Cecil B. De Mille’s picture, The King of Kings, filmed during the silent movie era, was seen by countless millions of people. De Mille was once asked why he did not reproduce the movie with sound and color. He replied, “I will never be able to do it, because if I gave Jesus a southern accent, the northerners would not think of him as their Christ. If I gave him a foreign accent, the Americans and the British would not think of him as their Christ. As it is, people of all nations, from every race, creed, clan can accept him as their Christ.”
Jesus truly wants to be everyone’s Savior!
“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”—1 John 2:2.
