Sermon on the Mount segment from the 1961 movie "King of Kings"

A nice job with the Great Commandments.

Yeah, even though this movie was made 2 years after I was born, it remains my favorite movie about Jesus. The only exception would be that "The Passion" movie gives a more graphic portrayal of the crucifixion. However, I believe that Jesus' greatest torture was not the physical pain He went through, which in itself was unspeakably and unimaginably horrible; but rather, for the first time since eternity past, God the Son was separated from God the Father, because of taking on our sin. The Son took on the Father's wrath for us. When Jesus said in His prayer in the Garden, "Take this cup from me," He was not speaking of the physical pain; He was speaking of the cup of the Father's wrath.
