Storyline

"40 Nights" is the first of the QUEST TRILOGY - films sharing alike themes of sacrifice and faith. These films focus on less known events from the biblical age. The first film examines the pre-ministry life of Jesus (DJ Perry) starting with his baptism with John the Baptist (Terry Jernigan). From there Jesus embarks on his self- exploration journey into the wilderness for 40 nights. He is tempted by the Devil thrice in various forms. Audiences will be treated to a stronger portrayal of Jesus that peeks at his childhood and family upbringing. The result is a Jesus that invokes empathy and sheds light on the true magnitude of his sacrifice for mankind. Written by CDI

Compelling and inspirational

Most Bible-based films fall short for Christian viewers when the story strays too far outside of Biblical parameters. Even though the 40 nights is imagined, it's still grounded in Scriputur and is quite believable, unlike the film Noah, which would have been more successful had it been faithful to the Biblical version. Give 40 Nights a try and you won't be sorry. DJ Perry brings out the human, personal side of Christ, and you won't read the Bible passage the same way after viewing this film.
