Plan of Salvation ________________

The Acclaimed Network Television Mini-Series

Winner of Two Emmy Awards

"Two key pillars of Early Christianity and Western Civilization.  But in their own day, the world didn't want them."

An Epic Mini-Series

This epic network television mini-series brings to life the precarious existence of early Christianity.  The new movement is beset by violent opposition from without and constant turmoil from within.  Two key leaders emerge--Peter and Paul--who struggle to keep the faith alive.  This dramatic presentation follows the pair, together and separately, through three epochal decades.

Peter (Robert Foxworth) is arrested.

Included are the stoning of Stephen, the road to Damascus, their encounter in Jerusalem, their conflicts over how the word of Christ should be spread.  Paul's travels to Asia Minor and Greece, Peter and Paul's clashes over Jewish law, and Peter's decision to follow in Paul's courageous footsteps.  The drama concludes in Rome in approximately A.D. 64 with the beheading of Paul and the crucifixion of Peter under Emperor Nero.

Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of an Evangelist, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). __________________________________

Our Comments:

"This is the best.  Great acting with Anthony Hopkins, Raymond Burr, Jose Ferrer.  Filmed beautifully.  The wonder of this Mini-Series is that is so filled with scripture and so scriptural!  It is hard to believe that it was even allowed on secular television!  In the whole three hours and fourteen minutes, there are only three or four minor deviations from the Bible.  After this film blesses you, you'll be blessing your friends by letting them watch it.  They don't make them any better than this."
