2012 Spark and Echo Arts Curators Eric and Jeffrey Leiser have created this fascinating short film created in response to John 4:13-14: Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” The theme of water is evident here, and the film captures its metaphorical and historical significance in this passage.
