Light of the World - Jack Chick's Magnum Opus

o Introduction

Given the subject matter of Light of the World, and the proximity of its release to that of a certain other film about the life of Jesus with massive emphasis on graphic violence, it feels like an extremely bad pun to refer to it as Jack Chick's passion project.

But to be entirely fair, there isn't really a better term. Chick and his regular artist Fred Carter spent fifteen years on the project, with 362 paintings illustrating what Jack Chick considered to be the important takeaways of the Bible. He puts particular emphasis on the crucifixion of Jesus, which encompasses about twenty minutes of the video and is presented in the kind of graphic detail that even Mel Gibson would have balked at.

The video also features narration by Infomercial Voiceover Guy David Jeremiah, and a MIDI Orchestra soundtrack by composer John Campbell, who according to his site has worked on numerous projects for Focus on the Family, and a single episode of Mummies Alive.

It's often considered to be a Back-To-Basics gospel presentation for Chick, after being somewhat sidetracked by conspiracy theories. He still spends the last five minutes going off on how Catholics worship a pagan goddess and Muslims worship a "moon god" though. Indeed, he was convinced that if he didn't, God would have killed him on the spot.

Chick went a little bit extra with the release of the film, arranging a whole premiere event at an old Ontario auditorium. Chick even had an exclusive tract for the event, with the catchy title of Hi! You Are About To See... The Most Powerful Soul Winning Film... Yet! which encouraged readers to distribute sets of Chick's 25-piece Bible Tract series along with copies of the film, as well as encouraging them to send money to the especially formed Light of the World Project.

And that brings us to the greatest mystery of the whole project. The Light of the World Project was an organization separate from Chick Publications with the express purpose of translating and distributing the movie in over a thousand languages (in the promotional video the head of the organization, Michael Helms, says a single translation would have cost six thousand bucks. This means that they were hoping to raise six million dollars!). We may never know how much they actually DID raise. Today, the project is defunct PDF. Their listed address is now being rented out to another church group, and their website went so barely noticed that not even the Wayback Machine was able to archive it. Given that Chick Publications currently sells the DVD in 23 languages, it's safe to say that the whole 1000 languages thing never panned out.


o The Film


o Chapter #1 - Creation & the Fall of Man

In a telling of the Adam and Eve story more remeniscient of Paradise Lost than of Genesis, God creates the earth, then casts down Satan when he rebels. Later, God finishes creating the world, creating a man and a woman - Adam and Eve - to live in the garden of Eden as long as they never eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Satan takes the form of a giant, iridescent, bipedal cobra with arms and legs and successfully tempts Adam and Eve into eating from the forbidden tree. God banishes Adam and Eve from Eden, and Satan takes control over the earth.

o Chapter #2 - God's Law & Man's Rebellion

Jack Chick's Old Testament Any% speedrun. Adam and Eve have sons, one of whom murders the other. As time passes, mankind becomes increasingly violent, and begins to worship idols and get tattoos. God singles out Abraham and Sarah to be the ancestors of His chosen people, the children of Israel, but their descendents find themselves enslaved to the Egyptians. God sends Moses to deliver His people, using a succession of plagues to ruin Egypt and free the Israelites. He then gives them the Ten Commandments, which they immediately break, leading to infanticide, idolatry and monarchy. God sends prophets to get them to behave but the prophets just get murdered and the Israelites get repeatedly enslaved.

o Chapter #3 - This Was Your Life!

We now interrupt this interpretation of Biblical narrative to give you a remake of Chick's most famous tract, This Was Your Life. A rich man is suddenly killed , and taken to the Great White Throne Judgement to be judged by God with the rest of the world's sinners. God commands an angel to open the Book of Life, and upon not finding the man's name, sends him away from His presence where another angel casts into the Lake of Fire.

o Chapter #4 - Birth of Jesus Christ

Back to the story. The prophet Isaiah announces that a virgin shall conceive, causing Satan to keep a close watch on every virgin in Israel. Seven hundred years later, with Israel now occupied by the Roman Empire, God sends an angel to fill the Virgin Mary in on her impending unexpected pregnancy, then Jesus is zapped into her womb by the Holy Spirit. Satan attempts to destroy Mary and Jesus, first in a failed attempt to turn Joseph against her, then through a demonically inspired census forcing Mary and Joseph to travel to Bethlehem with Mary heavily pregnant, resulting in Jesus being born in a stable behind an inn. Upon the child's birth, angels appear to shepherds to announce the birth of Chirst.

o Chapter #5 - His Youth

Jesus is circumcised and named, Mary sacrifices two turtledoves then takes the Baby Jesus to see an extremely old man so that he can die happy. A whole convoy of Wise Men show up with gifts for the infant Jesus. When King Herod finds out what's going on, he orders every male infant be killed, but an angel warns Joseph in a dream to flee to Egypt, so he, Mary and Jesus escape the slaughter. When Jesus is 12 years old, the family visits Jerusalem for the Passover feast, and Jesus goes off to the Great Temple to debate the doctors and priests. Another 18 years later, Jesus is baptized by John The Baptist, and God announces him to be His son. Jesus is then led into the desert to be tempted by Satan, who just gets a verbal beatdown for his troubles. Jesus begins his ministry, calling people to repent and love their enemies, and smashing up the money changers' tables in the Temple of God.

o Chapter #6 - Ministry

Jesus heals a leper, multiplies fishes and loaves, walks on water, raises Lazarus from the dead, casts out demons, all the Greatest Hits. This earns him the ire of the religious establishmnent, who he openly calls out, causing them to sweat profusely. Jesus goes about declaring that anyone who believes in him is not condemned, and anyone who doesn't believe in him is condemned already. He declares himself "the way, the truth and the life," which enrages his enemies even further.

o Chapter #7 - Betrayal & Conviction

Jesus enters Jerusalem riding a donkey, while Satan moves to plot his death. At the Last Supper, Jesus explains to his disciples that he is to shed his blood and die, breaking bread to symbolize this. Satan enters into Jesus's disciple Judas, who betrays Jesus for 30 silver. Satan summons his forces in a dramatic display. That night, Jesus agonizes in the garden of Gethsemane, sweating blood. Judas turns up and kisses Jesus on the cheek to identify him, at which point he is arrested. Jesus is taken to the High Priest where he is beaten to a pulp, then taken to Pontius Pilate, who has him scourged to pieces... and which we are treated to in graphic detail.

o Chapter #8 - Crucifixion & Resurrection

A crown of thorns is mashed onto Jesus's head, who is then beaten up even more and spat upon. Jesus is returned to Pilate, who seeks to release Jesus, but seeing that he's lost control of the situation, literally washes his hands of the affair and hands him over to be crucified. Jesus is forced to carry his cross to Golgotha. He is crucified alongside two thieves who don't get mentioned again because the video needs to spend more time focusing on Jesus's wounds and pain in graphic medical detail. Eventually he dies and is buried, and three days later he raises himself from the dead and starts yelling lines from Revelation at nobody in particular. Satan starts yelling at the cross, defeated. Jesus appears to over 500 witnesses, commands them to preach the Gospel to every creature. We then swing by hell for a while to watch various sinners getting chucked into the Lake of Fire.

o Chapter #9 - Invitation to Receive Jesus

Back on Earth... Jesus wraps up his ministry and ascends into Heaven. The narrator then addresses the viewer, saying that they too can be saved, before going off on one about how Satan has spent the time since his defeat inventing Buddhism, Catholicism, Islam, and according to the pictures, the United Nations. We wrap up with an altar call where the narrator leads the audience through the Sinner's Prayer. Then the film simply and unceremoniously ends. No credits or logos.
