I found interesting the gathering in the beginning; it reminds me of the movies I have seen that show markets in Jesus’s time. The offering accepted made me think of the offerings that the Greeks made to their gods. I find how much most monotheistic religions intersect to be very interesting. The use of Gabriel the Angel is the first main definite intersection I see in this film.
