Synopsis and Project Scope

Tetelestai is an 11-part cinematic Bible study series which investigates the key biblical narratives from Creation to the Resurrection of Christ. Through a mixture of cinematic scenes and dynamic teaching the audience is led through key truths about a God who loves humanity and is willing to pay the price for their rescue.

Beyond a film series, the Tetelestai Project is a long-term initiative to translate and distribute the series to major and minor people groups across the globe. Through partnerships with broadcasters, missions agencies, supporters and organizations, Light in Action has the goal of equipping the church with Tetelestai and it’s auxiliary resources as a high quality effective evangelism tool. All sales of Tetelestai in “reached” nations help finance translation and adaptation projects for people groups with little or no access to Christian material.
