This is a wonderful family-friendly film, perfect for all to enjoy as we celebrate the true meaning of Easter – redemption through Christ and Christ alone.- Dove.Org

 FORTY-SEVEN DAYS WITH JESUS is good family viewing, presents a general historical overview of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and nicely builds into a moving, inspiring ending that promotes repentance, forgiveness and living out one’s Christian faith.- Movieguide

“The new faith based film “47 Days With Jesus,” is a dynamic and quirky take on this, juxtaposing the story of a modern day family with a musical retelling of the Easter story. And the result is an eclectic, art house story that tells the last 47 days of Jesus’ time on earth, carrying the musicality of Bible based theatre classics and a heart akin to The Chosen.”- JesusWired.com

Forty-Seven Days with Jesus tells the heartwarming Easter tale centered on the Burdon family, led by Joseph (Yoshi Barrigas) and Juliana (Catherine Lidstone). When the Burdons attend a reunion at Poppa and Nonna’s ranch, they realize just how disconnected their family has become. Facing marital hiccups, teenaged angst and Poppa’s health hurdles, the adults decide to share Poppa’s enchanting ‘Forty-Seven Days’ story with the kids, transporting us back in time to see the miracles of Jesus’ final 47 days on Earth. When an unexpected business opportunity places Joseph at a crossroads, his commitment to his family is tested. Can the Burdons pull together in the face of uncertainty? With Poppa’s tale as their guide, they embark on a journey towards unity and rediscover the true essence of walking in faith. 

Featuring an unforgettable original soundtrack, Forty-Seven Days with Jesus contains a powerful portrayal of Jesus’ life that reminds us all of The Gospel’s enduring impact.
