Film Bloggers Review: ★★1/2 (2 reviews)


Diinspirasi dari kitab Injil dan berakar dari sejarah, kisah ini merupakaan rekaan sebuah tahun dalam masa kanak-kanak Yesus.

Tetap setia pada karakter Yesus yang diungkapkan dalam Alkitab, The Young Messiah adalah kisah yang menginspirasi tentang masa kecil sang juru selamat untuk seluruh anggota keluarga.

Ketika misteri mengenai keilahian Yesus mulai bergulir di tahun-tahun awal kehidupan-Nya, Ia mencari jawaban dari orangtua-Nya. Tetapi, Maria dan Yusuf yang berusaha untuk melindungi putra mereka, takut untuk mengungkapkan semua yang mereka ketahui. Bagaimana mereka bisa menjelaskan mengenai dunia pada sang pencipta? Bagaimana mereka bisa mengajari sang guru? Bagaimana mereka bisa menolong juru selamat yang datang untuk menyelamatkan mereka?

Ikutilah kisah sang Mesias di masa kecil-Nya di mana Yesus dan keluarga-Nya melakukan perjalanan luar biasa dari Mesir ke Nazaret dan ke Yerusalem—di mana identitas asli-Nya dan takdir-Nya akan diungkapkan.


Inspired by Scripture and rooted in history, this story imagines a year in the boyhood of Jesus.

Remaining true to the character of Jesus revealed in the Bible, The Young Messiah is an inspirational story about the childhood of the Savior for the whole family.

When the mystery of Jesus’ divinity begins to unfold in His early years, He turns to His parents for answers. But Mary and Joseph, in an effort to protect their child, are afraid to reveal all they know. How do you explain the ways of the world to its Creator? How do you teach the Teacher? How do you help the Savior who came to save you?

Follow the young Messiah as He and His family take the extraordinary journey from Egypt to Nazareth and on to Jerusalem – where His true identity and profound destiny are revealed.

ELBERT REYNER (A Cinephile’s Diary)

There are reasons why most filmmakers avoid to tell Jesus’ childhood. Even only at two hours, The Young Messiah feels too long, boring, and flat. The Young Messiah is strictly for a very religious person who can tolerate bad movies and those who are not already familiar with the story. Rating: ★1/2

VINCENT JOSE (The Jose Movie Review)

The Young Messiah told the beginning of a story that might not be the most important nor significant part of Jesus, but has explained quite well about His origin, God’s purpose, and little questions we might ever asked. Rating: ★★★1/2
