It’s no surprise I love to travel and I love history. When you combine the two? That’s code for I’m interested. If you’re looking for a way to experience both, the latest in Ray Vander Laan’s That the World May Know DVD Study, Israel’s Mission, is one you need to check out.
Join renowned teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan as he guides you through the land of the Bible. In each lesson, Vander Laan illuminates the historical, geographical, and cultural context of the sacred Scriptures. Filmed on location in the Middle East, the Faith Lessons DVD series will transform your understanding of God and challenge you to be a true follower of Jesus.
The history, the glimpse into the culture and world of God’s chosen people, Jesus and the biblical world all combined for an intriguing learning experience. With each lesson, Vander Laan not only provides a historical context, but also how it all relates to us and how we can apply that to our daily lives.
The views of the land (like the Sinai Desert) were beautiful and I can only imagine how incredible they’d be in person.
There was lots of scripture to following along and follow up for further study. This study was a reminder of our mission as believers in today’s world. In the later episodes, he used the story of the prodigal son to share even more about the times and culture. I really enjoyed diving more into all that that parable meant.
The study guide is also a wonderful resource. Along with pages to follow along during the videos, there’s daily studies for the week. Full of questions to further your study, the book also includes more facts about the time and takes you deeper into scripture.
Plus Randy has a lot of passion for teaching and sharing, so he holds an audience and keeps your attention. While this would be a great study to do solo, I think going through this with a group would be more rewarding – there are a lot of encouraging discussions to be had after each of these lessons.
I can’t tell you how high the Holy Lands are on my travel bucket list! How about y’all?
