1945 - Gabrielle


This is the kind of film that sounds like such a cliche for awards fodder, and maybe that's true to some degree, but that doesn't outweigh the fact that it's so goddamn good.  It centres around the uncomfortable topic of the sexuality of handicapped people - it's about so much more, of course, but that's the hot button controversial issue and it's such an interesting conversation to have.  Having done some significant work a long time ago with handicapped people it's something that I absolutely thought about and am glad to see a film tackling it.  Using an actor who has a disability as the lead character was an inspired choice, and she's magic on screen.  This is a beautifully told story that doesn't lead you in any one direction or condemn you for your opinions.  It's our entry this year in Canada for best foreign Oscar, and I'm damn proud of that.

IS JESUS GOD?
Jesus not only is the Son of God, He is God.

1 Peter 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ:(NKJV)

The apostle Peter understood that Jesus was in fact God.

John 20:27-29.....28 And Thomas answered and said to Him , "My Lord and my God"....(NKJV)

Thomas calls Jesus his God.

Romans 9:5 of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God, Amen. (NKJV)

Christ is God.

Hebrews 1:1-8......But to the Son He says: "Your throne O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom.(NKJV)

God the Father refers to Jesus as God.

Titus 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.(NKJV)

Jesus is not only the Savior, but God as well.

John 1:1-17 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God , and the Word was God.....(NKJV)

Jesus was the Word and He was with God the Father in the beginning. All things were created through Jesus Christ. Jesus is God, however He is not God the Father.

John 17:5 "And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the the world was.(NKJV)

Genesis 1:1,26 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image...(NKJV)

Jesus is God, the creator of all things. [Who is Us? God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit all took part in creation.]

Colossians 1:12-18.....16 For by Him all things were created...17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.....(NKJV)

Jesus is God, the creator of all things.

The Jewish leaders understood that Jesus was claiming to be God in the flesh.

John 10:31-38.....33 The Jews answered Him, saying, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God."....... (NKJV)

John 10:33.....a mere man, claim to be God.(NIV)

John 10:33 ....You claim to be God, although you're only a man." (God's Word Translation)

Yes, Jesus claimed to be God.

JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD. JESUS IS GOD.
