This is the account of a woman named Ruth, who suffers the tragic loss of her husband but who shows great love to her mother-in-law. Even though she leaves the land of her birth, in the process she discovers the one true God, finds a new husband along with peace and joy, and becomes the great-grandmother of the prophet David and an ancestor of the Messiah.
This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ told to us by God’s messenger Matthew. In this book we see how people from the East (Arabia or Persia) bring gifts to Jesus at his birth. John the Baptist (Yahya) points people to Christ. Jesus heals the sick, casts out demons, raises the dead, gives sight to the blind, walks on water, and feeds crowds of people. He teaches and preaches and tells many parables. He warns us about hypocrisy and tells us about the judgment on the last day. And he dies on the cross and rises from the dead in order to save us from the punishment and shame of that judgment that we deserve. He then sends us into the world with his message of good news.
Magdalena, a film made especially for women, beautifully shares God’s love and the gospel, engaging women at the heart level with the potential of changing their lives for eternity.
A story of tenderness, freedom and purpose, it portrays Jesus’ compassion for women and historical accounts of His interactions with them, as seen through the eyes of Mary Magdalene.
Added to digitally enhanced footage from the original 1979 “JESUS” film, “Magdalena” seamlessly weaves the true stories of four biblical women–Mary Magdalene, the Samaritan woman at the well, the woman who touched Jesus’ garment, and the woman caught in adultery–into newly filmed scenes. The film emphasizes Jesus’ compassion for women and His ability to restore their dignity and identity through a personal encounter with Him.
An eight-lesson companion Bible study, “Reflections of Hope,” and additional resources to go with the film are available at www.MagdalenaToday.com.
