You may remember last March, Joel Rosenberg's report of the opening of the Damascus movie. Rosenberg wrote" Damascus is "a major motion picture about the life of the Apostle Paul and how he came to faith in Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus was going to premiere in the Syrian capital. I also asked you to pray that God would bless the showing of the film entitled, Damascus. Let me report that your prayers have been answered. More than 1,000 Syrian political, business, and religious leaders — along with journalists — attended and there is a lot of buzz in the region about the film." Here is another report, more lengthy, also by Rosenberg.
The movie's actors are Syrians from a Muslim background. The film is spoken in Arabic, with English subtitles. The use of this Middle Eastern language, speaking the actual words recorded in the Bible, is an unusual perspective and gives a tremendous authenticity. Also authentic are the locations: they are all where Paul traveled and many of the spots are now marked or noted.
I recommend the movie, I was completely inspired. It is 9 parts on Youtube. Here is part one.
