The denial of Peter

The denial of Peter

People hoped Jesus was coming to free them from the enemies. But Jesus was arrested by the Roman rulers. Peter became afraid but watched when they interrogated Jesus and were beating him and said even cursing that he didn’t know him. When they met after the resurrection, they had to have an honest conversation.

Psalm 139

It is difficult for people to know themselves. It’s often easier to understand the world around you, right? But knowing yourself is understanding the greatness of the Creator. And look. Stand in front of a mirror. Look closely. Smile. Pull a face. Yes, that’s you.

meet the artist

Ever wondered who creates all these beautiful stories? Well, let's introduce you to our sand artist, Harm van Schaik.

He started a few years ago with drawing the first scenes in sand on a piece of wood, trying to tell the story of creation in a new way. Now, after millions of views of the Sandy Tales videos, he still tells all kinds of different Bible stories.

When he’s drawing one scene, he often changes something in the picture and the whole scene is transformed on your screen to something brand new. Every time you see it, you will be amazed. And touched.
