On Friday July 22 at 7pm we will be showing the movie “Risen” at Highview. This 2016 film follows the Biblical story of the Resurrection, as told through the eyes of a non-believer. A Roman Centurion is tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem. During his mission, his doubts of such a supernatural occurrence peel away as he encounters the Apostles and other historic biblical characters and bears witness to the legendary storied events that followed the Resurrection. A great mystery unfolds during Centurion’s quest to find the body and he is deeply affected by his first-person investigation, as his previous beliefs on the matter are forever altered based on what he’s now witnessed.
This is a great opportunity to invite your friends to Highview and encounter the story of Jesus in a new way. This film is rated PG-13 (for some violent content) and runs 1 hour and 45 minutes. We will start promptly at 7pm so come early and get seated so you don’t miss out on this fascinating film!
