Roma Downey, actress / producer / filmmaker & the new movie "Resurrection"

The Tim DeMoss Show Podcast

Actress, producer & filmmaker Roma Downey gives the show a call from her home in California to give insight about her new film Resurrection. The film chronicles the events surrounding the Crucifixion and Resurrection (and beyond) primarily through the eyes of the disciples, including what life may very well have been like for them post-Resurrection--the dangers they faced, the persecution, and the growth of the church despite opposition from Caiaphas & the ruling elders. During the conversation, Downey says, "We hope this movie helps spread the gospel. Maybe somebody who doesn’t even know about anything about Jesus might watch the movie because they hear it’s a good movie and for the first time are exposed to the story. So we just pray for transformed hearts." She adds, “We haven’t been able to go to church together. We haven’t been able to be in community for awhile. I’m hoping this film sets a fire in people’s hearts. It’s great preparation for and celebration of Easter.” That her hope is to encourage should not be totally surprising. Downey was nominated for multiple Emmy & Golden Globe awards for her role as the angel Monica on the CBS series Touched By An Angel for nine seasons, with her character primarily one who encouraged.Downey also produced the mini-series The Bible for the History Channel and been involved with numerous other media efforts. Resurrection is currently available at www.discoveryplus.com. Also, Tim shares a special Easter cookie recipe he came across years ago. It's designed to teach about Easter as you go through the preparation and baking process. Find it below the "Featured" listings.
