Man, I think that the story of Ammon was the best!( hah-nubz) u will only get it if u r lds.

Yeah, it's amazing how many prophecies are in the Old Testament that are fullfilled in the New Testament. I suppose that was a silly question, I would expect your favorite to be Jesus' death and resurrection . The Beatitudes are good, lots to be learned from them.(And the whole Sermon on the Mount, really). I think a favorite of mine is The story of Lazarus.

Wow. Tough question. I think it's amazing to see how God promised Adam and Eve in Genesis that there would come a savior, and Jesus fulfilled all the Old Testament prophecies. But the death and resurrection are probably the most important: Christ humbled himself and died to pay the debt for our disobedience and reconcile us with God, rose again on the third day, and is now in heaven preparing a place for us. That is the most incredible thing ever. I also like Matt. 5. What is/are your favorite?
Report as inappropriate
Yeah but at that point I think you probably cross the line from sensation-se e k i n g to life-risking . Or maybe people were comforted by being around Jesus(althou g h it seems like not many people had that mentality so early in his ministry, even the disciples). But I guess you're right, not really something we can know for sure. So, whilst on this general subject, what's your favorite story or event concerning Jesus?

Good thing he wasn't a normal man! And I'm guessing the crowd wouldn't stick around too long. Then again, a lot of the people following him at that point were probably sensation-se e k e r s . I dunno. One of those things we'll never know, I guess. And I think Ben Hur did touch his mother and sister (much to their dismay) trying to get them to Christ in the movie. It was kind of an I believe in this man so much that I'm willing to risk everything in order to get you to him for healing, thing.

Yeah, for a normal man, it would honestly just be considered foolishness to touch a leper. I'm trying to imagine how the people around Jesus reacted to it. Right before he heals the leper, it says that crowds of people were following him. Then again, I wonder how many of the people actually stayed. If a leper came running up to Jesus, I have a feeling most people would have fled. I'm trying to remember if Ben-Hur touched his mother and sister, it seems like he did actually, I can't recall.

Exactly. That's why it freaked me out so badly. Not only do you know your days are numbered, but you are completely cast out of society: friends, family, everything gone. That's why when Jesus healed the leper in Matthew 8 it was so incredible: in verse three it says Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, I am willing; be cleansed. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. I never really payed attention to the fact that he TOUCHED him till after seeing Ben Hur.

Haha yeah, leave it up to Hollywood to create nonexistent love stories. I honestly think the worst part of leprosy would be how you're treated. Regardless of who you were and what social status you had, leprosy immediately put you beneath even dogs. Being faced with near-certain death would've been bad enough as it was.

The movie Ben Hur, and its scores, are surpassed by none
Best scene and score from BH is when Judah enters Nazareth with other condemned men about to die of thirst and Christ gives him water and the power to go on. There is no more powerful scene ever made.

I think a lot of the cultural details were fairly accurate, but I don't think the whole movie was completely accurate to the Bible. They invented a love interest for then-prince Moses, and had young Joshua be a stone cutter (with a love interest). So Ben Hur is likely more accurate historically . And the reason the leprosy freaked me out so badly was because I know people used to actually go through that. And the book does a great job showing the cultural horror of the disease.

Oh, nice; I love Charlton Heston. Yeah, the leprosy parts were kind of creepy, but were horrifyingly accurate as well. As a matter of fact, I think Ben-Hur, in and of itself, was fairly accurate all around. I can't quite remember since I haven't seen it in a year or so. Do you know how accurate The Ten Commandments was? I want to watch it either way, but I'm just wondering.
Report as inappropriate
They actually both have Charlton Heston as the main character! (And the same actress plays his mother in both movies, if I recall correctly.) Oooh trying to pick is hard. I like the colors and cinematograp h y in TTC, but BH has a grittier feel. It really comes down to personal preference, I suppose. I'm going to go with The Ten Commandments again (I think I'm probably biased because I saw it first.) When I first saw Ben Hur as a young teen, the leprosy parts freaked me out pretty badly. >.
Report as inappropriate
Oh yeah, I forgot there was a book for Ben-Hur, I need to read that. I guess I have the same reasoning for being more partial to the Ben-Hur score; because I've actually seen the movie. I need to watch The Ten Commandments too, though. So you like The Ten Commandments ' score better, what about the movies?(Sinc e you've seen both.)
Report as inappropriate
I have seen both and love them both: I saw The Ten Commandments first and have nostalgic memories of watching it as a kid (hence the preference for the music score). I saw Ben Hur when I was a little older: the book is really good too.
Report as inappropriate
I have indeed heard the Ben Hur score, and I love it(incredibl e movie too). In fact, I think I like the Ben Hur score more than The Ten Commandments ; albeit I've probably heard more of the Ben Hur score though. Have you seen either of the movies?
Report as inappropriate
Have you heard the score for Ben Hur? It is also pretty good. (Though I personally like The Ten Commandments score a little bit better.)

In my opinion, it makes studying impossibly hard. I can't think for more than a moment without starting to hum along with this song. Ah, but I can't complain, Bernstein is a genius. Both this score and Exodus have urged me to look into more of his stuff.

This makes studying biology epic! I'm like, DIATOMS! SUBGROUP CHROMalveola t a DUH DUM DUH DUM!! :D
