BIOGRAPHY Best Scene Reading of Yeshua, by Edmund Jonah

Genre: Drama, Biography

YESHUA! is the humanizing of the Jew who became the God of millions, placing the charismatic preacher in that tense, thrilling and turbulent political time when Messiahs sprouted like wild flowers in the spring to oust the Romans from the Holy Land, and illustrating with plenty of action how his mission leads to his inevitable end on the cross.

CAST LIST:

Narrator: Gabriel Darku
Yochanan: Brandon Knox
Herodias: Angelica Alejandro

Get to know the writer:

 1. What is your screenplay about?

A journey through the short, tragic life of Jesus the Jew and the people who impacted his life.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Historical drama

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It is a novel look at the Jesus story that is as highly entertaining as it is instructive and surprising.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Fascinating Engaging

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

I believe that would be the 1930s version of ‘The Great Waltz’ which I first saw in India when it was re-released in the early 1950s, though there are others I have seen several times as well, like ‘The Quiet Man,’ ‘Casablanca,’ ‘The King and I’ and ‘Showboat,’ the one with Paul Robeson

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

It took me about 35 years to get the novel to as close as I wanted it to be and it took me about 2 years to finish the scenario.

That would be about 38 stories (most published), lectures and articles, about 15 verses and several song lyrics.

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

I am always listening to music but ‘I’ll Get By’ has a special place in my heart. It was the song to which my wife and I danced at our wedding and it summed up how I felt and still feel about her after 59 years. Another song I listen to and sing a lot is ‘You’ll Never Know.’

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Learning how a screenplay is written and cutting it down.

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

The theatre, movies and lecturing – and my granddaughters

11. You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your
