Patmos (1985)


As an older man, the Apostle John was sentenced to forced labor on the island of Patmos. Not only did he experience the joy of ministering to a young group of believers, also fellow prisoners, but God honored John with His visions, faithfully transcribed to become the Book of Revelation. Experience Patmos! Experience the hard physical labor, the blessings, and some of the vision.

Dove Review

This is a true-to-the-Bible movie about John the Revelator who receives the Revelation of Jesus Christ while serving time on the isle of Patmos. He serves hard time, breaking rock at a quarry yet he receives a holy visitation.

The riders of the horses appear and these scenes are handled extremely well. This is a well-made movie which gives the viewer a good idea of things that are supposed come to pass in the future.

We see the rider going forth to conquer, war, famine and the resulting death. John’s vision of the elders casting their crowns at Jesus’ feet is seen and is very well done. We are pleased to award our Dove “Faith Friendly” Seal for ages twelve plus to this wonderful and remarkable DVD. This one has earned five Doves from us, our highest rating.
