    My husband and I just watched this AWESOME movie on Netflix! I loved it…and it’s message…so much that I shared about it on facebook! I hope that some of my friends will watch it and pass it on. It also would be a great movie to watch together in a Youth group or Bible study group and I can’t wait to see the sequel!

    I have watched this movie over and over and over again its like I can’t get enough of it. I love the way Bruce Marchiano portrayed JESUS and used scripture throughout the entire movie. This is most definatly one of the greatest movies i’ve ever seen. Awesome job to all the actors and actresses.

    My grandson is so going to be excited to hear this! Just this evening, he asked me if Bruce Marchiano was working on any movies besides the new Jesus Movie. He loves the Matthew video and The Encounter. I told him, “No…I don’t think so.” He’ll be excited to hear this! He and I both enjoy watching those movies before he goes to bed. I’d say (not exaggerating) we’ve probably watched Matthew at least 100 times over the last year, and The Encounter at least 40 times since we found it last fall.

    I love ” The encounter”. I love God, thats probably why(lol). Does any one know if there is a soundtrack. In the first or “The Encounter” with Jaclyn Valasquez , the scene when she is picking up kayla, there is a song playing in the back ground, does anyone know the name of it it……………Its like “ill be waiting for you”…………….Its so beautiful. I was trying to get the artist name so i can find it and buy it. If anyone can help out that would be great . Thanks!

    I would contact PureFlix @ 480-991-2258 and see if they know. That would be the best way to find out for sure. We could not find anyone that was selling a soundtrack though.

    I watched this movie this morning, it was very moving to say the least. The Holy Spirits presence fell on me very hard. I have had several encounters, the part that most moved me was when the husband heard the voice of God telling him to stop to pick up the young girl, and he did not. Similiar things have happened to me and i did not obey, and i saw each and every person i had not stopped to pray for in my mind. It set my priorities straight , I was going to start focusing more on business and work. and i felt. ‘GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME THAN HE WHO IS IN THE WORLD’!!. Amazing film. I am going to give it out to friends and family let it speak for itself.

    This movie is definitely a great witnessing tool. I thank God for christian ministries that are using their talents and resources to bless those that haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior as well as the church of Christ. Great movie!

    22 September 12, 8:06pm

    Love the first encounter just watch the second 1. The violence is not needed, unhelpful, and distracts from the word. On top of all this they put a part in the movie where it has the actor that plays Jesus tell someone because his sister got saved at 14 that when she died of drug overdose of 18 she went to heaven. I am not a final judge but this teaching is unbiblical that’s like saying because I got baptized as a child I could die of alcohol poisoning Partying and go to heaven. I’m sorry that this happened because I really like the movies

  23. Donald says
    23 September 12, 10:26pm

    Wow, I was highly disappointed with the Encounter 2. The pureness, simplicity, and intricate character development of the first film are missing here. Instead we have a pseudo-Christian film that wants so badly to be a secular Hollywood action thriller instead of a movie glorifying Christ. Why do we need such senseless violence and gun play in a Christian film? A girl overdoses on heroin but she still goes to heaven because she gave her life to Christ when she was fourteen? Huh, does that make any sense?? I left the first film feeling encouraged and uplifted. After watching this movie I wanted to repent. Don’t waste your time on it.

    We just saw this film last night so we couldn’t make any comments about the drug overdosed girl going to Heaven. I wish they would have made that one more clear. Perhaps she was drugged and didn’t overdose herself, if that makes sense. If they would have made it a point to make it clear, it really would have left us without any confusion. We agree that this part should have either been left out or made clear.


  26. Sharon says

    Both The Encounter and The Encounter: Paradise Lost have their perfect place as evangelistic outreaches. Each will appeal to persons of different backgrounds and experiences, and both will appeal to someone like me, who believes God uses His infinite understanding of our human differences to prepare vehicles that will touch those whose hearts have been prepared by the Holy Spirit to be drawn to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, regardless of where they are coming from.

    I must respectfully disagree with those who feel the character of Jesus in the Paradise Lost film implied anything inappropriate when He said the law enforcement officer’s twin sister who died at 18 of a drug overdose was in Heaven because she had accepted Christ when she was 14. If you re-watch the scene and pay careful attention to the conversation, Jesus is not suggesting ‘cheap grace’, or in any way implying that some “ritual decision or act as a child” made this possible. He is stating that her conversion was REAL and not just a formality. Sometimes we forget that the Word of God says Christ died on the Cross for the Sin of the whole world…..not sins of the whole world……ORIGINAL sin, which is the sin that condemned humans to separation from our Heavenly Father, is what the perfect Lamb of God paid for on Calvary, and that is a permanent transaction when recognized, acknowledged and accepted by those who profess that Jesus Christ is indeed the Son of God, and ask Him to forgive them and save them.

