This five-session small group Bible study DVD, Promised Land, by noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan, is volume one of the 12-part Faith series. In it, Vander Laan explores how God guided his people to the Promised Land to impact the world both in ancient times and today. Just like the time and place of our birth shapes our journey, so the land and culture of the Hebrew people shaped their story.
This volume, Promised Land, was filmed on location in Tel Gezer, the Jordan River, Tel Jericho, Tel Beth Shemesh and Tel Azekah.
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.
By weaving together the Bible's fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique 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 in small groups, personal and family Bible studies, and adult Sunday school. Individual believers and families will gain vital insights from long-ago times and cultures through this innovative approach to Bible study.
This DVD is designed for use with the Faith Lessons Promised Land Discovery Guide (158 pages; sold separately).
