Jesus Would Have Wanted to See Les Miserables.

If you’re not the church going kind of person, or if you were but left because Christians are fake and self-absorbed, or if your main exposure to Christianity has been TV evangelists or the Tea party, you ought to see this movie.

Les Mis will help you see what the Bible means, and what the church at its best has meant, by “good news.”

Sacrifice of self for the salvation of others.

Les Mis is a story of those who, through personal torment and pain, die (literally and figuratively) to save others.

...the very last line all three sing summarizes the entire story: ”And remember the truth that once was spoken: ‘To love another person is to see the face of God.’” You see the face of God in all three, though in different ways.

Jesus was the personification of self-sacrifice. In The Urantia Book, his teachings are as relevant today as they were 2000 years ago:

180:1.3 “When I invite you to love one another, even as I have loved you, I hold up before you the supreme measure of true affection, for greater love can no man have than this: that he will lay down his life for his friends. And you are my friends; you will continue to be my friends if you are but willing to do what I have taught you. You have called me Master, but I do not call you servants. If you will only love one another as I am loving you, you shall be my friends, and I will ever speak to you of that which the Father reveals to me.

(143:1.7) "Today, the unbelievers may taunt you with preaching a gospel of nonresistance and with living lives of nonviolence, but you are the first volunteers of a long line of sincere believers in the gospel of this kingdom who will astonish all mankind by their heroic devotion to these teachings. No armies of the world have ever displayed more courage and bravery than will be portrayed by you and your loyal successors who shall go forth to all the world proclaiming the good news—the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of men.