    Jesus also died for the sins that are of breaking God’s laws, and we are wise to keep short accounts with Him, for we all sin every day that we live (for none was ever perfect but Jesus Himself), and we lose the joy of fellowship with our Heavenly Father when we do not keep a repentant heart before Him. Still, such sin is not a sin unto loss of Salvation if the Bible is to be believed. Therefore, if this young woman truly believed that Jesus is the Christ, and had truly and properly trusted him as Saviour, even though she fell into addiction and sin it does not necessarily follow suit that she recanted her belief and denied her trust in Him. That being the case, God’s Word would support the position of the Jesus character in the film that she possessed eternal life. Her soul was saved, even though we have no way of knowing how her failures might deeply affect her rewards.

    Why do we so easily forget that the gift of God is “ETERNAL life”? There is nothing eternal that can become temporary. If it could, it would mean it was never eternal to begin with! Look up the definitions of the word eternal, think and pray about it, and see what you conclude. When the Word tells us that we can KNOW that we have eternal life, it means it 🙂

    Peace and joy, beyond explanation, to you all >

    Sorry this movie is VERY seeker sensitive and waters down the gospel. Not to mention it will prob make some false converts if they only accept Jesus for the reward of seeing family in heaven (like the one man was persuaded to do). The scene with the cops overdosed sister maybe not be clear but I dont think it wrong to question the validity of a conversion when you turn from it to drugs. Not saying its impossible to be saved then to some how get into drugs, but the way you get into would make it very clear if you had a true conversion or not (just taking up drugs as opposed to maybe having to be on them from a surgery or something then becoming addicted) Philipians 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” I don’t think someone allowing themselves to get into a situation of an overdose, allowed Christ to began any work in them. I could be wrong but thats my take on it.

  28. 06 February 13, 1:02am

    Well, I must say I enjoyed the first film and I thought I was going to enjoy the second.. but when you get to the last 15 minutes, there is some VERY BAD doctrine that is NOT Biblical…
    “JESUS” said that the Twin Sister is in Heaven because she accepted him as a Child…. But yet, she was a HEROIN addict and OVERDOSED at the age of 18. I am sorry folks but that is not Biblical.
    I would personally like to know whether David A.R. White believe this way and if so why. I had been a HUGE FAN of several of his movies (and enjoyed “Run On” even…except for the one gentleman using the SLANG for ‘pee’ twice which was awful) but unless I find out his personal view on this, I don’t know as I (or my church) should really be watching these films. I don’t want my congregation to be misled by bad doctrine.

    06 February 13, 7:14am

    Hi Pastor Jacob, there are a few comments about this same fact. The idea for Christian films is NOT for doctrine. These films can bring someone to Jesus or strengthen someone’s faith but shouldn’t be used for any type of Doctrine. I admit this one was a real disappointment for us as well because it was such an obvious confusion as to what Scripture says. We should be praying for these filmmakers that want to bring glory to God and bring others to Jesus because it must be difficult to get everything just right. Prayerfully they will learn from their mistake from this one and not make that one again.

    Well said Sharon. Who are we to DARE to judge? Only God knows the truth of the human heart. Only Jesus is judge. I totally agree sometimes christian films go OTT with certain stuff. Like they think we the general public are stupid and that God can’t open our eyes without them needing to nail it so hard and obvious. And actually, I think it was Oral Robers or Billy Graham- one of those guys, whos son DID die of an overdose, after giving his life to the Lord, and he just was not well enough to keep on the straight path. God told his mother the man had gone to heaven. I know of someone else who did similar. So please do not judge. How do you know the road that has brought someone to the foot of the cross? Jesus came to save the sick, not the healthy. and sometimes sick people are so unwell that they act in unrightous ways still and things go out of control, surely that is Christs problem and not ours? Repentance and coming to the cross are the first baby steps to heaven. Paul talks about us becoming Mature in Christ- it is a jouney, not an instant result. Sometimes the journey goes awry. Again, it is God who judges the living and the dead, not us.Simple.

    I just watched The Encounter on Netflix. That was so beautifully done!!! To put Jesus in the midst of a volatile situation and to speak to each individual and reach the depths of their hearts! And He was speaking to each of us, as we watched and listened to His words, at the same time! The genius behind this movie is the Holy Spirit! Cinematography was beautiful, the acting was beautiful. But this was superb! Loved it, loved it, loved it! It really spoke!!!

    Praise God for Bruce Marchiano and his film making gifts.

    Christian films sometimes stray from the Gospel message for the sake of plot but both The Encounter and its sequel, The Encounter 2: Paradise Lost, have stayed true to the scriptures. I’ve watched both films several times and I can find no glaring doctrinal errors. I pray that many, many, many of the lost are able to view both of these films.
