It is our great pleasure to be the messengers of good news for the Urantia community - and for the world. We want to call your attention to a new documentary about Jesus, produced and directed by long-time devoted Urantia Book reader/student, David Kantor.
Re-Imagining Jesus is a feature length film based on the matchless story of Jesus' ministry in The Urantia Book. The film is accompanied by an original and lovely musical score composed by critically acclaimed composer and Urantia Book reader, Gary Deinstadt. And it is narrated by David Kantor, by Jennifer Siegel, and by Stephen Zendt.
David spent five years in the production of this superb film. Much of it is filmed in the very places where Jesus lived and launched his momentous preaching missions, and the footage of many of the important places in the master's ministry, such as the Jordan River and Mt Hermon, are beautiful, even today.
Archaeology plays a part in the discovery of Jesus' missions, giving the viewer a fuller understanding of life in Jesus' times.
Modern seekers of Jesus are thirsty for more of Jesus than has been available for 20 centuries. Re-Imagining Jesus is meant to engage any and all followers of the Master, and it is hoped that this new view of Jesus will open meaningful discussion among all those who seek a deeper understanding, and a closer walk, with Jesus.
Highlights of the film include:
The classic New Testament story illuminated with detail from The Urantia Book's biography of Jesus
Beautiful footage of seldom seen places associated with some of the most important events in the Master's life
Detailed maps providing important geographic orientation
Timeline of events between the baptism in the Jordan and the resurrection
A compelling story about his primary mission -- the revelation of a spiritual kingdom accessible here and now
We encourage you to set aside some time; maybe plan a family movie night, or even a neighborhood movie night, and make it an occasion to share with your family, friends, church associates or neighbors.
From The Urantia Book:
196:1.2 The time is ripe to witness the figurative resurrection of the human Jesus from his burial tomb amidst the theological traditions and the religious dogmas of nineteen centuries. Jesus of Nazareth must not be longer sacrificed to even the splendid concept of the glorified Christ. What a transcendent service if, through this revelation, the Son of Man should be recovered from the tomb of traditional theology and be presented as the living Jesus to the church that bears his name, and to all other religions!
We think you'll agree that Re-Imagining Jesus is a VERY positive step forward fulfilling this mandate.
