Exodus: Gods and Kings

Blockbusters Reviewed

Welcome to the 5th edition of My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts.  Last fornight I reviewed Die Hard (1988) and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984).  Picking this fortnight’s film/series was difficult; it was originally going to be Die Hard 2 (1990), then Ant-Man (2015), then The Ten Commandments (1956), before last week seeing and finally settling on:

  • Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014), rated M for mature themes, violence and coarse language

That is the Australian rating; in the United States, it’s rated PG-13 for violence including battle sequences and intense images.  As usual, following the review will be the film’s trailer, and a clip.  As usual, here’s the disclaimer:

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD.  PROCEED AT OWN RISK.

The Creator’s Name

J-M's History Corner

There is raging debate today as to what is the true Name of our Creator, whom many simply call “God” or “The Lord”, generic titles that could apply to any deity.  There is also a lesser debate as to the true Name of God’s Son, our Messiah, commonly known by the incorrect Anglicised “Jesus”.  The letter “J” did not exist as a separate sound until the 1500s, before which it was just another way to write “I” or “Y”.

The most popular version of the Creator’s Name is Yahweh, while others say Yahuah, Yahveh, Jehovah or Yehovah.  In each case, His shortened Name is Yah.  The most popular version of the Messiah’s Name is Yeshua, while others say Yahshua, Yahushua, Yahusha, or Yehoshua.  The Name of the Messiah is largely viewed as being dependent on the Name of the Father.  So, what is the truth?  The following video discusses the…
