John, The Beloved
He has followed Christ, and now he is the only surviving disciple. One by one they have been martyred until only John remains. Now, he is an old, dying man banished to the Isle of Patmos. Yet, his life lived for Christ is not yet over, and John is determined to continue to live for his Savior. When his Roman jailers begin to mock and question him about his faith, John is prepared—prepared to tell his story. Beginning with Jesus’ birth, John vividly tells the story of his Savior, recounting his life, his ministry, his love, and his death. Yet, John continues the story with Jesus’ resurrection, answering his jailer’s question, “How do you know he is the Son of God?” with a simple, yet profound statement, “Because I was there.” Based on the book of John, the movie God With Us is not only a story of John’s life, but a story of the life of Jesus, the journeys taken by Jesus and his apostles, the encounters the apostles had with Jesus’ miracles, Jesus’ astounding teaching, and his bravery. John recounts the awe and amazement with which he and the other disciples followed Jesus throughout the land of Israel, encountering his love and his power, and deciding that he was a man worth risking their lives for.
Some viewers may recognize the film God With Us. In fact, this film is an enhanced, extended version of the film Jesus: He Lived Among Us that was animated and released many years ago. Jesus’ challenge to his disciples to “share the good news with the whole of creation,” and John’s own story of continuing to spread the good news of the gospel even while he was imprisoned, first inspired Voice of the Martyrs to create the film Jesus: He Lived Among Us. The desire that individuals across the globe could see and hear the story of Jesus for the first time, especially those in the persecuted church or individuals in countries closed or hostile to the gospel, first inspired the film Jesus: He Lived Among Us. This early film was widely used by missionaries and evangelists as a tool to share the story of Jesus in an impactful vivid way with many individuals, and was soon a beloved film for many families as well. Hoping to reach even more individuals and families Voice of the Martyrs has re-animated and re-written Jesus: He Lived Among Us to create the even more impactful film God With Us. As you watch John share his true story once more in God With Us, you will be encouraged to share it once again with those who may not have heard the good news of the gospel.

Voice of the Martyrs
Voice of the Martyrs, the organization which produced the film God With Us, is a nonprofit, international mission organization that seeks to serve the global persecuted church through practical and spiritual support and assistance. Voice of the Martyrs has a powerful back story, and was begun by a persecuted Christian. Richard Wurmbrand was born in 1909 to a Jewish family in Romania, however, after his marriage to his wonderful wife Sabina in 1936 he was converted to Christianity. Hoping to reach the Jews of Romania, Richard became a Lutheran pastor just before the outbreak of WWII. During the Nazi occupation of Romania Richard and Sabina risked their lives to rescue Jewish children and reach German forces with the gospel. They were arrested and beaten several times, and once nearly lost their lives. Following the defeat of the Nazis, their lot did not improve. In 1945 Communists seized power of Romania, and Christianity was outlawed. Despite the danger, Richard continued to evangelize and distribute the Bible to his fellow countrymen and Russian troops—often disguised as Communist propaganda. In 1948 Richard was arrested and placed in solitary confinement. After eight and a half years of imprisonment a Christion doctor disguised as a Communist member discovered and released Richard. Because he continued to preach the gospel, however, Richard was re-arrested three years later in 1959, and sentenced to twenty-five years in prison—through God’s providence he only served five. After his release, a Norwegian mission payed $10,000 dollars to the Communist government to ransom the lives of Richard and his family. His fellow underground Christians encouraged him to leave and become a “voice” to the world for the persecuted church.
In the years of travel that followed their escape, the Wurmbrands spread the message of the persecution and pain that Christians faced in restricted nations. Establishing a network of offices to help the persecuted church, Voice of the Martyrs was born. Today they aid the persecuted church and believers across the world through many means—including films like God With Us.
Journey with John and discover the life of Jesus Christ through new eyes. . . they eyes of the persecuted church!
