I pose those questions to you… is it ok to take an 11-year-old? What is your favorite movie about Jesus? And hopefully a debate starter – do movies about Jesus violate the 2nd Commandment?
My take – I agree with Koukl, that it wouldn’t be appropriate for most 11-year-olds. I liked The Passion of the Christ, as while it may have been a little overdone like Koukl notes it was a graphic scene and I don’t think many other movies about the crucifixion of Christ capture that. I also liked the original languages used, and it was a great reminder of what Christ went through on my behalf. Regarding the 2nd Commandment – movies no, but paintings do.
