Review of Exploring Ephesus Review is an online website full of Christian and family movies. There mission is to honor God through their work.  If you are looking for wholesome movies for your family to enjoy, you now have a one stop shop where you can find most of what you are looking for including the Veggie Tales series, The Bible - The Epic History Channel Miniseries, Apologetics and Creation, and so many more.  They also offer free shipping on orders of $35 or more.

We were given the opportunity to review the DVD,  Exploring Ephesus.This DVD is currently available for $11.99. Review

It is a documentary style film taking you on a tour of the important Biblical city of Ephesus which is located on the western portion of modern day Turkey.  The film is approximately 58 minutes long.  You will follow along with Dr. Mark Wilson and Dr. Andy Jackson as their share their historical and Biblical knowledge of what is left behind in the ancient city.  

If a real life field trip overseas doesn't fit your schedule or pocket book, this is a great alternative!  How exciting to have the opportunity to follow along the same path of the Apostles without even leaving your chair. 

You will follow in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul as he traveled on his missionary journeys in Ephesus.  Some of the historical artifacts scene during your tour include the one last standing pillar of The Temple of Artemis, the Library of Celsus which includes an imprint of a menorah, the theatre where the mob gathered mentioned in Acts 19:23-41, what many believe to be the tomb of the apostle John, the Isle of Patmos where John was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write the book of Revelation, a cave containing Paul's name and picture, and so many more places.

I watched this DVD myself but I intend to have my high schooler watch it as well to aid in his Biblical history studies of the New Testament. I did notice at the end of my DVD, the mouths did not match up with the sound but it was not like that in the beginning.  

Overall, I found this to be an extremely interesting DVD and I learned a lot of which I did not know before. I especially found the scenic tours fascinating to watch.  Another favorite part was when the tour guides were explaining a place they were visiting and would pull out their Bibles and read straight from Scripture.  I also liked the subtitles given of the artifacts making the visual connection between the place and it's name.

There is a bonus feature included with the DVD that contains discussion on the book of Ephesians, the seven churches mentioned in Revelation, and lessons we can learn today.

You can find out more about this DVD and many other Christian and family friendly films by visiting their website, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, or YouTube.
