The Apostles / The Garden of Eden



Double Feature

The Apostles

After the death and resurrection of Jesus, His followers dedicated themselves to spreading His message throughout the land. Now you can share this uplifting story with your entire family. The Apostles begins with a miracle. Peter, having been filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, heals a man who has been crippled since birth. The crowd that witnesses the miracle is amazed. But Peter reminds them that he performed this wondrous act for one reason only-to glorify Jesus' name. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that Peter and the other Apostles are in great danger. The religious authorities see them as a serious threat. And many of them are, indeed, persecuted. At the same time, however, some of the persecutors are themselves converted. Among them is a man who will eventually become the most important Apostle of all.

The Garden of Eden

In the beginning, God created Heaven and Earth... With those words the biblical story of creation begins. Adam is alone, but eventually, God decides to give him a companion and creates Eve. For a while it looks like they will live indefinitely in paradise, until the story takes a tragic turn. Tempted by a serpent, Eve eats fruit from the tree of knowledge - the one forbidden food in paradise. When God discovers what has happened he banishes Adam and Eve from the garden, now they must survive on their own.
