The Movie “Risen”
“Risen” captures the powerful influence of Christ and his followers on a Roman military tribune and is symbolic of the life-changing salvation experience converting the Gentile as well as the Jew. Joseph Fiennes is outstanding as Clavius, the Roman tribune, who is battle weary and weary of life, period. He carries out Pilate’s whims (played by Peter Firth) and has little patience with the Jewish Sanhedrin. Clavius is given the task of finding the hiding disciples, and he does locate Bartholomew, played humorously and charmingly by Joe Manjón. When Clavius demands that Bartholomew spills his knowledge as to the whereabouts of the other disciples, Bartholomew replies, “They are…everywhere!” and he laughs with delight.
The film contains a few head-scratching moments: Barabbas, who was released when Christ was condemned, is speared in the head and killed before Christ even dies on the cross. But, for the most part, the film does a good job in showing that Clavius just can’t explain away some things about Christ, his followers, and that empty tomb.

Saturday Evening Worship, Concerts, & Films , Saturdays at 6:00 pm!
Saturday 7:00 pm weekly Worship and fellowship. Working on Sunday mornings? No problem. There is plenty of opportunity to lift praises to God in song and testimony on Saturday nights! We are inviting you to come, share, and join in in celebrating what our AWESOME GOD is doing in our lives. The Bible tells us we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, (see Heb. 10:25). Please make every opportunity to attend. Sometimes we have a concert, other times a movie, but we always are doing something to lift up the name of Jesus. Many in the community have said they cannot come on Sunday Mornings so this is your opportunity to Worship the King during the evening. We are here to serve the Lord and in doing that serve you! Remember John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life! Find new life in Christ at FBC!
