I love this concept.
Taking parables told by Jesus and re-telling them as modern day stories with the art of filmmaking.
That’s exactly what the American Bible Society is aiming to do with this film project that tells the story of The Prodigal Son:
From the Parables website:
“The parables of Jesus don’t demand; they inspire. They inspire his listeners and readers toward the greatest heights of human potential: generosity, patience, love, forgiveness, wisdom, eternal hope and so much more. We’d like to bring these parables to life through the powerful medium of film. We’re recasting Jesus’ stories for the world we live in using some of today’s best filmmakers and on-screen talent. And we need your help to get started!”
That’s right! They need your help!
There are a number of ways you can help:
- Watch the trailer–you can check this one off if you just watched it earlier in the post!
- Share this post with your friends!
- Pledge to the Parables Film Series Kickstarter campaign!
Since “The Return” is the first film in a ten part series, all pledges exceeding the $200,000 goal will be applied towards future Parable productions.
I’m excited to see this project reach its goal–are you?
