WATCH: Mark 12:31 Comes to Life in A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD


WATCH: Mark 12:31 Comes to Life in A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

By Jessilyn Lancaster, Managing Editor

Fred Rogers took Mark 12:31, more commonly known as the “Golden rule,” to heart through his program MR. ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD.

The beloved TV star made such an impact that Tom Hanks will portray him in the new movie, A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

The trailer itself features Hanks spouting off bits of biblical wisdom, including: “I think sometimes the best thing we can do is let people know they are precious.”

Matthew Rhys [THE POST] plays a journalist hired to profile Rogers and also notices the star’s heart of kindness.

“You love broken people, like me,” Rhys’ character, Lloyd Vogel, tells Rogers.

A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD will hit theaters in October, more than a year after WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?, a documentary on the life of Rogers, premiered.

Though Rogers received some flak from evangelical Christians for not openly discussing the Gospel on his television program, Rogers had a strong faith history and testimony that he shared with broadcasters.

“At my invitation, Mr. Rogers spoke at the evangelical National Religious Broadcasters in the 1980s. Fred proclaimed his testimony about coming to faith in Jesus Christ and discussed his theory of education,” says Movieguide® founder Dr. Ted Baehr.

“He noted that he was both an educator and a Christian minister. The national PBS programmers were secular at the time, so he focused he program on educating children to manifest the fruit of the Holy Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control,” Baehr said.
