Unbelievable New App

I just downloaded to my iPhone the app from the Jesus Film Media (that’s what you’ll type in as you try to search for it in the iTunes or Android App Store).  It gives you access to the entire Jesus Film (read more about the film here: http://www.jesusfilm.org/ broken into clips.  Want to watch Jesus calm the sea?  It’s there.  Want to watch Him deliver the Beatitudes?  It’s there.  I believe this will be a great tool for making many of the accounts come alive again for me and a tool for sharing those accounts with others.

Yes . . . it’s also available on the Android.

When you first open the app, go to The Jesus Film and click on it.  Then browse through all the clips they have.  I give it five stars.

Did I mention that it’s FREE?
