My Review

He Knows My Name was a beautiful story about a young girl and her interactions with a man named Jesus that she came to know as the Messiah. It is set in an area where Jesus was preaching near a town where Rebekah lived with her mother and grandfather. The story takes place before, during, and after Jesus's death and resurrection, which isn't in the video, but is spoken of. Jesus met many during his ministry. The video portrays the influence and power of a few such interactions in the life of this young girl and her family.

The story made me think of those surrounding Jesus's life and what their own personal stories would be. There was a connection to Jesus's birth with Rebekah's grandfather that we find out about as the story unfolds. Through Rebekah's faith and trust Jesus ends up coming in contact with her family where he saves them all in various ways. It was sweet, heartbreaking, and inspirational to watch as each of these characters' hearts were touched and changed. He Knows My Name is definitely a film that is worth sitting down and watching with the family. It was one that I enjoyed and would recommend to those of the Christian faith.

  1. I liked The Boardwalk Antiques shop so much I bought The Fortune Cafe and read it immediately :) Novellas are so fun, especially when they are well-written like these are.

    Lexi's Pathetic Fictional Life intrigues me. Added it to my TBR.
