Risen, the movie

The wife and I just watched Risen (2016) with Joseph Fiennes as Clavius, a Roman tribune charged by Pontius Pilate with finding the body of Jesus. The movie is well done: fairly faithful to the text of the Gospels, and very faithful to the gospel story in general. Clavius serves as the viewpoint character, a sort of “fly on the wall” to Jesus’ post-resurrection time and his ascension.
