He is Risen is the story of the greatest miracle of all, the resurrection of Jesus. Sorrow and despair at the Lord's crucifixion become complete joy and love as the disciples behold their resurrected Master three days later. The events of the real story of Easter teach of the atonement and resurrection, providing hope to Christians around the world. A young boy, Daniel, witnesses the death of Jesus by crucifixion on Calvary where a Roman Centurion confirms, "Truly this man was the son of God." Storms rage and an earthquake shakes the land at Jesus' death. Daniel hurries back to the Disciples, who are hiding from Roman soldiers, with the news of Jesus' death. Meanwhile, Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus prepare Jesus' body, bury it in a tomb cut into a hillside and cover the entrance with a huge stone.

One of the most beautiful animated short features you'll ever see
12 July 2014 | by jawavsSee all my reviews

I grew up with this video and I love it just as much now as I did then.

First one must realize this is based on a true story; Jesus Christ really did die for our sins and rise again to life forever more.

This was when NEST Entertainment was at their best; the animation is very well done, and a musical score is beautiful. Equally as much so is the opening song, "He Gave His Life For Me". The movie can you watch, enjoyed, and appreciated by children and adults alike. For obvious reasons, this one has a heavier tone then a lot of NEST's other videos, but there is nothing unsuitable for children. This was one of the best witnesses in my life as a child as to who Jesus Christ is. Is a great teaching material for kids and the unsaved, and it is also great encouragement for believers.

You rarely see productions of this kind of heart and that are this moving. Now more than ever when I watch this I am moved to tears and want to seek God even more.

The best thing, of course, about this film is it's accuracy to Scripture. Many lines are, in fact, straight out of Scripture, particularly when Jesus is talking.

Honestly, I don't think I can recommend "He Is Risen" enough. It follows the second half of the greatest story in history, and I highly recommend you search the internet for a copy. I believe you will be blessed, like I am blessed when I see it.
