Palm Sunday came and went recently, but as the Killing Jesus movie re-enacted it before the scene before cameras, something startling happened.
Alexis Rodney, who played Peter in the televised version of Bill O'Reilly's book, revealed in a podcast that as Christ entered into the streets and extras were shouting "Hosanna!" the Lord really showed up.
"There was a scene where Jesus was fulfilling the prophecy of Zechariah ... where he's riding the donkey colt into Jerusalem, and the people are laying the palms on the floor and there was a moment where it reached near rapture," Rodney says on The Church Boys
"The people—they were going to cut, we had finished the scene—these were people in an absolute state of rapture. They were just screaming 'Hosanna!'
"They weren't stopping. They were paid supporting actors ... and the camera operator used his good thinking and just carried on filming ... I felt like a biblical superstar. It was just absolutely amazing."
If a prophetic re-enactment can have that sort of impact on paid actors, what could this mean for the world?
Having a diverse cast allowed the producers to expand the audience to include nonbelievers, Rodney tells The Church Boys.
"It takes in a younger, perhaps more skeptical audience," Rodney says. "It will open up more to them."
And allow them to prepare the way of the risen Lord?
