With the history of the film The last temptation of Christ in the world and especially in South Africa in mind, the question arises whether only films about Jesus which portray the Gospels literally should be made. A further question, however, is whether it is possible to portray the Gospels literally. This article points out the problems related to these questions and answers both questions in the negative. While there certainly are films which portray the Gospels more literally than others, even these are not exactly 'true to Scripture' in view of the specific problems regarding the Gospels and the canon.
