Excellent film of historic nature. The agruments offered throughout the film are convincing. Makes you wonder if this could, in fact, be the boat Jesus used almost 2000 yrs ago to preach His message from and more.
Wow. Jesus Boat Witness to Prophecy was an absolutely awesome movie. I previewed the DVD documentary this evening with my Bible reading, history loving teenagers and my husband. All want to watch it again.
This was a well organized historical documentary that was anything but dry and boring. The entire nation of Israel is a miracle. It is the only nation that was ever born in a day. Jesus Boat revealed prophecies from thousands of years ago from both the Old and New Testaments, including those of Jesus himself, and showed their fulfillment. That was so valuable to me. Although I've read the Old and New Testaments repeatedly, I simply do not understand prophecy.
Jesus Boat Witness to Prophecy showed not only how the Jesus Boat was found in 1986 by fishermen, excavated, and preserved, but gave a super overview of the history of the area of Galilee in Israel that Jesus lived and preached in as well as a history of Jerusalem.
In our family, music often makes the movie. The music that accompanied this movie set the mood and built interest and intensity at the appropriate times. Well done.
I highly recommend this movie. This is the best documentary I've watched in ages. I think my children would agree. I've made them watch many documentaries over the years. They wanted to watch this one and want to watch it again.
I don't remember hearing about the discovery of the boat, but the documentary did sound intriguing. The DVD is is better than I had hoped for, and one that I recommend to all believers and history buffs. Called the Jesus boat because it has been dated to the time when Jesus was on Earth, it was discovered by brothers, Moshe and Yuval Lufan, during a severe drought in the 1980s. This story alone, with the trials of carefully excavating the boat, various groups claiming ownership, and time factors that had to be considered, along with the tales of God's blessings and solutions to problems are fascinating on their own. But, I was completely absorbed in the realization of all of the prophecy fulfilled as Scripture was compared to historical events. This DVD is one that historians (particularly of Jewish history) and those with an interest in archaeology...or even fishing, will enjoy. As a Christian, this documentary made the Bible come even more vividly to life.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this DVD from Elliot Wallach to review. I was not required to write a positive review.
Jesus Boat Witness to Prophecy is an excellent DVD. So much history from the Bible and the history of that day are told in this DvD. It is so interesting to see how they found the book and what leads up to how the boat was there. Everything just fell into line in just the right time. It is a miracle how it was discovered and at just the right time.
The boat was buried in mud, that is what kept it from rotting away and you will see in the DVD how they had to keep it from falling apart once they got it out.
The people narrating and commenting on this movie are Franklin Graham, Joel Rosenberg, Jay Sekulow, Skip Heitzig, Chuck Smith and more.
There isnt a boring moment on this DVD as you learn about the Jesus Boat and history involved. This is a great tool for your family, church or any group of people who love History.
Highly recommend this movie.
