A funding-by-crowdsourcing press release dated yesterday, August 5, somehow figured out how to mention the Shroud of Turin and the Venice Beach Boardwalk in the same paragraph. (CNN Story on Venice Beach Boardwalk Driver and yes crowdsourcing is one word according to Merriam-Webster). But first watch the 28 second trailer.
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Gold Soul Entertainment is launching a new web media series called ‘Jesus 2015,’ which tells a story based on the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in a modern society. Gold Soul Entertainment is seeking to raise funds for the project through their Indiegogo.com campaign, which will launch Monday, Aug. 5, and will run until Monday, Sept. 30.
With fresh perspective and innovative storytelling, ‘Jesus 2015’ will explore the wealth of possibilities around the Second Coming, with significant ties to historical artifacts like the Shroud of Turin, the best known relic of Jesus and the crucifixion. This cloth was believed to be placed on the body of Jesus at the time of his burial, and an image of a man’s face on the cloth is said to be that of Jesus Christ. The project is intended to excite the youth of America to understand that ‘the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him’ (Matthew 24:44).
This series will follow the story of Chris Doe, a 33-year-old man whose DNA at the time of his arrest is a 99.9 percent match to samples taken from the Shroud of Turin. He is released from police custody after a brief detainment and then sought by leaders of religious and scientific communities for questioning. His last known whereabouts are on the Venice Beach boardwalk in California. Because the world-famous boardwalk receives over 100,000 visitors a day, law enforcement officials are unable to locate him.
Theologians and the scientific community are mystified by the unusual location of Venice Beach, which runs contrary to a millennia of expectation. Few historical objects incite quite the powerful response as the Shroud of Turin, which is cloaked in mystery. This is reflected by the controversy surrounding the Shroud in the news and current events.
This new series will pose the question: is this indeed the Second Coming, and if so, why now? Join Gold Soul Entertainment to tackle this question and embark on a unique and fun journey to bring this message to the public. Contributors will receive exclusive items, information, and perks relevant to the series as the project develops and be a central part of its success.
