Also, in honor of its 35th anniversary, the re-titled "The JESUS Film" is scheduled for select theatrical showings beginning in March, according to project promoters.
The high-definition film will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital format in retail and online stores nationwide April 1 through the partnership of Cinedigm and Mission Home Video.
"When the original JESUS film was released 35 years ago, it was ahead of its time," said Dr. Erick Schenkel, executive director of The JESUS Film Project®, a ministry of Cru.
