With newly discovered evidence from Galilee in the days Jesus walked the earth, this docudrama presents the coming Rapture as a proven fact. Featuring interviews with leading theologians and powerful cinematic reenactments of Jesus’ ministry, Before the Wrath is the key to discovering what Jesus’ listeners clearly understood about the Rapture through His teachings.

You’ve no doubt heard stories of great animosity between Jewish Israelis and Palestinians in the media. Are these stories blown out of proportion, or is the divide as troubling as you think?
Look through the lens of an American Christian as he immerses himself in the land of Israel and studies both groups. His journey reveals the complexity of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the humanity of Jewish people, Muslims, and Christians alike in the Holy Land.
Proverbs teaches us that a wise person hears both sides. As believers it’s our responsibility to abide by this important Scripture.
