This is the coolest video I’ve seen in some time, from the Western Conservatory of the Arts and Sciences site. It is a short animated presentation of the spread of the Gospel over the last 2,000 years.
From the Western Conservatory site:
This animated map is a powerful visual depiction of the most important movement in history: the spread of Christianity. Every frame is one year in the last 2000 years of the Great Commission. This is an animated version of the data on our 24×36″ printed Spread of the Gospel Map:
Charting the geographic progress of the Gospel over the last 2,000 years, this map shows the missionary journeys of the apostles, the outposts of the early church, the hotbeds of persecution, the staging grounds of the Church’s major theological battles, and more. See the power of the Gospel to transform “every nation and tribe and language and people,” and be inspired by the legacies of the brave brothers and sisters who faithfully carried the Gospel of Christ to the farthest ends of the earth.
The 24″ x 36″ color printed map is available for purchase on their site. You can read more about these here.
