About the DVD
The astounding prophetic rebirth of Israel is told through the discovery of an ancient and unlikely artifact found under the shores of the Sea of Galilee. A first century fishing boat, identical to the boat Jesus sailed upon with his disciples, was destroyed in the years Israel was destroyed by the Romans, but found 2000 years later in a series of astonishing events that even scientists called a miracle. Mirroring Israel's own story of devastation and survival, the boat from the time of Jesus, would rise against all odds and float upon the Sea of Galilee once more as the oldest surviving freshwater boat in the world. Featuring commentary from some of the great theologians of our day including Franklin Graham, Joel Rosenberg, Jay Sekulow, Skip Heitzig, Chuck Smith and more.

My Take on the DVD
This is a nonfiction movie about Israel, Jesus, Jewish history, and finding a boat. Not just any boat, but a boat that was used during the time that Jesus was on Earth, particularly the area in which the boat was recovered.

The movie shows the importance of Jesus and his predictions during his life time. Many of his predictions came true although they were made thousands of years ago. The movie also shows the importance of boats like these which were used by fishermen. Fish was indeed a staple for the people of Jesus time. The movie also shows the struggles of the Jewish people due to the Romans and other invaders. 

The boat was actually located due to ancient coins and other artifacts that were found in the same area. The archaeologists painstakingly dug it up and today it is in a museum.

An interesting event occurred after the boat was completely uncovered, they found it was being eaten away by worms once out of the water and mud. It was a fisherman of the area who solved the problem by using goldfish to eat the worms. 

If you enjoy history, I believe you will find this movie fascinating and worth taking the time to watch it.
