Cross - Jesus in China (DVD)
Soul For Christ Foundation
The turbulent 50-year history of Chinese Christians on Screen! It
took three years to complete the documentary film, The Cross - Jesus
in China. Using live footage and interviews, the film captures true
stories and seeks to answer the most common questions: How did the
number of Chinese Christians increase from 700,000 in 1949, to approximately
70 million today despite communist control? How does the Chinese government
deal with Chinese Christians? How did Chinese Christians develop,
survive and grow? What kind of people are they, and what kind of influence
have they had and will have on Chinese society?
The Cross - Jesus in China consists of three episodes and one short
Episode One: "The Spring of Life" recounts the real life and
the inner world of Christians from a variety of backgrounds, such
as farmers, students, officials, criminals, orphans, actors, writers,
scientists and entrepreneurs.
Episode Two: "Seeds of Blood" follows the bloody footprints
of Chinese missionaries after the Boxer Rebellion, particularly in
the past 50 years. The stories of famous ministers such as Mingdao
Wang, John Sung, Watchman Nee, Allen Yuan, Samuel Lamb, Moses Xie,
Yang Xinfei and Epaphras are included.
Episode Three: "The Bitter Cup" abounds in compelling testimonies
by missionaries after the Cultural Revolution. Their dedication, suffering,
faithfulness and gratitude have led to an unprecedented revival of
the Chinese Christian church.
Documentary Short: "The Canaan Hymns," tells the amazing story
of a farm girl named Xiao Min, a high-school dropout with no musical
training. Nevertheless, she created nearly a thousand wonderful hymns,
which have been widely spread among Chinese churches around the world.
The filmmakers and crewmembers are a group of devout Christians who
courageously and persistently went deep into China and interviewed
thousands of Christians. There were times when they were under hidden
surveillance, and other times when they were blatantly followed. On
one occasion their cameras were confiscated. However, due to their
devotion and self-denial, they were able to reach the foundation of
underground churches in China to obtain the true stories and know
the hearts and minds of Chinese Christians. The goal behind making
The CrossJesus in China is to leave history a record that provides
the truth of Christianity in China. The film also serves as an encouragement
to Chinese churches around the world and a gift to each Chinese Christian.
Moreover, it presents a new perspective for everyone who is concerned
about the future of China.
