Jesus: A Deaf Missions Film {Review & Giveaway}

JESUS: a Deaf Missions film

Finally, a Jesus film made by the Deaf for the Deaf! Be among the first to experience this groundbreaking new feature film about Jesus!



God’s story is unstoppable when it is in the heart language of a people group. JESUS: a Deaf Missions film, uses Deaf actors to bring the story of Jesus to life from a Deaf perspective for a Deaf audience. For the first time in history, they will have the unique opportunity to experience the story of Jesus presented as a feature-length film entirely in American Sign Language.


I am so excited! The long-awaited full-length feature film telling the story of Jesus in American Sign Language is finally here! It’s entirely made by a Deaf-led production, featuring a cast and crew fluent in ASL! Don’t worry, it has subtitles for the rest of us.

Premiering in theaters on June 20th, this historic all-sign-language movie aims to break down communication barriers and share the Gospel message with a new audience, with English subtitles for wider accessibility.

I can’t say enough good things about this movie, and I’m not even deaf or hard-of-hearing. JESUS: a Deaf Missions film is so well-done, you have to see it to believe it!

Imagine a film with no spoken words that’s so compelling to watch, you will be on the edge of your seat the whole time! After a while I didn’t even notice no one was talking.

The way they filmed this movie is very visually appealing, with creative cinematography highlighting the beautiful scenery and the characters’ interesting mannerisms, while showcasing realistic sets and costumes. The music score is beautiful to listen to, and the background sounds seem more pronounced since there isn’t any dialogue.

Best of all, the movie is true to the Gospel. JESUS: a Deaf Missions film will take you on an immersive journey with Jesus and his disciples. The actors all do a great job, but my favorite is the Samaritan woman at the well, with her animated facial expressions and lively body language.

Caution: There are several violent and bloody scenes, specifically the crucifixion, which shows Jesus being whipped and beaten before being nailed to a cross. A soldier’s ear is cut off and falls on the ground. One character is demon possessed. It graphically shows a woman suffering from a bleeding disorder. This film is unrated, but I’d say it’s equivalent to PG-13.

The movie was filmed in gorgeous Yuba State Park, Utah.

Everyone needs to see this film. Spread the word, this needs to be shared around the world!
