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 sessions on this DVD were 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.

DianaOklahoma City, OKAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentMay 10, 2013DianaOklahoma City, OKAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We were introduced to this series of DVDs in the mid 1990's at church and began buying them for our family. At first we used them for homeschooling Bible studies but we continued watching them over and over. Back then they were VHS and lately we've had problems with them wearing out and getting stuck in the VCR so we just ordered the first five again, this time on DVD. That's how good they are. We have all 12 and the study guides that go along with them and just continue to watch them in order from start to finish and never tire of them. Ray Vander Laan is an incredible, humble, insightful teacher and teaches from his heart as well as his mind. The scripture becomes much more real as he explains different cultures, customs and meanings of the Bible. Even though we have watched them many times it seems we still learn something new each time that we didn't pick up on before. Can't recommend these highly enough. Every time we get a catalog from CBD I open it first to these DVDs to check and see if #13 has arrived yet. We will continue to purchse them. It's the best Bible teaching my husband and I have ever received and we've been in church all our lives.
DaveDes Moines, IowaAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5This product fits our Bible Study situation well.June 23, 2011DaveDes Moines, IowaAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the second volume in the Faith Lesson series we have purchased. Although we have not finished viewing this product, so far we feel it is very well done. We have two special Bible Study groups at our church. Some participants feel they want to visit the Holy Land, but probably will not be able to. One reason we purchased this product was to see the Holy Land up close via DVD. The other reason, of course, is to learn more about the Bible. We are very happy with the purchase of both volumes.

Anita Martin5 Stars Out Of 5August 27, 2010Anita MartinRay Vander Laan is a great Bible teacher, and the lessons are so much more meaningful, in that they are taught right from the Holy Land. My class has been especially responsive to the study - we have two (2) weeks to go - hate to see it end!
