Good luck to the makers of “Son of God” [opens Feb. 28], because no matter how carefully or reverently they approach this story,

they're bound to offend someone. It’s the nature of the subject. Nonetheless, since the dawn of cinema, Jesus has been one of the most frequently featured characters on the screen. Which of the Messianic films do you think redeem the genre? Send your favorites to petervkeough@gmail.com or include them in the comments. Deadline is Monday, Feb. 24. We’ll be presenting the best Sunday, Mar. 2. [shown is a segment from “Son of God.”]
