1914 – The Year That Changed The World
More than a hundred years have passed since those ill-fated shots on June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo, which provided the spark that ignited World War I. Many who endeavor to explain 1914 feel that the deep-lying reasons are really not easy to understand. Why was the war not restricted to those parties directly involved? Why did it escalate into a world war? What really was this strange power that got a grip on humankind in the autumn of 1914?
Very few people expected 1914 to be anything other than an ordinary year. But unlike the world at large, the Jehovah’s Witnesses expected 1914 to be a pivotal year long before it arrived. How did Bible prophecies help them to expect these developments?
Our virtual visit to Vienna (Austria) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) will help you to understand the history of the Balkans and the Habsburg Empire. Visit with us the two museums in Vienna and the authentic sites in Sarajevo.
Questions that will be answered on tour:
- Why be interested in the year 1914?
- Why did World War I turn the world upside down? Was it really just a colossal accident? How did statesmen and their military advisers grossly miscalculate risks and cause the loss of millions of lives?
- How could two shots from a 19-year-old schoolboy set the whole world afire? How did it all happen? Why did that happen just then and just there?
Reviews from our guests:
Amazing detail, facts and illustrations
The historical facts were amazing. I loved the illustration of the “Time Lock” for a bank vault and its application to Jehovah’s Timetable. The lessons for us today at the end of the presentation were brilliant. Thank you so much to our Tour Guide/Host, I was captivated from beginning to end and will definitely attend again!
A really well-presented, clear, and informative tour. It took a few attempts to get to see it but we are glad we persevered! Highly recommend. Thank you.
Thank you, Scott. The tour was the second time for me. It really drives the points into the recesses of memory and awareness. The fact that Bible prophecy matches and meshes so well with both Bible chronology and the flow of historical events only serves to convince one of the authenticity of the written “Word” of God. It cannot be from the mind of man.
1914 the year that changed the world
Very interesting and informative.
Enjoyed the Sequence of Events
Jehovah’s timeline of events that something would happen in 1914 came just as written in the Bible. This tour showed thoroughly the sequence of events that led to a year that changed the world. I enjoyed it very much that I already booked a tour to see it again. Thank you tour guide!!!
Deep dive into what lead up to 1914
An excellent and well-researched look at the factors that lead up to the 1914 assassination while never forgetting the scriptural significance of these events. Jehovah was always highlighted correctly for what he prophesied and how events turned out.
I will definitely be watching it again
This was an awesome tour. I will definitely be watching it again. I have already sent the information to a number of friends for them to watch.
Enjoyed the bible history
We truly enjoyed this history into the world vs biblical prophecy. It is so encouraging to keep on the watch even more so in these last days.
What a fascinating look at world events that continue to have a bearing right up to our day!
