While I was born in the 70’s, I have to admit that I had never seen The Jesus Film. Considering that this film is celebrating its 35th birthday this year and has been viewed by billions of people around the globe, I’m surprised that I’ve never seen it.

About The Jesus Film
The JESUS Film is a faithful depiction of Christ’s birth, ministry, death, and resurrection as told in the biblical account from the Gospel of Luke. Virtually every word Jesus speaks in The JESUS Film is quoted from Scripture, with 450 leaders and scholars having reviewed the script for biblical accuracy. Further historical accuracy was ensured using clothing, pottery, and other props made with first-century methods to portray a 2,000-year-old Palestinian culture.
The JESUS Film has been officially recognized by The Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Translated Film in history and is now is available in 1,197 languages. In addition, more than 200 million individuals worldwide have indicated a decision to follow Jesus after viewing The JESUS Film. This story of the film’s impact over the past 35 years will be shown through an exclusive new short feature narrated by actor Ernie Hudson and available on the remastered widescreen DVD.

Thanks to the new streaming availability, I was recently able to view The Jesus Film for the first time. I was impressed by it and by all the Scripture quoted by Jesus throughout the film. Considering that the film was made in the late 70’s when special effects left a lot to be desired, I think the film is very well made. Of course, there isn’t need for many special effects, but the film is basic and straightforward while having great color and sound.
I watched the film by myself, but plan to view it with my family in the near future. I think this film would be a great family tradition to view around Christmas and Easter time each year, as a reminder of what Jesus has done for us, in coming to earth as a human baby, suffering life as a human, and eventually giving up his own life for our salvation.
I have two free streaming codes to give away. If you’d like to win one, please go over to my Facebook page and leave me a comment.
