Come Follow Me

DVD Release: February 7, 2017
Come Follow Me


From the producers of “The Road to Emmaus” comes an exciting new Biblical drama: “Come Follow Me.” This film dramatizes the relationship between Jesus and the Apostle Peter. From the day Peter heard Jesus call his name, to the post-resurrection conversation when Jesus charges Peter to “feed my sheep,” this short film beautifully illustrates Peter’s transformation from fearful denier to bold leader of the early church. This film is also a way to introduce friends to the gospel message. Starring Bruce Marchiano as Jesus and Emilio Doorgasingh as Peter.

Dove Review

“Come Follow Me” is an inspiring film about following Christ. This dramatization of Jesus and his disciples looks at Biblical events and uses artistic license to imagine what a conversation between Peter and Jesus might have sounded like.

One of the strengths of this film is the superb acting of Bruce Marchiano as Jesus. Marchiano portrays him reverently and with happiness. Emilio Doorgasingh is excellent as Peter. The film features Christ calling his followers, teaching them, celebrating Passover, praying in Gethsemane, the crucifixion, the burial, the resurrection, and the ascension. One of the themes of this movie is to not be afraid. The film does a terrific job showing the power of Jesus, his integrity, and ultimately his amazing expression of love.

Due to a bloody scene of Jesus before and while he is on the cross, we are awarding this movie our Dove “Faith-Based” Seal.
