AWAKENING is an eye-opening documentary about the Jews in New York City who are passionate about Jesus like never before. It is the beginning of the prophecy of the 144,000 mentioned in the Book of Revelations in the New Testament of the Bible. I am sure this documentary will inspire Jews, Christians, and other people from around the world, with the movement possibly spreading to other major cities with both Jews and Gentiles present. It is about bringing the gospel to the hearts of the people who matter to God most – the Jews as God’s chosen people, as well as to the rest of the world – the Gentiles.
Carefully touching the challenges of evangelism in a cosmopolitan city like New York, the documentary reveals how Jews can be fulfilling the Great Commission in their own bold manner, sometimes in ways not seen in other Christian evangelism efforts. It is a testimony of the love of Christ being poured upon the streets by the children of God who are not ashamed of their identity, their culture, their roots, their race and their Savior. This film certainly answers what it means to be His salt and light in the world, and is a great example to many Christians to follow. The methods should not different; for we are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of salvation for those who believe (Romans 1:16).
