Development Pitch

Is God real? Does God really speak to us personally? Is Jesus the Jewish Messiah and the only way to God? When my Gentile co-workers told me if I didn't believe in Jesus, I would burn in hell, I thought they were crazy! I thought how dare they say that to me, didn't they know about the Holocaust? But then I thought, what if they were right and God sent them to warn me? There is nothing in this world more important than being right with God! For seven months, I listened to what they had to say. At the same time, I filed for bankruptcy and I felt like my life was a total failure? I cried out to God for the truth about Jesus, and I saw a vision of Jesus on my ceiling and knew God answered me. I knew Jesus is the Jewish messiah. Jesus healed me of bitterness, anger, love of money and alcoholism. Jesus told me to move from Long Island to Atlanta and work at The Coca-Cola Company. If Jesus is really the Jewish Messiah who is God in the flesh, and told me to move to Atlanta and work at The Coca-Cola Company, then I better do that! Yes, I had doubts, I’m Jewish and believe in Jesus. Who ever heard of a Jew believing in Jesus? But if God calls, you must answer Him. I followed Jesus to Atlanta and was able to write a bestselling book (now also a television program) about my adventures that spanned some 25 years! It would be incredible to have a movie about a Jewish person who meets Jesus and documents his miraculous personal relationship for 25 years!
