The Young Messiah
Rating & Content Info
Why is The Young Messiah rated PG-13? The Young Messiah is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for some violence and thematic elements.
Violence: Scenes throughout this movie depict physical confrontations involving swords and knives, which include bloody stabbings and slashings. One scene depicts various men being crucified (hung on crosses); a later scene shows a soldier stabbing one of these men in an effort to shorten his misery. A man accosts a woman and appears to be planning to rape her, however two other people intervene and halt the attack. When a young child bullies another child, an accident results that causes the perpetrator to fall down and die—he is later revived. Scenes of verbal altercation, threats and peril are seen, some of which will be frightening to younger children.
Sexual Content: It appears a man intends to rape a woman, but the act is interrupted. A woman in a skimpy costume dances for a king. Vague, period terminology is used to imply a woman is a prostitute. A character calls a man’s wife a “whore”. The miraculous conception of a child is spoken of in vague terms.
Language: Infrequent racial and sexual slurs are used.
Alcohol / Drug Use: A character attempts to bribe a soldier with wine. Social drinking is depicted.
