This Easter Behold The Passion: From The Holy Land Experience on Sky Angel’s “Angel Two” Channel
(Naples, Fla.) – The Passion Play is an Easter tradition around the world, being staged in thousands of venues across the globe. But thanks to TBN, The Holy Land Experience and Sky Angel, our viewers won’t have to leave their homes to view one of the best-filmed versions of this sacred story. “The Passion: Holy Land Experience" special will air on Sky Angel’s Angel Two channel as part of an Easter Marathon of great programming honoring the death and resurrection of Jesus. The special, filmed and produced by Sky Angel Productions, was filmed during a live performance of the Passion performance ‘Behold The Lamb’ at Trinity Broadcasting Network’s The Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Florida.
This unique television special is available exclusively to audiences on Angel Two (channel 102 on Sky Angel and channel 9702 on DISH Network). The Passion: From The Holy Land Experience is scheduled to air Sunday, April 12th from 6pm - 6:30pm EST. Angel Two is one of over 75 channels available to Sky Angel subscribers nationwide.
Sky Angel subscribers will also be able to watch the extended full-version of The Passion, plus interviews with “Jesus” (played by Les Cheveldayoff) and Nick Kroger, in the Video On Demand library under the special Easter category.
The Passion drama is the longest running of all the shows at The Holy Land Experience, telling the story through powerful original songs including "Via Dolorosa," "Behold the Lamb," and “He’s Alive” and the reenactment of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.
“The whole focus of the Holy Land Experience is to draw individuals and families closer to the life-transforming truths found in Scripture,” said Paul Crouch Jr., Chief of Staff of TBN and President of Holy Land Experience. “That includes Christ’s death and resurrection. We’re thrilled to share our own unforgettable dramatization of His passion with audiences and viewers all over the world.”
“In a time when Christian holidays are so commercialized and trivialized, it's refreshing as a broadcaster to be able to deliver a program that reminds us, in a moving and dramatic way, why we are Christians," said Hope Daley, Vice President of Sky Angel Productions (www.skyangelproductions.com). "This production of 'Behold the Lamb' from TBN's Holyland Experience park will make viewers believe they are there. The actors interact with the crowd while at the same time being true to the essence of The Passion, making it accessible to a whole new generation of audiences. We are proud of our partnership with TBN, the fact that all five of their networks are part of the Sky Angel family, and that we have this incredible opportunity to present such a ground-breaking program."
