The Movie RISEN tells the story of a Roman inquiry into the reported resurrection of Jesus Christ, who was called by his disciples the "Messiah" and sardonically by Pontius Pilate, "King of the Jews".
The Pharisees and scribes of the day told the Roman prefect, Pontius Pilate, that the followers of Jesus were claiming he would rise again in three days, and so requested to have soldiers guard his tomb to prevent his followers stealing the body and claim he had risen.
The order was given and the soldiers were posted, but three days after the crucifixion, the tomb was found to be empty. Pontius Pilate orders his Tribune (Joseph Fiennes) to lead an investigation in order to recover the corpse of Jesus and arrest those disciples who perpetrated the crime.
The centurion soon finds himself on a road of discovery learning who Jesus was and why the Jewish leaders felt threatened.
The Beautiful aspects of this movie, the millennium of believers have wondered and been intuitive about what the eye witnesses would have seen. What has been seen in science and history is included in the discovery process.
Biblical narratives are included out of sequence and miracles occur. Actually this is Mark 16:20. Renew us in the Love we know for Jesus!
Alive - Jesus is alive. He is not more mystical than Love. The believers of the ones Jesus calls "Blessed to see" are the people we witness today who Love the Risen Christ - Jesus.
