I’m excited to bring you this His Only Son movie review & giveaway!

His Only Son Movie Review & Giveaway
His Only Son recounts one of the most controversial moments in the Old Testament—when Abraham was commanded by God to sacrifice his son Isaac on the mountain of Moriah. While traveling to the place of the sacrifice, alongside Isaac and two servants, Abraham is flooded with vivid memories from the years he and Sarah spent longing for the son they were promised—the son he must now lay upon the altar.
His Only Son Movie Review
His Only Son starts out with Abraham telling Sarah that God told him to go make a sacrifice. She didn’t like the fact that he would have to travel, because travel in that time period was dangerous. But when he told her that he was taking Isaac with him. she was very, very against it. As you would imagine. So course, she tried to talk him out of going, but he insisted that God told him to go and he was going AND taking Isaac with him.
And, yes, there is danger along the way on their trip. From soldiers for the king, to a servant trying to take matters into his own hands.
His Only Son
Along the way, Abraham has flashbacks to everything that led up to this point. When God told him that He would make Abraham a great nation. All the pain that Sarah felt from not being able to have a baby. What happened when Sarah gave her maid Hagar to Abraham, and the tension that created in their relationship.
When Abraham and Isaac finally get to Moriah, Isaac asks his father where the lamb is for the sacrifice. “The Lord will provide the lamb.” Isaac had no reason to not trust or believe his father. When they get up on the mountain, and Abraham tells his precious son what God told him to do. Isaac does question why God would tell his father to do this.
Abraham was right. God did provide a lamb for the sacrifice.
The movie than fast forwards 2,000 years. Then we see 3 crosses and another “His only son”. And a Roman guard saying this man was the son of God. The movie ends with the Bible verse John 3:16 on the screen.
His Only Son is a very well done movie. The whole family can watch this movie. A couple of scenes are a little intense, so young, or sensitive, children may have a hard time with them.
Overall, though, His Only Son is a great family movie. We can see that what God promises, He will fulfill. That He is always there watching over us, protecting us, and providing for us. An awesome message for us all!
