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.

Kathy Leonhardt5 Stars Out Of 5June 14, 2009Kathy LeonhardtMy 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!!!
