Door to Heaven: 5 Uplifting Vintage Short Subjects
(Black & White)
This collection of religious films was created to uplift and inspire. The first two entries produced by the Scriptures Visualized Institute were created and dedicated to the audio-visual spreading of the gospel. The two short subjects which follow are from the TV series "The Living Bible," which dramatizes the life of Christ in 24 episodes. In the final installment in this collection, "Whither Thou Goest," contemporary Christians (circa 1948) find answers in the Scriptures to the crisis they face today.

Although many paths are professed by mankind, there is but one true path of entry into Heaven. A Tree of God's Planting (1954): The tree with it's steady, silent constant growth, it's sturdiness, it's ability to provide fruit for others can serve as a guide for mankind's spiritual growth. Jesus Heals the Man Born Blind (1952): Jesus encounters a beggar who has been sightless from birth. Explaining that the man is not blind as a punishment for past sin, but so that the Lord might demonstrate his majesty through him, Jesus performs a miracle and restores the man's sight. The Upper Room (1952): Jesus performs a miracle and restores the man's sight. The Upper Room (1952): Jesus instructs his disciples to find a house in which they can celebrate the Passover feast. He teaches his followers a lesson in humility by washing every man's feet.
