Publisher's Description

This five-session small group Bible study, Early Church, by noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan, is volume five of the 12-part Faith Lessons series. In this volume, Vander Laan uncovers the passion and commitment early believers displayed as they claimed Jesus in the face of fierce consequences and powerful adversaries.

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 unique insights into the Scriptures' significance for modern believers.

The Early Church Discovery Guide (180 pages) includes five sessions. Each lesson…

- Focuses on passages of Scripture explored in the DVD
- Includes sidebars, maps, photos and other study tools
- Features questions that facilitate discussion and inspire personal reflection
- Includes 30 personal Bible studies to help you deepen your learning experience between sessions, and turn lessons from the past into applications that impact how you live out your faith today.

The companion DVD for Early Church was filmed on location in Caesarea Philippi, Sardis, Pergamum, Ephesus, and Laodicea.

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 Discovery Guide is designed for use with the Early Church DVD (sold separately).

Lessons include:

1. Everything to Lose, Nothing to Gain – Filmed in Caesarea Philippi
2. The Salt of the Earth – Filmed in Sardis
3. Where Satan Lives – Filmed in Pergamum
4. The Mark of the Beast – Filmed in Ephesus

    We have used several of Ray's series for couples studies and they are excellent learning tools helping to put the Biblical writings in the historical cultural context. Those truely interested in grasping what God is saying in its full context would find Ray's materials invaluable.

    What an eye-opening study! Get closer to God and see the many Hebrew references that we as westerners miss! Use the study with the DVD of the same name. You'll be amazed!

    This is the fifth book in the That the World May Know series by Vander laan and is a very good study on the spread of the Gospel across the world following the previous four studies on the locations in Israel. I highly recommend not only this book but the entire series.

    My six children love Ray Vander Laan's "Faith Lesson" DVD's. I bought all the DVD's and all the study guide books so that I could learn in depth. This book is fantastic. It brings deeper thoughts, greater knowledge and it is a pleasure to spend time working on each chapter. I do this study guide on my own, after watching the Faith Lesson... and I love it. Many times after I finish my study book chptr, I will watch the DVD session over and catch more details. LOVE IT!!!
