Hey, come on in. Admission is free. Grab a bowl of popcorn (extra butter, of course) and find a seat smack dab in the middle - It’s time for Finding Christ in Cinema, episode 143.

I’m Michael, I’m Brenden.

Join us and together we’ll dig deeper into the silver-screen classics of yesteryear as well as the box-office hits of today, we’ll take a closer look at the stories they tell, and see if we find the face of Jesus looking back.

We’re gonna explore the deeper meanings of these films; the plots and their twists; the characters and their choices; and how we can relate them to the gospel of salvation, and ultimately our Christian walk.

You are tuned in to Finding Christ in Cinema on the GCTNetwork.

Beast has gone through some serious stuff:

"Elegiac Lament" - a poetic form and content
-- Expressing sorrow often for something now past.
-- Three parts

Aristotle's Pity and Fear

So rewatching the film through this lens helps me be more open to receiving him - more compassionate and sympathetic.

mhCompassion Breeds Compassion Breeds Love

Compassion 1 (Luke 10:22, the Good Samaritan; also Lk. 7:13 )

Strong’s Number: g4697. σπλαγχνίζομαι splagchnizomai; middle voice from 4698; to have the bowels yearn, i.e. (figuratively) feel sympathy, to pity: — have (be moved with) compassion

AV (12) - have compassion 7, be moved with compassion 5

Only used in the synoptic Gospels

MIDDLE VOICE

http://www.greek-language.com/grammar/20.html

The voice of a verb indicates the role that its grammatical subject plays in relation to the action or state of being expressed by the verb. The middle voice is used mainly to imply that the subject benefits or suffers directly from the action expressed by the verb. It is often the case, though not always, that the subject also represents the cause of that action.

Compassion 2 (Philippians 2:1, Mind of Christ Jesus)

Stong’s Number g3628. οἰκτιρμός oiktirmos; from 3627; pity: — mercy.

AV (5) - mercy 5 [NASB (5) mercies 3, compassion 2]

[from g3627. οἰκτείρω oikteirō; also (in certain tenses) prolonged; οἰκτερέω oiktereō; from οἶκτος oiktos (pity); to exercise pity: — have compassion on.

Romans 12:1 NASB
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

Mercy (Luke 10:37, The Good Samaritan)

Stong’s Number g1656. ἔλεος eleos; of uncertain affinity; compassion (human or divine, especially active): — (+ tender) mercy.

AV (28) - mercy 28

1. mercy: kindness or good will towards the miserable and the afflicted, joined with a desire to help them

A. of men towards men: to exercise the virtue of mercy, show one's self merciful

See Matthew 9:13 - I desire compassion (Grk. eleos - mercy), and not sacrifice
Luke 10:30-37 The Good Samaritan

Luke 10:33 NASB
But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion,

Luke 7:11-17 The Widow’s Son

Luke 7:13 NASB
When the Lord saw her, He felt compassion for her, and said to her, “Do not weep.”

Matthew 9:10-13 NASB
Then it happened that as Jesus was reclining at the table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, “Why is your Teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners?” But when Jesus heard this, He said, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire compassion, and not sacrifice,’ for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

KEY TEXT

Hosea 6:6 YLT
For kindness I desired, and not sacrifice, And a knowledge of God above burnt-offerings.

PS Philip Comment on A MONSTER CALLS: Parables and Healing | FCC 142Hey guys, great movie and great job! I think Brenden's thoughts on the Wicked Queen parable were excellent, and makes much sense. One thing that I get is how the story illustrates justice. Many people might say the Wicked Queen wasn't guilty of the murder she was accused of, but she was probably guilty of plenty of other stuff, so her punishment was okay. Time and time again we see God's concern for justice throughout the Bible, and only He is holy enough to dispense perfect justice. As beings created in His image, it's important for us to pursue justice to the best of our abilities, and the monster's perspective on the Wicked Queen was just indeed. It's not our place as a society to convict someone of a crime they did not commit as punishment for crimes we suppose they got away with.

As for Jeff Nichols, I agree with Scott that his films have some great Christian themes to explore. And I think Michael will really enjoy TAKE SHELTER, LOVING, & MIDNIGHT SPECIAL in particular. The last of those pays homage to some recent film history, and has some cool science fiction elements. Also, Scott appearing on the show with you guys would be fun to hear!

Thanks for the show guys! #muhweeladgimli
