Witness the enduring strength of Jesus, His remarkable love,and His desire to carry out His Father's will. In 1993,Christian filmmakers set out to make a Jesus film whichwould be Word-for-Word the Gospel. What emerged was apresentation of Jesus in exultant joy (Hebrews 1:9) and deeppassion - a Man who was God on His knees in the sand,weeping over people's pain, reaching His healing hand intotheir broken lives; a Man who restrained all the power ofthe universe and allowed His blood to fall to theground...for you. Come experience Jesus as never before!Word for Word Matthew (NIV), this film which has seencountless testimonies like that above is as arresting onthis 15th anniversary of its USA release as then. Comeexperience God's Word afresh, and His promises for you anew.Come, experience Jesus! Word for word from the best sellingNIV Bible. Part I: Matthew 1:1 - 14:36 - The year is about62 A.D., and the aging apostle Matthew recalls theremarkable events he witnessed as a young man. As his storyunfolds, the centuries melt away and we are intimatelyinvolved in the life of Jesus. We share the mystery and thewonder of His birth. We witness His baptism and temptationin the wilderness. We experience the compassion and hope ofthe Sermon on the Mount.
