The True Story of Easter
A masterpiece that was created by the Cannes Film Festival award-winning producer John Heyman and a team of specialists. Researched for five years and filmed in over 200 locations in the Holy Lands, this film soars you into an experience you will never forget!
It has been translated into more than 1,700 languages and dialects. It is the most realistic film ever made about Jesus. Line for line from Luke’s Gospel, Jesus was filmed on location in Israel with painstaking attention to biblical and historical accuracy. Share this important evangelism and discipleship tool with others. An excellent title for every Christian’s home video collection. Also, a fantastic Christmas or Easter gift to anyone who already owns, but may not regularly read, a Bible! (Live action)
Since its release, The JESUS Film has been viewed by over 4 billion people in more than 236 countries. For the most part, the distribution of The JESUS Film has been outside of normal commercial venues. Yet, working through a global network of ministries, it has become the most widely distributed film in the world.
Josh McDowell tells how his daughter came to receive Christ after seeing the JESUS film. As Josh tells it—“When it came to the suggested prayer at the end, my young daughter said, Daddy, can I pray to receive Christ? I about let out a shout!”
