a huge impact on people of all levels of faith. This film forces us to re-examine our lives with a new perspective. When SON OF GOD hit theaters, I'd encourage you to bring others with you and be empowered to proudly share Jesus Christ."
"Most Sensitive, caring depiction of the story of Jesus."
"The story of the crucifixion and the way it has been used through the centuries has never been good for the Jews. Having said that, 'Son of God' is the most sensitive, caring depiction of the story of Jesus that I have ever seen or will ever see. The producers have done everything possible to put the events into historical, political and psychological context. We at ADL value their efforts."
“Experience the Gospel anew.”
“The movie, ‘Son of God’, seeks to make present in a powerful and engaging way the person of Jesus Christ. This film can benefit the people of God as an expression of the New Evangelization, especially during the season of Lent as we prepare to celebrate our Easter salvation in the Lord. This movie has a great potential for leading people to a closer understanding of Jesus Christ and could help those who see it come closer to an authentic encounter with God among us. One of the archdiocese’s important priorities is the work of the New Evangelization. “Son of God” is an excellent example of media’s power to experience the Gospel anew, helping us to fall in love with Jesus once again.”
“Inspiring account of Christ.”
“I was impressed with the inspiration, quality and accuracy of the production. It is my prayerful hope that people of all faith traditions will go see this film and discuss and reflect upon the inspiring account of the life, love and sacrifice of Christ. As Catholics approach Ash Wednesday and the Lenten season, prayerful reflection regarding the life and sacrifices of Christ is of central importance. Viewing this inspiring film is a wonderful way to center our reflection as we enter this contemplative and holy period.”
“Son of God is fantastic. I really encourage you to go to your local theater and see it because it really brings the person of Jesus Christ so alive. It makes his humanness comes out in such a beautiful way and also the fact that he is the Son of God and how that was revealed to the people of his day and is still being revealed to us today. This is a way to re-connect with the person of Jesus. I hope you come to the theater and bring someone with you. It will be a great treat for yourself and a great way to begin the Lenten season.”
“Gripping and challenging.”
“Son of God is gripping and challenging. Powerful and gentle.”
“Energizes our faith.”
“It is my sincerest hope that this movie reminds all who watch of the love that Jesus Christ has for all of us, energizes our faith and leads us all to a deeper relationship with the Lord and once again remind us He is the Son of God.”
“It is a remarkable film, and I can for see many ways in which it could be used for our works of evangelization in our own time. Many people, especially our young people, are drawn to the visual in their lives, and this film is a superb use of modern filmmaking to capture the imaginations and the hearts of all.”
“Powerful and beautiful”
“‘Son of God’ is a powerful and beautiful movie which I hope and pray will be humbly watched by Christians and non-Christians across the world as a bridge for respectful dialogue. Most religions share a core Golden Rule: 'Do unto others as you would have others do unto you'. We are all sons and daughters of God, called to be vessels of healing balm to a wounded world tired of theological and dogmatic dogfights that too often lead to despicable carnage in the name of our respective and limited understanding of God. We are all, irrespective of the nametag we wear, called to be people of compassion, humility, justice and gentleness. These are the fruits of love and, in the end, they are all that matter. Why? Because God is LOVE.”
“Can be used to meditate and reflect during this season of Lent.”
“In SON OF GOD, through a cinematic recreation of events, we get to witness the sacrifices Jesus endured for our sins. The scenes of the movie, particularly of Our Lord’s Passion, bear a striking resemblance to the Stations of the Cross, and can be used as a way to meditate and reflect on His self-giving loving sacrifice for us during this season of Lent.”
“He died for me on the cross.”
“What I think of the film is that it is a tremendous, tremendous film. I mean it is something that we must see, something that everybody - the whole world would have to see. Because it tells you why Christ came to earth to die for us on the cross to give life to those who were condemned and sinning. He died for our sins. That’s what I would tell everybody. My favorite thing about the movie is when He says ‘God forgive them because they do not know what they are doing. ‘ The movie reminds me why He died for me on the cross.”
