Road to Emmaus — It is a story that's captivated the imagination of many generations. Mourning the death of Jesus, two first-century travelers were joined by a mysterious stranger. Over the next few hours, the stranger revealed many mysteries that lay hidden in the ancient Scriptures. Soon, the purpose of Jesus’ life became clear...and the travelers’ sadness turned to great joy. Now you can learn what they learned. Discover the key to life...on the Road to Emmaus. Starring Bruce Marchiano.

The Third Day — On the third day after Jesus' crucifixion, eyewitnesses reported that they found an empty tomb and had an encounter with a living, breathing Jesus of Nazareth. What proof do we have that the resurrection really happened? This intriguing documentary digs deep into the biblical and historical accounts and explores these questions: Did the disciples steal the body? Did they hallucinate and only imagine they had met the risen Jesus or did they create a myth in order to keep the movement going? Scholars take a hard look and offer honest, thought-provoking answers. The Third Day is an excellent resource for both skeptics and believers alike. Includes both a 30 minute and a 55 minute version.

I Believe in Easter — Easter - It is a word with origins in pagan tradition and yet it has come to embody the oldest and most important festival in Christianity. Discover the origins of Easter in this thoroughly researched and emotionally charged docu-drama. Trace the history of Easter to ancient Egypt where the story finds its roots in the deliverance of the Israelites from slavery and learn how Passover symbolism in intricately woven into the events surrounding the crucifixion of Jesus Christ - The Lamb of God. Learn how the church adapted and transformed pagan tradition into the celebration of the Resurrection. See how culture, emperors, apostles and popes have influenced how we celebrate Easter today. The program features new powerfully dramatized scenes from the gospels, along with documentary footage shot in the Holy Land and at the Vatican, plus insightful commentary from church scholars and historians.

The Week that Changed the World — The resurrection happened. It's not just the belief of Christians, it's borne out by history, archaeology, and science. This documentary takes viewers step by step through the events of Holy Week—shedding light on the key players, unraveling the political intrigue, and answering longstanding questions about what happened, and why. Professor of ancient history and world-renowned expert Dr. Paul L. Maier details the story, along with maps, graphics, and remarkable dramatic re-creations to bring Holy Week alive in a whole new way.

My Son, My Savior — From the makers of the award winning biblical dramas Road to Emmaus and Come Follow Me comes My Son, My Savior, a powerful portrayal of the life of Jesus as seen through the eyes of his mother, Mary. My Son, My Savior imagines Mary’s childhood, growing up in a strict Jewish household, celebrating the annual feasts such as Passover and hearing the prophecies about a coming Messiah who would redeem Israel.  Little did she know the vital role she would play in the fulfillment of those prophecies. Using the Gospel accounts as its framework, we see how Mary responded to the events of Jesus' life and how her understanding of Jesus’ mission grew over time. The film is created to be a powerful evangelistic tool, bringing the Gospel story to life from a unique perspective.
