"40 Nights" is the first of the QUEST TRILOGY - films sharing alike themes of sacrifice and faith. These films focus on less known events from the biblical age. The first film examines the pre-ministry life of Jesus (DJ Perry) starting with his baptism with John the Baptist (Terry Jernigan). From there Jesus embarks on his self- exploration journey into the wilderness for 40 nights. He is tempted by the Devil thrice in various forms. Audiences will be treated to a stronger portrayal of Jesus that peeks at his childhood and family upbringing. The result is a Jesus that invokes empathy and sheds light on the true magnitude of his sacrifice for mankind. Written by CDI

There are at least 6 or 7 sermons I could write off of this movie alone. First, the cinematography was beautiful. Wow. The actor who portrays the devil, made me mad and that could only mean he performed this role very well. The portrayal of Jesus Christ is effortlessly genuine and comforting to both watch and hear. The lamb was adorable. So representative of how we stray away so easily. It's something how most want to only portray the crucifixion, when very little emphasis is put on all the moments before. I plan to watch this again. But, after just one time watching it my spirit is left in gratitude and awe of my Lord and Saviors sacrifice on my behalf. It's a showing of how capable our spirit really is over our flesh, if we are willing. This film is anointed from start to finish. That means it's favored to win souls. I thought the portrayal of decreasing in strength, an actors ability to play hunger and the extreme effects there off was quite accurate. The way the enemy comes at us in our weaknesses in times of weaknesses. For example, the scene involving the lust and the woman who wasn't a woman at first. Clever. The different voices were chilling and scary and just what I would've imagined. Wow. I can't say enough good things. I ask that you please continue to write and produce stories rarely touched, out of the bible. Since, you do them so well. I plan to order to add to my collection! Good work.
