As an Easter gift to the world, the LDS Church today released "He is Risen," a seven-and-a-half-minute video focused on the last week of Jesus Christ's mortal life.

The video, which can be viewed and downloaded at lds.org, is a compilation of several of the church's new series of Bible videos based on the Life of Jesus Christ, taken directly from the language of the King James version of the New Testament. The new videos from the series being used in "He is Risen" include:

The Savior's triumphal entry into Jerusalem

The Last Supper

The intercessory prayer

Gethsemane

Jesus before the Sanhedrin

Jesus brought before Pilate

The scourging and crucifixion of Christ

Jesus' body is laid in a tomb

And Jesus is resurrected

All of these individual videos are completed and available online through the Bible videos website as well as on iTunes, Facebook and the LDS Media Library. It is also available through Roku.

There are also free mobile apps for both Apple and Android platforms available through the Bible videos website.

"The Church is pleased to add these new vignettes to The Life of Jesus Christ Bible Videos library and mobile app as the Easter season approaches," said Elder Patrick Kearon of the church's First Quorum of the Seventy. "These videos can help individuals visualize the ministry, sacrifice, and Resurrection of our Savior. We invite everyone to share these resources with friends and family and to apply the teachings they represent in their own lives."

The compiled “He is Risen” video has been edited with new music and graphics to fit into the extended format. Like all of the videos in the Bible videos series, "He is Risen" is available to the general public free of charge. Last December, President Henry B. Eyring said the video series is a "gift to the world" from the church.
