Iran in the Bible: The Forgotten Story | Presented by Our Daily Bread Films

For centuries Iran was known as Persia–the greatest empire the world had ever seen. But part of her story is often forgotten.

Woven together in the Bible are prophecies and accounts of Persian kings, epic battles, and royal decrees that changed the world. And surprisingly to many, the Bible speaks of Persia as being chosen and favored for God’s grand purposes.

In ‘Iran in the Bible,’ this remarkable story is told using ancient Persian texts, archaeological discoveries, and insights from scholars. What’s revealed is that both Persia and the Jewish people played a strategic role in the fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham–the promise that through him God would bless the world.

Showing how God is directly involved in history, ‘Iran in the Bible’ offers comfort to those living in a world of uncertainty.
