When a movie about the life of Christ is shown, based on what the New Testement Gospels of the Bible presents, such as for example, "The Passion Of The Christ", it is not only a meditation on the passion, death, and ressurection of Jesus, but also gives Jesus glory. When I see this movie, I do not see the actor Jim Caviezel who vanishes when I do watch that movie, but Jesus who showed his great love for sinners by suffering and dying on the cross. The passage in Philippians 2:6-11, which was an early Christian hymm, shows the depth of Christ's love. Vs. 8 says that "he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross".So this passage proves that the passion, death on the Cross and ressurection of Jesus goes back to the beginings of Christian history. On the issue of both the book and the movie of "The DaVinci Code" is that it is not just the falsehoods that are made about Jesus, but it gives honor to gnostic gospels that have long been proven false. Also it is movies like "The DaVinci Code" that do not give the needed glory to Jesus, so I do not see nor waste my time reading the book.
