Finding Faith in Christ (2003)

Credit: lds.orgFor me, this is one of the few movies worthy of Easter Sunday.

 

Above is the whole 30-minute film. You can also watch it here.

This is the story of Jesus Christ, as told by “doubting” Thomas, one of His apostles. It focuses on both Christ’s ministry and Atonement.

OH, SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW: Most of the opening storm scene was shot in the wave pool at the Seven Peaks water park in Utah.

I don’t watch this film for the award-winning acting or the expensive special effects and/or Seven Peaks entrance fees — I watch it to feel the Holy Ghost testify to me of Jesus Christ.

As the Son of God, Christ had the ability to endure an inhuman amount of agony, suffering even more than man can suffer.

Because Christ now has a glorified, resurrected body, we know that to have a fullness of joy our spirits and bodies must be reunited, also. And because Christ was resurrected, all of us will be resurrected.

Truly, without Him we can do nothing.

I don’t know how Christ resurrected Himself. I don’t know how Christ’s resurrection enables the resurrection of everyone else. I don’t know how He suffered the hellish agony required for my salvation.

I do know, by the power of the Holy Ghost, that my Redeemer lives. And that knowledge is enough for now.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” –  John 3:16
