RYAN WAGNER: “As of now, the ‘Jesus Film’ is available to everyone in 1,815 languages!” –
We now have this wonderful instrument: Parts of the bible books of Luke, John & Acts are available in short film “clips” for anytime viewing.
In one’s teaching and preaching from bible stories in the bible book of Luke, many options are now available to add to communicating the message of so many stories found there.
For instance, Ryan of the Jesus Film Project tells me that there now 61 film “clips” (2-4 minutes in length) available from the book of Luke as individual units and stories. In other words, a pastor and bible teacher can focus on a story in the book of Luke, tell that story, make biblical points about it, and – in the process – show those present that story from the Jesus Film!
The learners will never forget it!
Since God created the universe, since the days of Adam and Eve – on through prehistoric times and the Old Testament era, the new Testament years, and into the last 2,000 years, only in very recent times have these kinds of tools been available for advancing the Good News of Jesus!
We can be good stewards for the opportunity.
More Info …
Ryan and Jamie Wagner have given their lives to powerfully communicating the Good News of Jesus! After having given several years in ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ (now “CRU”) in the University of Missouri at Columbia and the University of Colorado in Boulder, they now are in Orlando, Florida, serving in CRU’s World Headquarters. Their complete focus is on advancing the “Jesus Film” (and similar ministry films with impact), to a great extent on getting them on cell phones worldwide.
Both are on the Jesus Film Ministry team. Ryan background is out of First Baptist Church of “famous Ferguson” in Missouri. His wife JAMIE WAGNER – Director of the Jesus Film’s Global Mobilization – is from the First Christian Church of Harvester, both churches in the St. Louis area.
In addition to the many film clips from the book of Luke, the same is true from “The Life of Christ” in the book of John, nearly 50 clips and from the bible book of Acts, 71 more!
Take your pick … and teach and preach away on your selection!
Recently our son DAVID HENDRCK announced to his house church about an upcoming bible study from the book of Luke. I immediately made sure that David was aware of this option. So many of the stories in the bible study has a “Jesus Film” clip that can be shown with that session’s focus.
Think of it: once again, in the history of all mankind … since ADAM and EVE … this kind of use of technology in teaching the world was not possibility and has not been available to past generations.
But it is to us … more opportunities to present a clear gospel message.
As of this writing in 2020, the Jesus Film is now in 1,815 languages … and counting!
