There is something incredibly moving about the depiction of the Bible brought into life through film. That said, I’m gleeful to be sharing about a film that dives into the events and happenings surrounding the last supper.
Eating with the Enemy is narrated by Kevin Sorbo and features several actors from The Chosen. Having recently seen much of Chosen last year, my family is excited to see these actors and actresses again who have depicted their characters exceptionally well. I’m also a fan of Kevin Sorbo and enjoyed much of his work and admire his stand in proclaiming his love for God.
The film Eating with the Enemy comes after Before the Wrath (one of the top-selling Christian films of 2020) left off. If you haven’t seen Before the Wrath, I will be giving one of my US winners a chance to win it and another film by Ingenuity Films.
I encourage you to check out the trailer below and share it with others. I am eager to anticipate seeing the film after viewing the trailer and learning what the focus is on. Note the film is set to release in Winter 2022 so I’d make sure to free up time to see it if possible.
-From the Director and Writer, Brent Miller Jr.–
Eating with the Enemy is a reference to Judas Iscariot who ate with Jesus at the Last Supper only to betray Him that very night and picks up where Before the Wrath (one of the top selling Christian films of 2020) left off! I would say that if “Wrath” revealed eye-opening evidence regarding why Jesus will return at the end of days, then “Enemy” implores you and your loved ones to be prepared for when He does!
Eating with the Enemy will not only rekindle your hope and love for Jesus Christ, but is a film intended to reach the hearts of the lost like no other before it.
At the center of the events presented in Eating with the Enemy, we find Judas Iscariot; a character that played a pivotal role in the crucifixion of Jesus, and yet, is somehow adamantly marginalized by nearly every pastor and theological institute. The tragic life and death of Judas as a living parable, however, reveals a lost warning to the Last Days church regarding those that claim to believe in Jesus, but never receive salvation. Jesus warned His disciples of this when He said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven…” (Matthew 7, 21), although they proclaim Christ and do works in His name.
Is it possible to know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, yet never be brought to saving faith? Is a ‘desire’ to follow God the same as doing so? Does proclaiming that you believe in Jesus make it true? These critical questions are answered by new and profound anthropological discoveries from the night of The Last Supper regarding the intentions and life of the film’s antagonist in contrast to other disciples and followers including Peter and Mary Magdalene.
Remember, Judas followed Jesus, witnessed miracles, partook in the breaking of bread, and based on new cultural discoveries, even BELIEVED that Jesus was the prophesied messiah; just not the Messiah he wanted. Judas followed Jesus for worldly comforts, not to receive eternal life. When considering that less than 9% of Christians in the US agree with and adhere to a biblical worldview, how much of the church today has become the “Church of Judas”?
But all of this is still a foundation for the most profound discovery of all; revealing why it was so critical for Jesus to leave His disciples with one final commandment mere hours before His crucifixion.
The audience’s call to action for Eating with the Enemy is Psalm 139:23-24; “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me And lead me in the way everlasting.”
