The Third Day


What proof do we have that the Resurrection really happened? This intriguing documentary digs deep into the biblical and historical accounts and explores the main theories: Did the disciples steal the body? Did they hallucinate and only imagine they had met the risen Jesus, or did they create a myth in order to keep the movement going? Scholars take a hard look and offer honest, thought-provoking answers. “Third Day” is an excellent resource for both skeptics and believers alike.

Dove Review

The validity of the Resurrection has been the subject of enormous debate for hundreds of years. Men and women throughout history have wrestled with seemingly unexplainable events involving Jesus Christ, his death and the circumstances surrounding his resurrection.

Many have asked, what proof is there that it really happened? Can it be scientifically proven? Did the disciples steal his body? Could the Resurrection be a hoax? Did the men and women closest to Jesus imagine the entire litany of events? Is it a complete fabrication, or a miracle?

The documentary tests and explores the authenticity of the Scriptures throughout the film, as it considers tough questions. “Third Day” is an intriguing exploration of the topic of Christ’s death and resurrection. It digs deeply into historical accounts recorded and retold over time, beginning with those who were actual eyewitnesses to the events of that day. This insightful documentary is sure to interest both believers and those inclined to question the reality of the gospel story. We are happy to approve this fine documentary with the Dove Faith Friendly Seal for viewers of all ages.
