Anything But Dry and Boring!

Thank you Edify Media for this review copy.
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.

A startling discovery made in 1986 that offers some insight into Biblical history!
November 17, 2014
2000 years ago much of what was Ancient Israel was destroyed and with it the hopes of the history of the Jewish people and their culture. It is also surprising that with each day, discoveries are being made that not only validate Ancient Israel but fulfill Bible Prophecy and Jesus' Words to the most minute detail. Following some of the great theologians of our day including Franklin Graham, Joel Rosenberg, Jay Sekulow, Skip Heitzig, and Chuck Smith along with some notated archaeologists as they share with you the most recent discovery ever made in the Sea of Gailee.
In the DVD documentary Jesus Boat: Witness to Prophecy by Edify Films, we get a look at not only the history of the destruction of Ancient Israel, the Jewish Temple to the fall of Ancient Rome, but also a divine unveiling of what could quite possibly be one of the fishing boats that the disciples used or even the very same one as Jesus used. The Sea of Gailee is quite small by comparisons of most seas you would think of, measuring just 12 miles long by 7 miles while. Jesus' ministry all took place in a 12-mile radius. His disciples according to the Bible were fisherman.
Scripture references of Isaiah 9:1-2, in which "he will honor Gailee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan - the people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in a land of deep darkness, a light has dawned." This brings a discovery of a boat found beneath the mud in the Sea of Gailee by two fisherman brothers, the Lufans, after a 4 year long drought in Israel. What they found there besides the 2000 year old fishing boat, were Jewish and Roman coins along with a Widow's mite which is what Jesus said the widow placed in the offering that was greater than all the other money given by the people. It was the equivalent of bread and lodging for a day.
Just as the archaeologist's laid their hands on the boat, it began to rain, after so many years of drought in Israel. While the men were praying, the rain suddenly stopped and a double rainbow appeared. The boat would turn out to be 27 feet long and 7 1/2 feet wide, handcrafted by 12 different types of wood. There are more surprising divine signs as you watch this documentary that showcases not only how relevant this is to Israel's history but to further document the Bible in its authenticity.
I received Jesus Boat: Witness to Prophecy compliments of Edify Films and Edify Media Group for my honest opinion. Aside from a free copy of the DVD, I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review. The opinions expressed in this review are strictly my personal opinion. I love that the Bible is being authenticated with new discoveries happening all the time. It validates what I have believed that the Bible is 100% accurate. This is a great documentary that showcases Israel's history from the destruction of Jerusalem as predicted by Jesus, to the discovery of a plaque in a Rome coliseum that validates the Temple to what these discoveries mean from authenticating Bible prophecy. I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars.
