When the World Needs Hope

David Jeremiah shares the true meaning of Christmas with millions around the world. 

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Christmas is a time to celebrate—family, friends, love, joy, hope. But for many this time of year brings anxiety, loneliness, high exceptions, a lack of joy, and questions about true “peace on earth, goodwill toward men” ever occurring. While it seems the world spins out of control at times and Christmas has become a materialistic celebration, there are purpose and hope at Christmas, and peace is coming.

Last Thanksgiving Turning Point Productions, a division of Turning Point Ministries with David Jeremiah, premiered its first feature length film—Why the Nativity? The message of “stable peace in an unstable world” reached 22 million online viewers and 8 million households through television outlets in both English and Spanish. This year the film is being released in four additional languages—Mandarin, Hindi, Arabic, and Telegu—with the potential to reach 2 billion more people. The message is resonating with a world that needs hope, and it is a message that will never grow old or diminish in significance.

For that reason, Dr. Jeremiah is not stopping with simply re-releasing Why the Nativity? or translating it into additional languages. “Everybody wants to celebrate Christmas because it brings hope; let’s give people ways to be celebrate that point them to the true hope of the world,” Dr. Jeremiah recently said to a crowd while speaking in New York City.
