Testament:
The Parables Retold

ANGEL STUDIOS
Director: Paul Syrstad 

Paul has been arrested, the Fisherman has been sighted, and the early church is being raided. Luke, Paul's traveling companion, hides out with the early disciples in the hopes of furthering his research into a report on Jesus. But Luke gets more than he bargained for when he begins to hear the great storyteller's own stories; the parables.

7 Churches of Revelation

TRINITY DIGITAL
Director: Magnin Etienne 

In the 1st century A.D., Asia Minor experienced a strong ideological revolution. What would become one of the greatest world religions was challenging ancient pagan worship and the order established by almighty Rome and spreading like wildfire across the whole of the Roman Empire: Christianity was on the move. This is the hostile environment in which Saint John wrote his book of Revelation.

 

One of the most complex and most mysterious books of the Bible, the text addresses seven churches, located in what is now modern-day Turkey, who each received a personal letter. Who were these churches and what did they represent? What can they teach us about the history of our civilization? What do they have to say to Christians of today and those who live in the 1st century?

Love Works: A Story of Healing and Hope

VISION VIDEO
Director: Dave Peters

Chris Conlee was born into a family with two flawed and broken parents who only became more dysfunctional after the death of Chris's 18-year-old brother, Bubba. Faced with his father's explosive temper and impossible expectations that no one could ever meet, Chris would eventually walk away from a promising professional golf career to follow a calling to the ministry.

 

See how Jesus used Chris's difficult childhood to prepare and equip him for a life devoted to helping others overcome their traumatic pasts. Witness how God miraculously brought healing to the wounded relationship between Chris and his father - and how that healing is available to all.
