Ben Hur | Russ Matthews

The new Ben Hur movie is out.  It is in the cinemas at the moment. 


Russ Matthews is one of my movie mates.  He works for City Bible Forum helping business people in the CBD better get to know Jesus.


But I like talking movies with him.

When I heard this new version of Ben-Hur was coming out - I felt really worried!  Did they ruin the story?


Does the new version have cinematic significance?  Does it have faith significance?


What about the expression ‘Bigger than Ben Hur’?  Will people still be saying that after the new movie experience?
