A 3-DVD series entitled “The Story of Jesus” was newly released for mass distribution in America by Excel Entertainment (LDSFILMS). This major production is not a Mormon film, but was co-produced by Jimmy Osmond, a famous american singer/businessman, and Mormon. It premiered on the BBC in spring 2011, and was featured most recently on QVC in October 2011.
The film combines HD quality dramatic footage depicting the life of Jesus, interviews with some of the world’s top religious experts, and documentary footage of the latest archaeological finds in Israel and Palestine–including aerial photography of the major sites.
According to LDSFILMS, “this History Channel-like documentary now includes bonus footage of an interview with BYU professor Dr. Andrew Skinner“, as well as many other leading international religious scholars. It is available for purchase at: Deseret Book online, Amazon, and several Christian-based websites.
“We are literally seeing people from all different faiths come together and celebrate the life of Christ.” – Joel Osteen
