What has been the reaction to theses video classes?
Here are a few reactions I’ve had to the Prophecies of Daniel videos:
“I don’t usually see in my mind the scenes visually when I read the writings of the prophet Daniel. So these videos especially make the experiences and visions Daniel had seem so much more understandable when I can see them this way.”
“Our students said that the subtitles on the videos helped a lot since English is not their first language.”
“These videos are really very helpful and we show them to the ones who come to our house for spiritual studies.”
“It’s been difficult finding material for our kids that teach this subject without a strong political message behind it. These videos do not deliver a modern political message and they are simple enough for our children. The visuals really help them pay attention and learn from them.”
Are you planning to do more videos?
Up till now, I have completed the videos through Daniel chapter 9. This has amounted to 6 full length videos and 3 supplementary ones. At this time I’m concentrating on getting the first 3 videos into other languages and this may take me well into 2019 to do this. But I do have it on my horizon to try to complete the rest of the book of Daniel in video. Those videos would be on Daniel chapters 10 through 12.
Do you give live classes someplace?
At this time, no. If this does work out, I’ll aim to post my calendar of this here on the site. But, if you are interested, I did do a live series of classes on the Book of Acts in 2014. Audio recordings were done of those and a blog post about these can be found here.
Are you representing any group or denomination in doing these videos?
This project has been a personal initiative of my own. I am not representing any group or denomination. But I have had numerous individuals help me along the way with these videos. This series is not funded or organized by anyone but myself.
What is your background and what are your personal beliefs about God?
I was an atheist in my third year at the University of Texas at Austin when a series of experiences changed me into a very surprised believer in the God of Abraham. For 7 months I guess you could call me an ardent monotheist. I knew that God was real but I just didn’t know who Jesus was. After that I met some young people who were able to show me the words of Jesus in the Bible. Since then I have had an active life of service for God and mankind, most of the time outside the US. I have more about my life since then and my beliefs on the companion site, markmcmillion.com.
