Magnificently cast, acted, filmed and produced, the film conveys the resurrection with surprising freshness and insight.
– Peter Meadows, Former Director of Bible Society

In the age of skepticism Risen shines. The story is original and invites the audience to discover for themselves who Christ is. Joseph Fiennes delivers a powerful performance, one full of emotion that compels you to want to find out more.
– Rev Peterson Feital, Minister to the Creative Industries for the Anglican Diocese of London

Discussion resources

Risen (in cinemas 18th March) tells the story of a Roman soldier investigating the mysterious disappearance of the body of Jesus of Nazareth. Clavius (Joseph Fiennes), a powerful Roman military tribune, and his aide, Lucius (Tom Felton), are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumours of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.

These free guides are here to help you dig deeper into the issues raised by the film.
