The much-anticipated epic remake, ‘Ben-Hur’, is now showing in theatres. SCH shares exciting words from Pastor Sammy Rodriguez, President of the Hispanic Evangelical Association, who tells of the powerful message of ‘Ben-Hur’.
‘Ben-Hur’ is the inspiring story of Judah Ben-Hur (played by Jack Huston, American Hustle), a prince betrayed by his adopted brother. Judah is banished from everything he knows and everyone he loves. When he falls into slavery, he spends years away and plots his eventual revenge. But when he’s freed and returns home, he instead finds redemption and forgiveness.
Also starring in ‘Ben-Hur’ is Toby Kebbell (Warcraft ) as Messala, Sofia Black-D’Elia (The Messengers) as Tirzah, Rodrigo Santoro (The 33) as Jesus, and Morgan Freeman (Now You See Me 2) as Sheik Elderim.
Several notable pastors have weighed in with their impressions of this spectacular movie produced by the talented team of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. See what a few are saying.
“Ben-Hur is one of history’s great stories of redemption, and this reimagining of that iconic tale will be a blessing to millions.”
—Dr. David Jeremiah, Pastor, Shadow Mountain Community Church
“The story line was remarkable, significant and beyond powerful. The imagery is masterful and fulfilling. Consequently, the undeniable message of family, forgiveness and even tough-love, beautifully invaded my spirit. For the preacher and teacher, Ben Hur will evoke messages and sermons. For the hopeless and doubt-filled, Ben Hur will inspire change.”
—Dr. Marvin L.Sapp
Pastor, Multi-platinum selling recording artist, Global leader
