JESUS Remastered for 35th Anniversary

On the heels of the theater debut of Son of God, JESUS – the most watched film in history, with billions of views – has now been re-mastered in high-definition with a new musical score in Dolby 5.1 surround sound in honor of its 35th anniversary.

The classic, re-titled The JESUS Film, will show in a handful of theaters starting March 24. For those in areas outside of the theater releases, a partnership with Cinedigm and Mission Home Video will make the high-definition video available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital format. The videos will hit retail and online stores nationwide on April 1, 2014.

The JESUS Film is an authentic portrayal of Christ’s birth, ministry, death and resurrection as told in the biblical account from the Gospel of Luke. Nearly every word that Jesus speaks in the film is quoted directly from Scripture. To make sure His words were accurate, 450 leaders and scholars reviewed the script. Historical accuracy was ensured using clothing, pottery and other props made with first-century methods to portray a 2,000-year-old Palestinian culture.

Dr. Erick Schenkel, Executive Director of The JESUS Film Project®, a ministry of Cru, talked about the project in a press release, saying, "When the original JESUS film was released 35 years ago, it was ahead of its time. Yet, while the film has introduced billions of individuals around the world to the person of Jesus, few in the U.S. have ever seen it. We believe this new re-mastered version will give audiences an accurate picture of who Jesus is and why individuals around the world have chosen to follow Him, shown with production values they have come to expect."

Again, we have the opportunity to see a film about the life of Jesus.  We think it is remarkable how many books, articles and movies about Jesus are flooding the stream of consciousness these days through various media.

Here at we look on all of this with great interest, and not a little wistfulness as well. Knowing what we know - having at our fingertips the accurant restatement of the Master's life and teachings as revealed in The Urantia Book - it is difficult to keep seeing all of these noble attempts to portray Jesus for the masses, while the "rest of the story" is yet to be known by most of the world.

How do we get this story out to those who are looking for Jesus? This is our mission here at TruthBook, and we are doing our best to find those seekers after the truth, but it is slow going.

In the end, it is our opinion that any publicity for Jesus is good publicity...that all attempts to lift Jesus up should be applauded and encouraged. And so, we highly recommend this movie to our visitors.

But of course, we always have to add that for the most complete biography ever written about Jesus life and teachings, Part IV of The Urantia Book is the richest source on the planet today. Read it and share it!!!!
