In the tradition of Patterns of Evidence, Producer/Director Timothy Mahoney welcomes a new investigative filmmaking partner, Christophe Hanauer, a French Christian Producer, and the founder of Millennium Productions, to the Thinking Man Films family. 


The feature-length documentary follows Christophe and acclaimed global scholars as they examine the mysterious letters written to seven churches, the roots of persecution in the 1st-century church, and how these messages connect to our everyday lives.


“For centuries, there has been a profound mystery surrounding the meaning of the Book of Revelation,” shares Timothy. “We are honored to share Christophe’s film with an English-speaking audience, so Americans can experience these scriptures from a historic, educational perspective, breaking down the messages given by Christ to each of the churches referenced and seeing how it applies to our lives today.” At a time when we are living with much uncertainty, this film asks one of the greatest questions of all, “Are you ready?”


In the first century A.D., Asia Minor experienced a strong ideological revolution. Christianity was spreading like wildfire across the Roman Empire and was challenging ancient pagan worship and the order established by imperial Rome. During this holistic time is when Saint John wrote his book of Revelation - one of the most complex and mysterious books of the Bible. The text addresses seven churches located in what is now modern-day Turkey, each of whom received a personal letter from the risen Christ.


The October release of The 7 Churches of Revelation: Times of Fire examines the first three churches that Saint John addresses: Ephesus, Smyrna, and Pergamon, as well as the Island of Patmos where the book was penned. The following two films in the series will be released in 2022 and 2023 respectively.


Fathom Events, RevelationMedia, and Thinking Man Films will show The 7 Churches of Revelation: Times of Fire in movie theaters nationwide on Monday, October 11, and Tuesday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. local time.
