Oooh yes pfr, I've enjoyed loads of 'bibilical' films over the years, some of which my school took us to see ('Song of Bernadette', 'The Ten Commandments') I liked 'The Passion Of The Christ', 'Ben Hur' (where Jesus apparently heals the mother and daughter of leprosy) 'The Last Temptation Of Christ' etc.

I was also chosen to take part in countless Nativity plays and biblical depictions in my infant/junior school days, and produced many similar performances when teaching.

To folk of my age I suppose it was all a part of our culture, whether one was a fervent believer or not.

It's interesting to me to see how little today's youngsters know about Christianity. Many of them don't know the Lord's Prayer, and I bet hardly any could tell one the names of anybody whatsoever in the Bible!
I don't necessarily think this is a bad thing. I don't like fundamentalism in any form or in any religion. Tolerance and acceptance of all creeds and none are far better codes for living in my humble opinion.
