The video, “Death and Resurrection,” launches a new series from Fuller Theological Seminary’s FULLER studio that explores the church calendar through film.
“We’re excited to announce ‘Liturgical Meditations,'” Mark Labberton, President and Professor of Preaching at Fuller, stated recently on Facebook. “Our first video, ‘Death and Resurrection,’ portrays the night before and the morning of the resurrection of Jesus and marks the beginning of the season of Eastertide. It was filmed by FULLER studio at Paymaster Landing in Imperial County, California, and we offer this as a free resource for you, your church, and your community.”
Death and Resurrection
The liturgical calendar spans the life of Christ in a single year—from anticipation (Advent), to hope (Christmas), to transcendence (Epiphany), to lament (Lent), to redemption (Easter), to the birth of the church (Pentecost), and through long, numbered days (Ordinary Time) back to Advent, FULLER studio states on its website. “These video meditations rely on nature to tell the story of God, accompanied by scriptures traditional to each season. Note: All filming was done within driving distance of Fuller’s Pasadena campus; all narration is from faculty and staff, recorded in their native languages; and all titles are in the primary tongues of our community.”
In “Death and Resurrection” the audio is in French, and the subtitles are in English, Spanish, Mandarin, and Korean — “a poetic way to represent the primary tongues of our community.” The series is scheduled for release throughout the calendar year 2017-2018.
By digitizing, producing, and distributing material online, the studio offers individuals, small groups, and large communities access to Fuller’s wealth of theological resources. Drawing first and foremost from our outstanding faculty, then as well from a wider circle of Fuller friends and alumni from around the world—past and present—the studio will curate rich content around themes identified by our editorial advisory board and team. Our institutional vision is to create material reflecting seminary priorities informed by that editorial advisory board of faculty and senior leadership. Our deeper theological material, including the theology section in our companion magazine, is guest-edited by a faculty member, often with an editorial calendar planned years in advance.
