IT’S ALWAYS A GOOD TIME TO produce biblical epics for film-going audiences world-wide. The genre of religious films is among the top grossing genres of all time (horror, sci-fi then religion). I’m convinced that a film touching on Jesus Christ of Nazareth as seen through the eyes an ordinary man, is a film that would appeal to the broadest audience. We want to create an opportunity for audiences to vicariously live in the first century and meet Jesus.
We all tend to lose sight of the reality of Jesus walking amoung us as a real person. Besides the fact that He is the Son of God, He lived, breathed, got hungry, laughed, hurt, got tired and disappointed, and had to deal with people and situations just as we today.
He was a carpenter, a man who was acquainted with sweat and toil, who could relax and join the kids of the neighbourhood playing their games. However at the same time, He was a holy divine man, God incarnate. The Lamb will speak to the broad movie going audience – crossing the borders of denominations and even spiritual convictions – because it deals with real people, real tragedies and circumstances that happen to all of us. Everyone struggles with a desire to believe and the fear of being disappointed.
The audience will identify with our main character, Mattias, the father of the family, who goes through an intense and devastating crisis of faith, when his son dies. He utters the words that have echoed from the lips of Man across the centuries, ‘God, why did You do this to me?’ People, however cynical and hard-hearted, believe that there is ‘something’ out there.Something to give meaning to their lives. Our vision for The Lamb, is to show audience that ‘something’ is Jesus.
I truly believe that God inspired this film for a specific purpose in the history of the world; it will have a tremendous impact on mankind. I believe that I am acting on a call from the Lord to do this film, as promised in Hebrew 8:5, 1 Thessalonians 5:24, with a promise from God in Isaiah 25:6-8.”
