Our tiny Appian Media family just finished our nightly meeting reviewing the plans for our final day of production. In some ways it seems like the time has flown by! It was a joy to sit together and remember our previous days of production, the locations, the events, the bloopers…

It's 104 degrees and our crew is, once again, standing in direct sun at our third location of the day.  

I love my children. I truly do. I love the fact that they can quote nearly any line from the Andy Griffith Show. I love that they help their Mom with the groceries. And I love that they do not complain when we get up early and go to worship on Sunday.

We are incredibly blessed with Jeremy and Barry's ability to bring the lands of the Bible to life through their knowledgeable and engaging presentation of the history, geography, and power of the gospel story. However, pairing this exceptional content with compelling visuals can at times be a challenge.

Our team is wrapping up eight days of filming in Jerusalem and now we're packing our gear and preparing to head north to Galilee.

During our time here in Jerusalem, we have spent countless hours in the Old City: immersing ourselves in the colors, sights, sounds, and smells. With 360* video, we are finally able to place you right in the middle of this unique and lively place and show you just how incredible this place is! 

Wow…we had another fantastic day. In the early afternoon, we found ourselves at Jericho. The Biblical history that can be discussed at this location is almost endless. But while we were there, I was reminded of one of my favorite characters in the Bible.

In the last few years I have been tremendously blessed to travel and experience firsthand some of the most visually stunning and important physical memorials for the three largest monotheistic religions of the world (Christianity, Judaism and Islam).

We started our morning at the Church of the Holy Sepluchre. This single location carries an extreme amount of weight for the series because this is the traditional location of Golgotha and the tomb belonging to Joseph of Arimathea.

I consider myself very, very blessed. For me, traveling to Israel is not a “once in a lifetime” thing. In all honesty, it has become more of a habit. During the past five weeks, I think that I have logged more days in Israel then I have in the United States. As I said, I am truly blessed.
