Jesus Film Project recently released a new translation of the “JESUS” film. But it’s not a spoken translation. It’s in Persian Sign Language!

Persian, also known as Farsi, is the nation of Iran’s official language. And there are over 400,000 Deaf in Iran. The “JESUS” film has been available in Farsi for a while. But now, Iranian Deaf communities also have access to the movie and its powerful representation of the Gospel!

Brian* with Jesus Film Project says, “They were hoping to actually have it premiered last year at [a] conference, but COVID canceled it. But it is now officially completed!”
