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,
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
are flooding the stream of consciousness these days through various
Here at TruthBook.com 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,
IV of The Urantia Book is the
richest source on the planet today.
