As Easter is approaching, it is an excellent opportunity to rediscover Easter for what it really means. We are excited to screen the Jesus Film, the best film ever produced depicting the virgin birth, life, miracles, teaching, crucifixion, death and more importantly the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The movie was produced in 1979 by the Campus Crusade for Christ. It was taken word-for-word from the Gospel of Luke according to the Today’s English Version.
According to the New York Times and the BBC, the Jesus Film is described as the most-watched motion picture of all time. According to the Jesus Film Project, a research firm estimated the known viewings of the film from 1979 to 2015 as greater than 7.3 billion. It is officially accredited by The Guinness Book of World Records as the “Most Translated Film” in history, having been translated in 1,803 languages as of April 2020, with many others in process.
So, come, invite others, and do not miss this very special event.
The film will be screened on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd April at 6:30pm across our three locations: St Andrews in Forrest, Belconnen, and Weston Creek.
There is plenty of parking available at all three venues.
This movie runs for 2 hours and 7 minutes and is rated “G” (General exhibition) There is a kids’ room at St Andrews for nursing mothers and restless children and sound is broadcast into this room so that no one will miss any part of the movie. So, sit back, relax and witness the most miraculous events in history as Jesus sets sail with fishermen, challenges the Pharisees, befriends the outcasts, and heals the hurting. The lives he touches will never be the same.
