Synopsis

Biblical Women
An investigation into the age-old mystery surrounding the identity and character of Mary Magdalene, one of the Bible’s best known women, produces some startling insights. Who was Mary Magdalene? Was she a fallen woman, rescued from a sinful life by Jesus? Or was she Christ’s beloved disciple? What role did she play among the disciples of Jesus? Was she truly the source, perhaps even the author, of one of the Gospels?

Biblical Prophecies
Did biblical prophets have special abilities that allowed them to foretell the future? For thousands of years, history has recorded the words of prophets – men and women who seem to have uncanny insights into events of the future. For most of us, the notion of predicting the future seems inconceivable. Yet according to the ancient prophets, there are portents of doom facing the nations of the earth… times of famine, war, and cataclysmic natural disasters. Could it be that these prophets were witnesses to our generation?

Biblical Old Testament Mysteries
The southern end of the Dead Sea is believed to be the ancient Land of Canaan, site of the legendary cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. According to the Bible, these cities, along with three others, were destroyed by fire and brimstone. But did these cities ever exist? Were there really two cities called Sodom and Gomorrah that were so wicked they were utterly demolished by God? Has evidence been found that finally proves the biblical account and actually pinpoints the exact site of those five cities? Archaeological discoveries include the findings of actual bodies encased in salt, as the Bible states in Genesis. Join us as we shed new light on an age-old argument: were Sodom and Gomorrah real cities, or moralistic myths?

Dove Review

Biblical Women This DVD gives an interesting background of Mary Magdalene and debunks popular myths. The documentary also speaks of other women in the Bible, and its scholarly approach along with its re-enactments make it well worth viewing.
Biblical Prophecies This documentary defines what a prophet is and gives biblical examples, such as Isaiah and Jonah. The documentary explains in amazing detail how prophecies from Zechariah about the messiah were fulfilled 483 years later in Christ. It also contrasts genuine prophets with false prophets and gives interesting historical information. This segment is rich in information and should please a lot of people.
Biblical Old Testament Mysteries Did God really destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and the Tower of Babel? This documentary features comments from such Jewish historians as Josephus and a Greek historian. The site that was allegedly where Sodom and Gomorrah were located is visited, and its remains are closely examined. This is a fascinating look at the mysteries in the Old Testament.
