The Passion by Brickfilm: An Alternative to the Passion of the Christ for Children

We own The Passion of the Christ movie, but I haven't watched it this year. The scourging scene and all the abuse to Christ is so graphic I dread to even think of it. So yesterday I read the meditation in A Doctor at Calvary, but haven't and may not watch the film. It certainly is no movie for children!

But the Brickfilm movie can help them understand what Christ suffered to save us. Parents should preview the movie and consider how appropriate it is for a given child. Some older children are so sensitive that even this depiction would be upsetting. But then, the crucifixion should be upsetting! Anyone not moved by the sufferings of Christ would not be moved by the murder of babies!
