Theological Scholars Explore Biblical Truth Regarding the Supernatural in New Documentary
Film to Premiere Feb. 5, at local Jacksonville church
The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible, a new original documentary film from Faithlife TV productions, reveals the strange and enigmatic plane of the supernatural described within the pages of Scripture. Inspired by the bestselling book by Dr. Michael S. Heiser and hosted by Emmy-nominated actor and director Corbin Bernsen, The Unseen Realm takes viewers on a journey to understand the supernatural as Heiser and a panel of biblical scholars unpack the theological intricacies of angels, demons, Nephilim, giants and so much more.
“Much of what we think we know about the spirit world isn’t true,” said Heiser. “It’s been filtered down through centuries of church tradition. Angels do not have wings, demons don’t have horns or tails. And for the biblical writers, the unseen realm was home to more than angels and demons. There were other bigger players. So do you believe what’s in your Bible?”
The Unseen Realm explores the depths of the supernatural and its significance to Christians by scrutinizing passages of Scripture often left unread, let alone studied, by the average believer. Experts and scholars interviewed throughout the film draw from decades of research and a personal relationship with Christ when tackling tricky topics head-on, including what comprises God’s heavenly host, which supernatural beings are found on earth, and why a good God would allow corruption among the supernatural.
“The Bible asks us to believe a lot of strange things about the spiritual world,” said Heiser. “At first, we might be tempted to ignore them but if we say we believe the Bible, we can’t avoid these concepts.”
Leading biblical scholars in the film include:
- Heiser, author of The Unseen Realm and Scholar-in-Residence at Logos Bible Software,
- Dr. Ben Witherington III, Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky,
- Dr. Darrell Bock, Executive Director of Cultural Engagement at The Hendricks Center and Senior Research Professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas,
- Dr. Eric Mason, founder of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and
- Dr. Gary Yates, Professor of Old Testament at Liberty University’s Rawling School of Divinity.
By embracing the difficult questions posed by some of the Bible’s most complex excerpts, audiences of The Unseen Realm are guided into a more profound understanding of our spiritual origins and paramount purpose as citizens of God’s supernatural kingdom.
“Faithlife TV content serves a higher purpose than simply entertaining viewers,” said Faithlife Founder and CEO Bob Pritchett. “We aim to educate audiences on all things biblical to strengthen their worldview and elevate their understanding and appreciation of their faith.”
The Unseen Realm will premiere on Feb. 5, 2o2o at Celebration Church, Celebration Arena at 9555 R G Skinner Pkwy Jacksonville, FL 32256.
