Over 40,000 people have watched a stunning evangelistic video resource since its release last month. Created by Christianity Explored Ministries (CEM) the video tells the story of Jesus from the Bible in just two minutes.
Beautifully illustrated and animated by Ordinary Folk – a Vancouver-based motion design studio – the video combines creative storytelling with the clear communication of the message at the heart of the Christian faith.
A winsome voiceover from author and pastor Thabiti Anyabwile asks the question Jesus asked his followers, “Who do you say I am?” and tells the story of Jesus, from creation to new creation, centred on his death and resurrection.
The video is available to view at christianityexplored.org, which features testimonies and other resources for those exploring the Christian faith. The website was visited over 300,000 times in 2020, revealing a hunger for the hope of the gospel in the midst of the Covid pandemic.
As well as presenting the gospel story in a creative way for those who have never heard it before, the video is a resource to equip Christians for their personal evangelism. It focuses questions about the Christian faith onto the person of Jesus, opening up conversations about his identity as God, his mission as Saviour, and his call for everyone to follow him.
Rico Tice (CEM co-founder and evangelist) said:
“This is a wonderful summary of the Christian story in just over two minutes. Unique, creative, and so packed full of theology
that you can watch it again and again. It makes it clear that the most important question we can ever ask ourselves is the one Jesus put to his disciples, “Who do you say I am?” Definitely one to share with friends.”
