Road to Emmaus Movie and DVD (with Bible Studies)
Journey with several first century travelers. Hear ancient Biblical mysteries revealed. Learn why the life and death of Jesus is so important to you today. "A powerful and compelling film." This 30 minute film follows the story of Luke 24:13-49 and imagines what the conversation between Jesus and his two disciples might have been. The movie draws from actual Biblical accounts and passages found throughout the Scriptures to build this conversation.
Come Follow Me Movie and DVD (with Bible Studies)
Come Follow Me is a movie that depicts what it means to be a disciple, a follower of Jesus. The movie recounts the experience of the Apostle Peter—his misunderstanding, denial, doubts, and fears. The answer for Peter is Jesus who assures his disciple of forgiveness through his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. The way for Peter to be a follower of Jesus is found in the power and promises of Jesus’ word. In the same way as it is for us. The movie dramatizes Peter’s progression from the denier before the crucifixion to the preacher of repentance and salvation at Pentecost. Recalling Jesus’ invitation to Peter and others to follow him and become fishers of men, the film is entitled Come Follow Me.
My Son, My Savior Movie and DVD (with Bible Studies)
Only one woman had the unique privilege to call Jesus her son. Mary was blessed to be the mother of the Savior who was sent by God to rescue the world from sin and death. Watch as Mary experiences the miracle of Jesus' coming and humbly grows in the understanding that her son is also her Savior. The good news is that Jesus is your Savior too.
To The Ends of the Earth Movie and DVD (with Bible Studies)
The film follows Paul's remarkable visit to the city of Philippi, recorded in Acts 16. Viewers will see how Paul connected with people from all walks of life, demonstrating that the good news of Jesus is indeed for all people—to the very ends of the earth.
End Times: Old and New Testament Prophecies of the End Times
The End Times is where all of us are headed, along with the whole world. Is this cause for fear – or comfort? We'll spend time reviewing topics like death, the signs of the end, the end of the world, Judgment Day, and Eternity. Beliefs about the End Times can be confusing! What comes to your mind when you hear words like the Antichrist, the Rapture, the Millennium, the Tribulation, or Armageddon? These words – and the meaning of the words – have become the cause for a lot of confusion and concern among Christians. We'll take the time to examine how different people use these terms. We can help others understand the End Times better. This kind of study can help us get a better grasp on events between now and the end of the world. And it can help us understand why some people end up misunderstanding features and events of the End Time. And then? We can better explain to others what we believe, why we believe it, and how this is important to all of us. And keep it centered in Christ and filled with love.
