John 15:13 "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Recently I was sent a DVD to watch and review and I have to say that this has been a difficult review for me to write. The main reason is because I am a little slow and I did not really get the full point of the DVD until today~~~a full 8 days after I watched the DVD. So let me tell you a little about this DVD that had me stumped for so long.
MOST (czech for "The Bridge") is a visually enthralling, 21st-century parable about a loving father, his young son, and the fateful day when they attempt to head off an impending rail disaster. Hundreds of passengers aboard an oncoming steam train are completely unaware of the danger that looms as they head toward an open drawbridge. A desperate young woman witnesses an act of mercy beyond imagination, changing her life forever - and the lives of all who see this story. Both heart wrenching and glorious, MOST vividly portrays the greatest offering of love, sacrifice, hope, and forgiveness to man.
This is a 33 minute video that illustrates the love of a father to his son. John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life." I don't know about you, but I have thought that God sending Jesus to Earth just so that He could die for our sins was probably easy because, well He is God! It just doesn't seem the same as if you or I were to be in that same situation so it makes it a little harder to understand. Now I am not completely ignorant, and I do believe in the Bible and accept it, but as humans we tend to question these kinds of things. Or at least I do. That is what makes this DVD so inspiring and awesome.
Now I do have to be honest and say that I had a hard time keeping up with the story line. I wish it had been made a little differently because it did not seem to fall into place from beginning to end. And the fact that it is filmed in Czech so you have to read the subtitles makes it a little difficult to watch as well. But even with those two "cons" the "pro" of this movie makes up the difference.
All through the movie the one thing that is clear is that this man loves his son, and his son loves him. So when the dad has to make the decision to let his son die in order to let the other people live, it really brings to life the message in John 3:16. It brings it into perspective for those of us that have to question life. I recommend this video for church groups or families. It is truly inspiring!
