    • Synopsis
    • After a brush with death, Geologist Jefferson Williams seeks meaning for his life. Due to a chance encounter with the Bible, he realizes that the earthquake reported by the Gospel of Matthew in the moments after Jesus' death can be studied scientifically. Along the way, he must overcome skepticism, media sensationalism, academic apathy, and personal challenges to achieve his goal to understand if the timing of physical events on the day of the crucifixion - darkness, an earthquake, and a lunar eclipse – happened as reported or not. Interviews with the leading Scientists and New Testament Scholars provide background for a fascinating take on the most influential story in human history.
