DVD Release: September 8, 2017
Following the Messiah


See the gospel through a different sense as two men explore the places Jesus lived during His life on earth. Get up close to the ruins of the ancient city of Capernaum, take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, and walk through the arid wilderness of Judea. Jeremy Dehut and Barry Britnell are your tour guides on this incredible journey through the Bible lands, both old and new.

Over a year in the making “Following the Messiah” (from producers Craig Dehut and Stuart Peck along with cinematographer Jet Kaiser) is a visually stunning journey that tells the story of Jesus Christ as told through the Bible and its lands.

Dove Review

“Following the Messiah” is a treasure hunt that goes beyond the caverns, crypts, and exotic locales to which hosts Barry and Jeremy lead us. In each adventure, they hold Christ in a definite reverence that exemplifies his holy nature – Jesus is someone the makers want to characterize by his geography and his culture. Knowledge is gold in this series, bringing rich New Testament history to life.

“Mythbusters” with a dash of “Indiana Jones” makes up the identity of this series. It is an easily accessible program for all ages, although some subjects might prove dry or too dark for younger viewers. Still, the show highlights Jesus’ life by way of contextualizing his place in time. From walking the lands and waters of his time, to learning about tools and spices used during the time, Jesus is never seen in the show, but he becomes thrillingly alive.

“Following the Messiah” is a fascinating informational, and even more so, it is a caring testament to people curious about Jesus’ life to this day. Dove is pleased to awards “Following the Messiah” the Seal of Approval for All Ages.
