The actor who plays Jesus (Jim Caviezel) said this movie will have "shocking" parts. One part, that has been reported, is the idea that Jesus went to Hades after the crucifixion and prior to the resurrection to preach to souls in "hell."' Is that what the New Testament teaches?

Instead of a celebration of a separation from Rome, many celebrated the 500 anniversary of Martin Luther's 95 theses as an ecumenical time to come together. Vatican, Eastern Orthodox, and and Protestant leaders made positive comments about the 500th anniversary. When does the Bible teach Christian unity is to come about? Is the ecumenical movement good or, instead consistent with something that Jesus warned about? Are Christians to come out of spiritual Babylon and be separate?

Hurricane Irma wiped out most of the island of Barbuda, caused a million to lose power in Puerto Rico, devastated St. Martin's, hit Cuba, and hit Florida. A news headline stated " 'Nature’s gone crazy': Winds, fire, floods and quakes plague North America." Is there any tie to prophecy? Are heavy winds and rains discussed in the Bible?
