A truly brilliant film as well as a great witnessing tool!
8 January 2000 | by (Topeka, KS) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt the best film around about Jesus. It is truly wonderful in its portrayal according to the Gospel of Luke. It is one of the truest accounts about Jesus both biblically and historically. As of 1999 over 2.9 billion people have witnessed this film around the globe. It has been translated into over 540 languages. If you have not seen this film then I encourage you to find someone who owns it or go to the official website and find out how you can get a copy. Watch this film today!
