As a way to celebrate Good Friday, I wanted to share this anime short called “My Last Day”. According to Wikipedia, “My Last Day” is a 2011 anime short created by the JESUS Film Project. The anime was directed by Barry Cook (director of the Disney movie Mulan) and STUDIO°4C (Their works include Berserk: The Golden Age Arc, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, and The Animatrix).The film short is about the day of punishment and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The story is told through the eyes of one of the criminals as he sees Jesus suffer and die at Golgotha. This movie focuses on the suffering of Jesus and repentance for sin.
Jesus was betrayed by His disciple Judas and arrested by Roman Soldiers on Thursday night. He was placed in false trials and mocked by soldiers. On Friday, He was scourged and was sentenced for death by Crucifixion. When He died, darkness came and He gave up his spirit. We Christians remember this important Friday because today was the day that Jesus died on the cross and taking our sins. We were supposed to be die on the cross but God loved us that He gave His Son to die for us for our sins (John 3:16). It was something he had to do to save us from death. On Sunday morning, He rises from the tombs and conquered death.
Here is the link to the website if you wish to see it.
I will also leave the video from YouTube, if you wish to watch it here.
WARNING: This film contains realistic depictions of the ancient Roman form of execution called crucifixion. The intended audience is teenagers and older.
You don’t have to watch this video but I am hoping that after you read this or if you do decide to watch it, everyone will turn away from their sins and come to Christ. Jesus died for us so we can be together in Heaven. Please come to Christ.
God Bless you all!
