I have no idea what this JESUS Film is: Part One

06 Apr

A JESUS Film showing in Kenya

You are not alone! Isaac and I were in this same boat until about three weeks ago.
So, The JESUS Film is…

a movie that Campus Crusade released in 1979. I know that sounds old, but this powerful film has been responsible for more than 200 MILLION decisions for Christ. 200 MILLION. Let that sink in.

Okay. The film itself is one of the most accurate depictions of Christ’s life, and it is based entirely on the book of Luke. Every word Christ speaks in the JESUS Film,  Christ spoke in the book of Luke.

The film’s impact was immediately felt, and Campus Crusade began to search about for partners to help spread this video of hope. Cue the Church of the Nazarene. The Nazarene church decided to partner with Campus Crusade by taking the JESUS Film to new places and into new languages. JESUS Film Harvest Partners (JFHP) was born. This is important: the Church of the Nazarene does not have a monopoly on the JESUS Film. We are partners.

Additionally, and this is my favorite part, JFHP not only brings Christ to new languages, cities, and nations — we also follow up with discipleship, pastoral care, even church planting. We take the film to a whole new level: a level of care for the newly saved.

Okay, that was LONG. So that is where I will leave you. As always, you can learn more here.

All my love, Sarah
