I tried to publish this yesterday, but after I got it posted, discovered that the 3-D effect I had observed on YouTube wasn’t working here on the embed. Or at least it wasn’t showing up on my computer. So I took it down to try and figure out why it wasn’t displaying properly. About the only thing I can come up with is that the scan-the-crowd capability works better when the video is displayed at a larger size. Maybe they’ve still got a few bugs to work out of this technology, or maybe I just haven’t learned the art of embedding it properly. At any rate, click on the video. If you’re not able to view the entire panorama, then click the link to view it on YouTube, and it should work for you there.
The interesting thing about this video is the huge number of people who showed up at this Easter service. When you start scanning about the crowd, you quickly come to see that attendance was well up into the thousands. It is said that one of those who came to the service was Vladimir Putin. I would guess a number of other Russian officials were present as well, along with, of course, vast numbers of ordinary people. It seems Jesus Christ lives–in Russia.
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete. This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
–1 John 1:1-5
Glory to God in his greatness.
