Type: Religious Films
Time: 30 to 90 minutes
Short Take: Well done
A 150-seat theater hidden away behind the facade of the Temple of the Great King is used for the screening of films that speak directly to believers. Twice each day, The Seed of Promise is shown.
This handsomely produced film, shot on location in Israel in high-definition video, encapsulates the religious message of The Holy Land Experience. Beginning with a depiction of the Roman sack of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., the film travels back in time to the Creation, where we see Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and forward again to the almost sacrifice of Abraham atop Mount Moriah. The 30-minute film ends with Jesus, arisen from the dead, visiting the lands around Jerusalem and making Himself known to His followers.
The rest of the day, a selection of feature-length films produced by TBN—currently Lion of Judah, The Emissary, and One Night with the King—are screened in their entirety. Between films, the theater hosts "Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord" karaoke, where guests can get up and sing spiritual standards; think of it as Aramaic Idol.
