The Jesus Film Project

Are you looking for a way to share Jesus with your friends and family?  There are many ways to share your faith with them.  But one way is to give them the Jesus Film.  I have done this by sending my friends a link to the film online, where there is a full length, two-hour version offered in more than 1,120 languages.

It has been such a blessing for us to have this internet tool available, because we are foreign missionaries, and this gives us a way to give the gospel to people we love and care about, so that they can view it in the privacy of their own homes in their own language. 

We usually just send them the link, so they can watch it online, but you can also purchase the video or DVD.  Then you can either invite people to come and view it, or you can give it as a gift to someone.

This short, two-minute video will show you what the Jesus Film is, in case you have never heard of it.

There is an adult version, and a children's version, and the banners below will take you to them when you click on them.  Our children enjoy both, and we have watched the film more than once before.   We hope you will, too.

The Lord has used this project in a powerful way.  There have been over 6 billion recorded viewings of the film, and over 200 million recorded decisions for Christ connected with it. It's also a great way to help reach restricted areas with the gospel, such as the Mideast.

In many of these places, misguided people worship one of the millions of gods of Hinduism, who cannot see or hear or save them. Others are into the New Age occult, trying to visualize peace, joy, or success, which they will never find outside of Jesus Christ. Others follow Muhammad or Buddha, whose bones are still in his grave. But if you go to Jesus' tomb, you will not find his bones, because they are not there!  He has risen from the dead and is alive forever! "Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." (Heb 7:25)

The apostle Paul said, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek." (Rom 1:16).  I personally am not ashamed of the gospel either.  This is the only message that has the power to save a person from perishing for eternity.  There is no other name but Jesus given among men, by which we must be saved.

I hope you are not afraid to lovingly share Jesus with others. Be bold, and take advantage of this powerful tool available to us online from the Jesus Film Project!  We have been given the awesome privilege of proclaiming the good news to all nations, and together we can complete the mission.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
