In the Shadow of Gilboa: Reaping & Sowing is a documentary about epic events in the life of the Israelite people during the time of the Judges and Kings of ancient Israel. Filmed on location in northern Israel, this film examines several biblical events that occurred in and around Mt. Gilboa, Beit Shan, and the Jezreel and Harod Valleys. The lessons taught in these places offer truths as enduring as the beautiful settings in which they occurred. The achievements of Gideon and the tragic demise of King Saul are revealed in this thrilling documentary about what happens when you either sow to the Spirit or sow to the flesh.
Dan: City of Unfaithfulness is a documentary showing the significance of Dan as a center of idolatry and unfaithfulness to God. Important aspects of Dan are explored. First, its location in the northern section of Israel helped to define the extent of the land controlled by the Israelites. Second, the modern site of Dan is important because of the archaeological discoveries that have been made. What archaeologists have unearthed really helps us to have a better understanding of both Old Testament life and the full veracity of the Bible. Third, the site of Dan is very important because of the evidence of idolatrous practices confirming the Bible’s description of their unfaithfulness and loss of identity as God’s people.
The Ministry of Jesus in Northern Israel takes the viewer to three famous sites involved in Jesus’ public ministry: Cana, the Mount of Beatitudes, and Caesarea Philippi. In these locations, we learn of Jesus’ personal identity, his preaching, and his power over nature, and then we explore the significance of these events for 21st-century living.
