Getting Into The Bible: Ben Hur

Friday 18th November 2016

Ben-Hur is the epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. Stripped of his title, separated from his family and the woman he loves (Nazanin Boniadi), Judah is forced into slavery. After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but finds redemption.

Based on Lew Wallace’s timeless novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, the recent release of the film (September 2016) also stars Morgan Freeman and Rodrigo Santoro.

The film and the resources available will help young people think about the themes of faith, hope and redemption as well as relevant issues, such as the challenges of growing up, and being change-makers in the world.

Free resources including video clips, images and leaders guides are available to download from benhur.damarismedia.com
