Christmas can be a challenging time of year for those who have experienced loss. I know some people who are dealing with the loss of a loved one right now, and they are constantly in my prayers!
Christmas is the time when we remember how Jesus came to earth: not in pomp and circumstance, nor as a military conqueror, but rather as a baby. He was fully God and fully man. To convey this truth, the book of Hebrews describes Jesus as our great high priest.
Hebrews 4:15 says “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
Because Jesus was fully man as well as fully God, He experienced many of the same difficulties that humans do. He suffered rejection by others. He endured physical pain when he was crucified. He lost a loved one. Jesus understands our struggles.
New Life is a Christian film whose goal is to encourage people to hold onto hope in the midst of grief.
The official synopsis says, “The movie tells the story of Benjamin Morton (Jonathan Patrick Moore) and Ava (Erin Bethea), who meet as children. What began as a childhood friendship grows into a meaningful relationship as the two plan out their lives together. When life takes a turn neither of them expected, their entire future is called into question, and they must decide what it really means to make the most of life.”
Erin Bethea, the producer and lead actress of the film, is best known for her previous roles in the Christian films Fireproof and Facing the Giants. New Life is a production by Argentum Entertainment, which seeks to create quality films that do not contain objectionable content.
