Bible scholars continue to debate the timing of the Rapture, but why is such a mysterious event prophesied to happen in the first place? Is there a deeper understanding surrounding this occurrence that we've lost over the millennia that those living in the first-century clearly understood? Although most people today no longer believe that Jesus is coming back, newly discovered ancient anthropological evidence from the time of Christ finally reveals unprecedented findings that could prove the upcoming Rapture is not only real, but why this event must soon some to pass. Regardless of your end-times views, Before the Wrath will captivate believers and non-believers alike; revealing new depths of theological understanding regarding what Jesus revealed to the ancient Galileans about the end of the world in ways you could never have imagined.
But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.

This docudrama highlights the importance and impact of Biblical prophecy concerning the Christian's view of the rapture. In the book of Revelation, John witnesses a vision of the forthcoming judgements of God, Satan, and man. Beyond The Wrath explains how to avoid these judgements and the end of mortal man.
By comparing the ancient Galilean wedding ceremony to the prophesies foretold by the apostle John, the viewer gets a better idea about the marriage supper of the lamb, which is a symbolization of the relationship between Jesus (the bridegroom) and his bride (the church/his people).
While the drama part is not necessary or required for the layout of the movie, it acts as a visual aid helping viewers to better understand the processes explained by the commentators.
Being prepared for Christ's return is the main theme; once the door is closed to a Galilean wedding feast, it is locked and no one can get in or go out. The same principle applies to those who are not ready for Jesus's return. For example, ten bridesmaids were supposed to be ready for the wedding, that could happen at any time, day or night. When the time came for the wedding feast five of them lacked enough oil for their lamps, and therefore were locked out due to their unpreparedness.
