Magdalena: Through Her Eyes

resized magdalena usa final With Easter just around the corner, I was very pleased with the opportunity to review Magdalena: Through Her Eyes, a movie from Campus Crusade for Christ. Taking the original Jesus Film and adding new footage for women by women, the Magdalena: Through Her Eyes DVD portrays the story of Christ from the eyes of Mary Magdalene.

This movie is the story of Jesus from a woman's perspective. As she followed Jesus, Mary Magdalene witnessed changed lives, miracles and His tenderness toward women. Her own life was radically transformed when Jesus healed her and gave her a new purpose for living. You can view a preview of the movie here.

The girls and I sat down one morning last week and watched this film.  I found it to be a beautifully done retelling of Jesus’ life on earth and very much appreciated seeing it from the perspective of a fellow woman.  Sometimes we women tend to minimize our worth here on earth when there’s so much we could be doing to live up to our full potential.  It was amazing to experience what it might have been like to actually live during the time of Christ and be a follower of him.  It really made me think and it stirred up some great conversations with my girls.

I spent some time at the website. I read some of the info and watched the trailer. I love how it said in the trailer about the women of the bible being like the women of today. God created the heart of the woman in one way. Even time can't change that. Even though it's important to look to the modern woman for guidance and reflection, it's just as important to look to the women in the bible for the same. There is much to be learned from them and our hearts are strung the same. This would be an amazing gift to share with my family and friends. Blessings,

I think it is neat that they have a list of ideas to make it a movie night with other people, a schedule of events per se.

Sounds like a great movie.

What an amazing movie this looks like. God knew what I needed at this moment. I've felt bad lately because I haven't been able to to it all. I put so much on myself and feel that I have to be supermom and superwife.

I know many women who would benefit from this. Mainly ME!

Heidi, thanks for pointing us to the movie's website. I had no idea there would be so many resources! Excited about possibly sharing the movie with my friends. If I don't win, I might just have to order it!

Heidi, Thank you for sharing this powerful movie with others! I watched some of the videos and looked around the website. The trailer made me weep. What a reminder that He is not looking for perfection but came to grow us, save us, mold us so that one day we could be like Him - perfect! This is a giveaway that the winner needs to share with others! Love you sister!
