‘Jesus’ film claims countless victories worldwidecomment (0)

August 14, 2003


SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. — The distributors of the “Jesus” film report that as of July 1 nearly 5,600,000,000 people have viewed the video depiction of the life of Christ since its first release in 1979. The film is now available in more than 800 languages and another 269 are in the process of translation.

Workers for the “Jesus” Film Project have shown the film in almost 240 countries in the world and report stories of persecution and triumphs at screening sites.

According to the project’s Web site, www.jesusfilm.org, “Jesus” film presenters in India were threatened by six men who ordered them to stop the showing of the film. To the team’s surprise, a group of 15 Muslim men stood up and told them they would protect them during the rest of the show. The other men left in the face of the new opposition and the showing of the film continued.

Other staff members in Indonesia reported Muslims eagerly accepting copies of the video.
