Update on The Real Jesus DVD

I am currently working on editing the Stephen Mansfield interviews for The Real Jesus. His comments on “Was Jesus a Myth?” were suitable for YouTube. I put one Mansfield clip up on YouTube last night and already it has a lot of views. This may end up in an “extras” assortment on the DVD. An entire video on “Jesus as Myth” might be a good seller. This idea is gaining momemtum among militant atheists and there isn’t a lot out there to refute it simply because it is so ridiculous.

I am not going to use this clip in the Real Jesus because it’s a can of worms. The old saying applies here, “He who frames he question wins the debate.” In my next post, I’ll frame a few such questions for the Jesus Mythists.

Strangely, I discovered how popular the Jesus Mythist position is among young postmodernists when I posted my refutation of the liberal critics on YouTube. The Jesus Mythist position is not covered in The Real Jesus simply because in refuting liberalism, the more extreme position of the Mythists just appears to be silly.

Besides Mansfield’s sound bite, I don’t have any other material on the “Jesus as Myth” position, so it seems out of place. I think there is one possible place it fits in, but I think it breaks the flow of ideas no matter where I would put it. Mansfield’s other quotes will make up two good clips on the DVD and I will use a lot of B-Roll to cover it. His topic was to critique the sudden popularity of the Gnostic Gospels as a popular writer and historian.

I am having some difficulty knowing how expansive The Real Jesus DVD should be. With the added interviews and all the extra materials, part one is now well over 90 minutes up from about 60 minutes just a month ago. I’ll see just how long when I finish the next section. I am constantly coming up with more material to add to part one and what I need to do is get this project in the can and move on to the next one. It’s taken more than two years since I started editing the video, but several times I didn’t work on it for a month or longer and I am doing this as a part time effort.

The YouTube cultural phenomenon rescued the project last year when I redid the entire series as a video podcast. From that I began to get a lot of interest in the project. It’s now due out in November with Eric Holmberg as the narrator and host. There is a lot more to cover. There will likely be a Real Jesus parts 2 and 3. Judging just by the reaction to the YouTube videos, this is a powerful ministry for years to come. I’ll soon have 100,000 views of the various parts. Even if this doesn’t translate into a bestseller on DVD, it’s something that can be done inexpensively and will remain relevant for years to come. I eventually forsee a three to four hour series in three parts. The remaining script is better and more interesting than part one. The main problem is going to be cutting it down to about half of what I have now. Otherwise, we are talking about at least four more hours.

There has been a special “podcast edition” of part one available since last spring. But I am not going to sell this DVD because the new version is going to be far superior. If you want a review copy however, contact me. I have several copies on hand.

The entire script for parts one, two and three are at http://therealjesus.com/. If you ever want to critique what is coming up, I am open to suggestions.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Running Time: 28 minutes
