A couple weeks ago I showed you “God’s Fingerprints in Japan” part one and now I bring you part two. Part one won the Telly Award in 2005 and part two again won it again in 2007. This time God’s Fingerprints in Japan begins by asking these three questions:
- In this modern age of Japan is there still a place for the culture of their ancestors?
- If so, what place does it have in modern society?
- What will become of Japanese heritage and culture?
Evidence of the Christianity in the history of Japan was the focus of part one while part two focuses on modern Japanese society. The video gives a lot of statistic that reveal the status of Japan today and the struggles the younger generation of Japanese face to find true meaning and identity in life. “God’s Fingerprints in Japan” again shows that the God of the bible has always been the God of Japanese people by explaining in further detail the Shinto god Amenominakanushi (天之御中主神). The video concludes with a retelling of the prodigal son and two of my favorite Japanese worships songs.
Japanese and English translations of the video are provided below.
I am grateful to Aloha Ke Akua Ministries for the production of “God’s Fingerprints in Japan 1 & 2.” If you would like to know more about these video’s on DVD please check out part one of this series I posted here.
