The film has been seen in every country of the world and translated into hundreds of languages since its initial release in 1979. Our goal is to reach every nation, tribe, people and tongue, helping them see and hear the story of Jesus in a language they can understand. So whether a person speaks Swahili, French, or a language whose name is extremely difficult for most to pronounce, he or she will encounter the life and message of Jesus in a language "of the heart."
Many mission experts have acclaimed the "JESUS" film as one of the greatest evangelistic success stories of all time. The ultimate success of this project won't be measured by how many people have already seen it, but by how many will follow Him after seeing this film.
Through use by The JESUS Film Project, and more than 1,500 Christian agencies, this powerful film has had more than 5 billion viewings worldwide since 1979. On top of that, the great majority of those heard the story of Jesus in a language they easily understand.
As a result, more than 197 million people have indicated decisions to accept Christ as their personal Savior and Lord.
Damaged Film Strip Miraculously Restored
A group of "JESUS" film volunteers trekked to a remote village outside of Madagascar, Africa. They carried film equipment and a generator on their backs, as they struggled down the steep, mountainous terrain.
When they arrived in the secluded village, they found the perfect spot to show the "JESUS" film. While some of the group set up the film equipment, others walked from hut to hut, inviting people to the film showing that night. That evening, a large crowd gathered to watch the movie. Just as the group was starting the show, the projector quit working.
The crowd was getting anxious, so some of the group performed a skit to entertain the audience, while the rest of them worked on the film projector.
The group was able to repair the projector quickly. However, five minutes into the show the projector caught on fire. After the group extinguished the fire, they checked the film strip and realized the fire had burnt a hole right through it. They told the audience they would postpone the screening until the next night.
The next morning, the group got together and prayed that they would be able to repair the film strip. Then several members of the group examined the film strip carefully to find the hole for repair-but no one could find it. The film was restored. God had worked a miracle!
The next evening the group showed the "JESUS" film, and several villagers trusted Christ at the close of the film.
