Some events described in the Bible were so momentous that they reshaped entire nations, changing the course of history.
Like the 10 plagues that literally destroyed the land of Egypt… Like well over a million people leaving Egypt overnight… Like the conquest of Canaan.
Yet most archaeologists today have concluded that there is no evidence that the events described in Exodus ever happened. In Patterns of Evidence: Exodus, filmmaker Timothy Mahoney sets out to answer the question, “Is this foundational event of the Bible really just a myth?”
The answer is a resounding “No!” The evidence is there all right—but archaeologists have consistently assigned it to the wrong time period, breaking the connection between the evidence and its biblical causes.
This film showcases amazing evidence of the arrival, multiplication, and then descent into slavery of a Semitic people in Egypt; evidence for the collapse of Egypt, along with the mass exodus of the Semitic slaves; evidence for the conquest of Canaan, with sites like Jericho lining up perfectly with the biblical text.
A compelling watch, featuring interviews with leading archaeologists and biblical scholars against a backdrop of stunning video and animation, it is no wonder Patterns of Evidence: Exodus has already picked up a slew of awards!
The Film “War Room” has stunned box office watchers by nearly dethroning “Straight Outta Compton” as the weekend’s highest-grossing domestic release with its $11 million debut. That’s particularly impressive given that the religious drama was playing on a third of the number of screens.
The film’s message on the power of prayer and that prayer is spiritual warfare not to be undertaken by lukewarm Christians is a much needed message for the church at this time. We need to get the word out about this awesome movie which will challenge all Christians about their attitude to prayer. We need more prayer warriors in the church and this film will help achieve that objective.
“War Room,” the story of a disintegrating marriage rescued by intense prayer, was produced for a slender $3 million and distributed by Sony’s Affirm division. It is on pace to be among the Kendrick brothers’ biggest hits, rivaling the $34.5 million brought in by “Courageous” and the $33.5 million generated from “Fireproof.”
Getting the word out about the picture involved a massive grassroots effort. Facebook was particularly active, as the film’s page attracted more than half a million fans, though its presence on Twitter was only marginal. More important was the work that the Kendricks did to raise awareness. The brothers shot set videos to keep audiences informed about the production and prepared packets that they sent to churches in the USA that included materials that could be incorporated into sermons prior to the film’s release.
Matthew McConaughey wins the best actor OSCAR for “Dallas Buyers Club”.
Amazing how the world responded with ridicule and hate to a simple acknowledgment of God.
Why is this, other than a clear example that they unwittingly follow the one who usurped the throne of this world, Satan.
The Bible clearly reveals we are involved in spiritual warfare and the war is hotting up as the world increasingly rejects God and His commandments. God led me to a great resource on Spiritual warfare just when I needed it – The Three Battlegrounds by Francis Frangipane.
I love Matthew McConaughey’s lead up to his acknowledgment of God.
“There’s three things I need each day. One of them is something to look up to, another is something to look forward to, and another is someone to chase”. then he drops the bomb.
First off, I want to thank GOD, cause that’s the one I look up to. He’s graced my life with opportunities that I know is not of my hand or any other human hand. HE has shown me that it’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. In the words of the late Charles Lawton who said ‘when you got God, you got a friend ….
He then continued with the rest of his speech.
For Christians his acknowledgment of God was encouraging and it is wonderful to know that God has his people in the media.
It is also wonderful that new Christian films such as SON OF GOD will shortly reach our theatres.
In fact three major movies based on Biblical narrative will be released in 2014 and four more are in the works for 2015. It is as if Hollywood has realized that it pays to provide movies based on God’s word. God can use anyone to achieve His purposes.
Pray God will over rule in the production of the Biblical movies that have not been produced and will use SON OF GOD that is already in cinema’s.
The two big budget movies this year are the SON OF GOD, already a box office success in the USA and NOAH which stars Russell Crowe is due later in the year.
