You and I- the light of the world
Based on John 8.12: I am the light of the world, and Matthew 5.14: You are the light of the world
When Jesus came to the world in person, he lived being the light in words and deeds; or, rather, in deeds and words. And then, he calls us to be the light of the world. No, actually he states that his followers are the light of the world. “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”, he said.
Therefore, starting this Christmas season (2019), and continuing towards Easter 2020, Arab Vision will produce short video clips (around one to one-and-a-half minute each) featuring principles and deeds of Jesus, reminding us what it entails to be the light of the world.
The clips will most concretely present ideas of how Christians practice ‘being the light of the world’, while following Jesus’ example; here are a few:
Goals of the Project
We aim to challenge Christians in the Arab World to represent Jesus as the Light of the world, by spreading His light through practical witness. As we know, through social media, and through satellite broadcasting, we reach many interested Arabs who don’t know Jesus as their Lord (yet), our goal is to show how He is the Light of the world, and to invite people to ask questions, start a conversation, to get to know Jesus Christ better.
The format of the clips will be a mix of drama pieces from the Jesus film, and newly produced drama, presenting concretely what it means to “ being the light of the world”.
Costs of this production are approximately US$ 20,000. Some funds have been promised already; we still need about US$ 13,000
