This Review Reveals Minor Details About the Plot.

Prophecy in Stone

Plot Overview

educational suppliesNarrator Ken Klein gives us a three-part examination of one of the seven wonders of the world: the Great Pyramid of Giza. The 3 one-hour discs cover in turn: “setup, complication, and resolution.” The first, “The Great Pyramid—Lost Legend of Enoch,” refutes the orthodox archaeology that it's the burial tomb of Pharaoh Khufu. The high water mark on inside and out reveal it to have been constructed before the great deluge of Noah's day. The second disc, “The Great Pyramid—Message from the Stars” uses computer graphics to demonstrate a level of scientific sophistication in its siting and construction that belie the assumption that mere human intelligence could account for it. The third, “The Great Pyramid—Gate­way to the Galaxy,” further develops the graphics and explores history to peg its architect as Enoch the seventh from Adam, who is said to have (Gen. 5:21-24) “walked with God.”


Mention is made of the Great Pyramid in, (Isaiah 19:19) “In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.” The Great Pyramid is situated on the border between upper and lower Egypt putting it both in the midst of the land and at the border thereof, a seeming contradiction.

(Jer. 32:20) “Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt.” There is no greater sign and wonder in Egypt than the Great Pyramid; it's more than some stupid tomb at any rate.

(Jasher 3:36) “Enoch ascended into heaven in a whirlwind, with horses and chariots of fire.” In the movie there's an implication that some kind of flying vessel took him, what today we'd call a UFO. An empty coffer in the pyramid represents this ascension, which in turn prophesies the resur­rection of Christ.

Production Values

” (2008) was written, directed, and produced by Ken Klein who was also its major narrator. He skill­fully mixed his narration with location shots, biographical material, and special effect illustrations with computer graphics. It's rated G for general audiences, the only potentially objectionable material being blurred, archival pictures and speculations about mysterious flying objects in the distance. One artist's representation of a flying saucer nearby in my town [!] looked like a ‘B’ movie ship from the '50s. We only rated a jalopy.

Review Conclusion w/ Christian Recommendation

This trilogy was easy to follow, and each of the three discs was its own program that could be spaced out over time, though they should be viewed in order. I found it very informative about the Great Pyramid, and it hinted at more to be learned through further study. It pretty much came through with what it promised.
