Item description for Faith Lessons on the Promised Land (Home DVD Vol. 1) Home Pack/Bible Study Guides: Crossroads of the World by Ray Vander Laan & Focus On The Family...
Overview Filmed on location in Israel, Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God's Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible's fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals keen insights into the Scriptures' significance for modern believers. These illuminating "faith lessons" afford a new understanding of the Bible that will ground your convictions and transform your life. The Faith Lessons video series is ideal for use at home, especially in personal and family Bible studies. Individual believers and families will gain vital insights from long-ago times and cultures through this innovative approach to Bible study.
Community Description The first Faith Lessons volume focuses on God putting His mark on a people and their land, a mark he has extended through ancient israel to the faithful of today.
Filmed on location at these biblically significant sites:
1. Tel Gezer: Standing at the Crossroads
2. Jordan River: Wet Feet
3. Tel Jericho: First Fruits
4. Tel Beth Shemesh: Confronting Evil
5. Tel Azekiah: Iron of Culture
Faith Lessons is an in-depth video tour of the buried, distant, or otherwise forgotten places where the stories of the Bible actually happened. From this cultural perspective, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan challenges long-held Western assumptions about even the most well-known Scripture passages. The result? You and your family will simply never read the Bible the same again.
Nothing has opened and illuminated the Scriptures for me quite like the Faith Lessons series.
--- Dr. James Dobson

Brings the Bible to life! Mar 26, 2007
Ever wonder what it means to "sit in the gate?" What about seeing where David fought Goliath? This video makes all of those wonderful stories in the Bible come to life by seeing where they took place. It helps increase understanding by learning cultural and societal issues related to geography. You can see why God promised land that the Children of Israel gave up and the consequences of the decisions. I also like the fact that there are several separate topics, allowing you to use them for home study, one topic at a time. Each is about 30 minutes in length. Highly recommend this and other DVDs in the series.
Helpful, Complimentary Guide Nov 10, 2006
Our family used this guide with the DVD. We read the Bible verses suggested in the guide, then watched the DVD lesson, and then went through the questions in the guide. It was a very helpful addition to the DVD lesson, and brought even greater meaning to this wonderful DVD Bible study series.
