Our family reviewed the movie Exploring Ephesus, City of Apostles. We were provided with a DVD which had a 58 minute video plus bonus features. You hop in the car with Dr. Mark Wilson and Dr. Andy Jackson for a road tour of Ephesus and see some famous sites from the New Testament. You will study several locations in the region that Paul traveled during his missionary journeys. You will see ruins and walk through archways. In addition to the road trip you will also board a boat for a trip to Patmos where the Apostle John received God’s Revelation. It was interesting to see the church that has built over the supposed site of the very cave where John sat and learned from God. You will explore some of the features and events at the time Revelations was written and see how that might have affected the messages of the letters to the seven churches. You get to see the amphitheater that was the sight of a riot over the decline in idol worship that was affecting the economy of Ephesus. You also get to see some beautiful artwork hidden in caves that early Christians used to worship during a time of persecution. You will learn why the sight where the Apostle John is buried is believed to be the authentic burial-place. This and so much more await you as you venture through these ancient sites.
The bonus features include several commentaries on the related topics of the Book of Ephesians and the Seven Churches. Also, there are Lessons for Today. They round out the bonus features with a movie trailer and a music video. The music video features some of the wonderful music heard in the background of the video along with some of the best video footage.
We watched the Exploring Ephesus one afternoon and plan to watch it again. The cinematography is breathtaking and really gives you a feel for being on a tour of the area. I love how they combined historical information, Bible verses, and visits to the actually sites.
The video was both entertaining and informative. I had never really given much thought to how many of the New Testaments locations included the birthplace of Paul were actually located in Turkey. I learned that the Isle of Patmos is now a part of Greece and is a tourist location. The music was a wonderful backdrop to the whole video experience as well. I found the music video in the bonus features to be very relaxing.
