The Death of Jesus
This month, we will be looking at the events surrounding the Death of Jesus on the cross. In the Gospel of Matthew 27:50- 54 there are clues.
50 “And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
51 At that moment, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52, and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”
Lawyer and filmmaker Rick Larson begins on a journey to answer the question, “Is there any evidence of an earthquake from the Jerusalem area during Christ’s crucifixion?” We will be exploring the making of his film, The Christ Quake, and hear what Rick learned about this incredible event for the Salvation of the world.
Rick Larson will talk about the decision that many of us face in our lives. Are we willing to “go where God leads?” Upon the successful release of The Star of Bethlehem, people asked Rick what was next. Hear how he discerned the next steps for his life and how that might guide you in…
How are we using our time that we have been given in this life? We have all heard the saying, “life is short”. The Bible expands on this thought even further in 1 Peter 1:24-25 For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers…
Have you ever felt that God has given you something to do, yet it seemed like it might be complicated and you don’t know where to start? Tim Mahoney and Rick Larson talk about the process of following through on the things we might be called to do. They also talk about why it is…
Do you have friends or family members who have questions about the Bible? In this video, Tim and Rick talk about the importance of making thought-provoking films and how they help both believers and non-believers have a deeper understanding about the events of the Bible and how God has acted throughout history.
How do we follow God’s path? Listen to the advice that Rick Larson gives from his own personal experience on how to make it through the ups and downs of life. He encourages us that God will come through if it is something he wants done.
The world is changing very rapidly and this means, in some cases, that physical evidence for the Bible is being lost. Learn why it is so important to document biblical evidence for the next generation. To demonstrate this challenge Rick will share several scenes from his film “Christ Quake”.
The quality of a film is deeply reliant on its musical score. Rick Larson discusses the amazing emotional quality that his wife Julie adds to the film as the music composer. Hear her exceptional talent as you view select scenes from The Christ Quake.
How do you make a movie about dirt compelling? Rick discusses this challenge and how his film, The Christ Quake, gives him the opportunity to encourage the body of Christ to know that Jesus is firmly rooted in space, time, and history.
