Joseph, Tbn Joseph, Joseph B discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
Okay, so the big news is for the first time ever, you guys are coming out with a movie. Yes. Okay. And that's a Christmas movie called I heard the bells. It is. And we are so beyond excited about it, and we can't believe it's finally here. Now, before we talk about that, which is the big news, the headline, I heard the bells, the film. You are also airing on TBN Joseph. We are. Now, and when is that airing? The 25th of November. Coming up here. It's coming up every day. November 25th on TBN at 8 and 10 p.m. Eastern Time, TBN is airing Joseph. So before we get into, I heard the bells this big Christmas movie. Tell us a little bit about Joseph because obviously this is in a few days. Yeah. So Joseph hasn't been live on one of our stages for quite some time, but it is one of my favorite shows that we produce. And one of my favorite stories. If you're familiar with the story, you know what happens. But watching Joseph B kind of torn apart from his family, the life that he leads and then the power of forgiveness and reuniting with his family for giving his brothers seeing his father again. It is just an incredibly moving story and one of my most favorites. So we're super excited to be partnering with TBN again. Okay, and so that is on November 25th. 8 and 10 p.m. Eastern Time, the story of Joseph. You don't want to miss that folks. You can't believe you really can't do it justice and describing it. Last time you were here, you were telling us about like, you know, 400,000 sheep or something. I mean, it was just like the exact numbers. So but my favorite part was that the animals have understudies. They do, 'cause they're just like people and they have bad days and sick days and doctors appointments just like we do. So under studies you're praying for a break, like if I could just get in there, show them what I could do. People think I'm a regular sheep. I'm not if I could just get up there on that stage and wow the audience and I'm going to go to the top. So typical, you know, they do. They steal the spotlight. It's just the way they are. So that's November 25th, 8 and 10 p.m.. And that's Joseph of the Technicolor dreamcoat fame. But okay, so the film, how is it that you all decided to make a film a Christmas film? This one is called, I heard the bells. Yeah. So from the very beginning, film has been a part of our story. My grandparents founded sight and sound. In many ways, by accident, but through using multimedia. It was a multimedia slideshow back in the 60s. They kind of helped us get our find our footing, if you will. And ever since then, media has been a part of what we do. So whether we are filming stage shows for things like broadcasting on TBN, or media in the actual shows themselves projection, giant LED screens, all these different elements that help to bring these stories to life. Media has been a part of what we've done. And as we felt the lord several years ago calling us to expand, we weren't sure at first truthfully, was it like, is it another location? What does this mean? What does this look like? And we really started to feel this call towards telling stories beyond the stage and beyond the Bible. There are so many historical true stories that are powerful. That are waiting to be told. And so this launch into Sight & Sound films, this new branch that we have launched this past year and our debut film I heard the bells is our first step towards that, what we feel like the lord is calling us towards in the future. Not that theaters is going.
