Echoes of the Bible: How Its Themes Pervade Today's Movies and TV

Date recorded: 19 May 2019 | Speaker: Tony Watkins | Event: ELF Media Communicators Network


Writers and film-makers may just want to tell a good story, but they inevitably communicate deeper messages. This is because our worldviews – our most fundamental beliefs and values – always show through in what we communicate. In the countless films made, most centre on a few underlying themes, reflecting central aspects of the Bible’s storyline. Here, Tony considers seven key themes, their connection to the Bible, how they therefore point to eternal realities, and how to communicate these realities more effectively.
